Great personal service! Captain Jeff was very knowledgeable about explaining the fish and other wildlife and plants we would be seeing. Beautiful day and great conversation with Trish and Jeff. Plan to book again next year.

Personalized attention is easy when we have guests like you. No kidding, our day with your guys was about as good as it gets. Plenty to see and do and there never was a hint of needing to get back to the dock. Thank you!!! More

So glad we went with Namaste over of one or those large tours. It turned out to be just us and another couple on the tour. On the ride out to the reef Jeff provides background on the types of corral and fish you can expect to see. My companion was a first time snorkeler so very anxious, and Trish... More

The folks at Namaste provided a great snorkeling experience. Our small group of 5 (plus the two Namaste leads) were able to explore the living reef at our leisure without the pressure of a large informal tour. On the way to the site we learned about what we would see (variety of corals, sea creatures, habitats, etc.), which made the... More

We love small groups too. Your trip was especially nice because we were treated to such great conditions. Our best customers, like yourselves are the ones who truly know the difference between a quality reef experience trip and a cheap "cattle boat" beer buzz. More

My daughter and I went out with Namaste on June 28th, and we had a blast. They keep the groups small, incorporate real education on the reef, serve fresh food, and they're just really friendly thoughtful people. The reef is thick with fish, and our guides Jeff and Trish knew exactly where to moor for a really good look at... More

Jeff and Trisha were wonderful hosts. It was like a private snorkeling excursion and they were both so knowledgeable of the reef and different animals that live there. They both snorkeled with us and were sure to point out different wildlife and educate. They were quick to respond to any texts from us and were very flexible with our schedules.... More

Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We especially appreciate your comments on our educational component of the excursion. As former educators it would be remiss of us not to share our knowledge about the reef.

Our trip with Namaste' started with a phone call a day prior to our scheduled event. Jeff explained that the winds would not make a trip to the big reef area very enjoyable due to the winds. He offered to refund our money on the spot and offered an alternative if we still wanted to go out. The temperature was... More

What a top notch company! We had a wonderful lecture on what we would see while out. Both Trish and Jeff are very knowledgable. When we got out they determined that one area was too rough to Snorkel and the other not clear enough. They could have put us in anyway but didn't. I felt completely at ease with them.... More

Thank you so much for this honest review! To sum up this day one word comes to mind and that is "effort". We had high hopes of a barrier reef experience but upon approaching we discovered breaking waves which is never good for snorkeling. Might have been a great "Red Bull" commercial but we're just not into extreme sports and... More

Perfect weather, calm seas, clear visability. Couldn't ask for a better day. Great time with Jeff and Trish who are extremely knowledgeable about the ecology of the reef. A bit more pricy than the average "cattleboat" excursion, but you get what you pay for. A personal snorkeling experience with a couple who are gracious and passionate about their reef.
