The crew was enthusiastic, friendly and highly knowledgeable. Each passenger was given the snorkel or dive experience of their dreams. The food and hospitality were outstanding. The boat and...

After much deliberation and review we decided to pay a bit more and go for a boat with a smaller capacity and boy are we glad we did. The staff were absolutely professional, but extremely friendly and helpful...particularly to our 7YO girl (Maya) whom they took on as their boat hand for the day...she loved it so much. There is...

It was a great trip and money well spent. We were only 7 people in the sloop and it was almost like a private party. The staff was very friendly especially Phillip the first mate. Got to help out with the sails and get a crash course on sailing. The reef itself was a bit dull but it was a... More

Great staff, very professional, great attention to detail and safety. Almost everyone on the tour was under 30. A bit too many people for the size of the boat, as it felt a bit crowded at times. It doesn't help when a few people take up 3 or 4 spots each by laying flat out to catch some rays. There... More

The reef its self was the hit, seeing all these amazing sites! The crew was very attentive and nice, being on myself they asked frequently if everything is ok. The weather was not the best, but when landing on the sand bank (awsome!) the sun kept shining right on the spot. Snorkling with the crew and getting lots of information... More

I initially signed up only for the 1st dive and loved is so much that I finally joined the 2nd one. It was my first time diving and thanks to... More
