The seas were a bit rough and there were a few seasick passengers on board, but other than that it was the perfect cruise for us and the timing is great... More

Had an amazing time on this. I hadn't been snorkeling before great crew on board. The water was rough the day we went, but it was well worth it.

The crew are awesome! Very friendly and very generous with drinks and food.We had a blast diving, boating, eating, drinking. The only negative is we purchased the cd of pictures $20.00 to look at one picture of us and a LOT of pictures of people we do not know. ( already threw it out ) You have to book this!!!

For the price you get a lot of value in this. The staff is great. Open bar on the catamaran with your choice of lobster, steak, chicken or a burger with sides for lunch. Plus transportation to and from your resort. Well worth it.

We have done catamaran sails before and this one was one of the best. The crew was very attentive and lots of fun. They grilled our lunch while we snorkeled. Don't hesitate to take this sail if you don't snorkel. My husband stayed on the boat and so did about half the passengers. They had great fun and there was... More

If you enjoy a little drink, good food, and snorkeling this is the excursion for you. The staff was very helpful and the ride on the catamaran was awesome. Well worth the money!

The crew were fantastic. Helpful, engaging, entertaining. During snorkeling on a small reef we saw turtles, manta rays, groupers, and lots of other fish. Cooking up a pretty good BBQ lunch and we sailed the afternoon away with music, drinks and lots of entertainment. We have done a lot of catamaran tours, and this was one of the best.

We were looking for a fun excursion and this was great. We sailed and were entertained by the staff the minute we set sail. The snorkeling was great and seeing the sea turtles was the highlight and first time for me. Good lunch, good music, and fun and entertaining staff made it very enjoyable. Our only complaint...it went by too... More

This catamaran excursion puts all others to shame. It is a large boat with plenty of room to move around and great crew who caters to your every need. The boat anchors near a reef and you can snorkel while the chef grills your lunch. The snorkeling is real good, we saw plenty of fish, sea turtles and stingrays. The... More

We had a blast on this cruise. The crew were top notch, never an empty drink in your hand, all were having a great time and made sure you did too. The snorkelling was so so. too many people trying to squeeze through the narrow passages to the reef, and felt rushed. Trip was a bit pricey too...
