Had a blast snorkeling! Loved the crew, very informative and friendly! We were a family of 6, ages 19 to 72 and we all loved the experience! We went to two separate locations and got to see so many fish. Great time and value was amazing!

Had a great time out to the reef snorkeling. Very knowledgable, friendly staff. The boat was well equipped. All you had to do was bring yourself (and sunscreen)! We had awesome weather too (which helped), clear, sunny and the ocean was flat. I would definitely use this company again on any future excursions.

The Captain & the first mate were unbelievably awesome. I'm sorry I can't remember there names! I caught a shark & it took the first mate 45 minutes to reel it in, it was the most amazing experience ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our latest dive excursion was to Marathon. From the first conversation with Denise, I knew we were going to have an awesome time. We scheduled a week trip with 12 divers and 6 non divers. Coordinating these can be a nightmare. Denise had several pages of notes from all of our conversations to ensure every detail, concern and dive spots... More

Captain Mike warned us that the sea was choppy and could cause seasickness. We decided to go anyway. What he didn't tell us, unfortunately, was that the visibility was poor and he had to go to deeper places. He really tried to find good snorkelling spots but at last, it was a big deception for us. Staff was nice and... More

Had a great time on the sunset cruise with Captain Mike and Jim. They were both very friendly and we enjoyed talking to them during the cruise. They pointed out interesting houses and wildlife throughout the cruise. There was a champaign toast at sunset. While we were waiting to board the boat, we enjoyed watching the birds in the marina,...

Lots of fun and the boat captain and crew were helpful. We saw lots of fish and enjoyed the trip very much ... especially at the price of $25 each. The only thing I wondered about was how they just gathered up the snorkels and masks and I didn't see any sterilizing solution on the boat. So were those who... More
