We booked this excursion on our own while traveling with Royal Caribbean. There were 8 total in our group including 6 & 8 year old boys and a grandma:). The store front had a little liquor store inside & will send any purchases back to the boat for you. They also had drinks & snorkel equipment for purchased if you needed to grab something. Corrine was our guide & we met up with her in the store front right outside the cruise terminal port. She gave us loads of information about the island & wildlife throughout our tour with her!
We were driven to the yacht club where we boarded the jet skis. After a brief tutorial & being supplied with snorkel equipment, we were on our way! After about a 20 ride through the open waters, our first stop was with the stingrays...this was so incredibly amazing! The water was warm & waist deep, although the kids could not reach the bottom without treading water. There were tons of stingrays just swimming around. It was a little unnerving at first, but you quickly realize how gentle & harmless they really are! I even got a chance to hold a few in my arms. I wish we could have spent a little more time with them.
We then got back on the jet skis for a very short drive across the way to Starfish Beach. This was interesting because we got to handle them & see how starfish move & flip over if turned on there backside. There were only a handful of starfish in the shallow waters, but several along perimeter where the waters drop off from the ledge.
The 20 minute jet ski drive back to the yacht club was a rough one with choppy water, but nothing that was too hard to handle! The kids had a great time & enjoyed jumping the waves all the way back. We finished up with a drive back to the store front in the same nice air conditioned van back to the store front. Once there, we used the freshwater showers to rinse off with & headed out for lunch (not included).
I'd do this tour again & I highly recommend this company! They were very professional & even compensated us for a slight hiccup without us even even asking! They also gave us a discount card to enjoy lunch afterwards @ Rackums (a yummy restaurant just down the street).
