“Best snorkeling excursion!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

My boyfriend and I had a private snorkeling excursion with Alex and Javi and we both had an amazing experience! They are well priced for private tours and are so knowledgable of the reef, knowing where special sealife were hiding and pointing them out. The fresh fruit and beverages were great and the fresh water shower was a wonderful surprise! Alex is very accommodating (seeing a spotted eagle ray while driving on top that my boyfriend really wanted to see and letting him jump in to go after it) and attentive to any need or want we had. Javi was a true professional having suffered a major accident days earlier, he was at work energetic, friendly, and snorkeling with us and diving down to show us things. Amazing snorkeling excursion that I would highly recommend to everyone! Contact Alex directly through his website to set up a tour!!

“Snorkeling Excursion/during Caribbean Princess Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This was by far one of the highlights of our Caribbean Princess Cruise! The reefs there are one of the best in the world! Alex personally picked us up from our cruise port and drove us to the West End. We first snorkeled the Blue Channel, which was amazing! Then we snorkeled the reefs off of West End beach. Very personal tour, we had 2 guides for only four guests. Then made sure that we had a ride back to our cruise ship. Only wish is that we could've stayed longer. Thanks Alex!!!

“Awesome snorkeling experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Alex treated us like friends from the beginning — he introduced us to the reef and its marvels, he took us underwater showing us the best spots, and offered generous amounts of fresh fruit and drinks at the end.
The reef itself is gorgeous: plenty of different fishes, lobsters, beautiful coral and two lovely sea turtles who were kind enough to lead us for a while.
Kudos to Alex's assistant Javi for his patience and skills underwater.

“Best thing we did all week!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We were on a week long cruise on the Carnival Glory and like to book our own excursions when we can (thank you Trip Advisor!), I have to give credit to my husband, he found this gem of a tour company. First off, I have to comment on how great and accommodating the owner, Alex, was in all our emails ahead of time - he would always answer honestly and promptly, and was willing to deal with my slightly neurotic worry of being back on the ship early, by moving up our meeting time twice. We found him no problem exactly where he said he would meet us. He then drove us in his car to the marina, answering our questions and providing us information on the island. There were only 3 of us on the trip, and it was totally AWESOME!! Alex was the captain of course, and Javi (a young gentleman with a beautiful friendly smile) was the first mate. We did a total of two snorkeling stops, each different but equally amazing, I honestly could not pick a favorite. Alex found areas where there was no one but us. On the first stop, but he and Javi snorkled with us. They are both accomplished free divers - I was astounded to see how deep down they could go - and they pointed different things out for us to see. Honestly though, the reefs were so beautiful and the weather and water were perfect - almost no current, so you could just float over this beautiful coral formations and just watch the fish. Alex offered to stop at a beach after the second snorkeling stop, but my husband pointed out that we would rather see the beautiful fish life than lie on the beach, so our second stop was nice and leisurely. In between stops and after we were done, we were offered drinks and delicious fresh melon and pineapple. It truly was a perfect day, and I would HIGHLY recommend Alex, I would go back to him in a heart beat if we are ever on Roatan again.

“Great Trip awesome snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Alex met us at the port and took us on a short ride to West Bay where we got on his boat and went out to 2 snorkeling spots. We saw all kinds of cool fish and coral,after the 2nd snorkeling spot he had fresh watermelon and cold drinks(BEER) Alex spoke to us like we were old friends and made us feel welcomed, he personally had a rough night and didn't get much sleep but still made us feel valued and special, never felt rushed.
We will do this tour next time we are in Roatan
