Took this trip with another couple. The four hour trip included dolphin watching, sailing and snorkeling. We did all three. We motored out to the "Dolphins' Playground" and spent quite a while motoring along with the dolphins. Seemed like a long time we did that. Then we moved on to sailing, which we did for maybe 15-20 minutes and then went back to motoring. We then snorkeled for a while in a shallow, grassy area. It was a nice place. No reef, but lots of fish and interesting "micro" things to look at. Then we motored home. We were VERY disappointed that there was practically NO sailing, that we listened to loud rock music for the entire trip. On the good side, the boat was very clean, there were plenty of drinks and snacks, and the equipment was in good shape. The crew was pleasant as well. The only other annoyance was that while we were instructed to be there 15 minutes before the trip was scheduled to begin, the fee collector/owner showed up 20 minutes late and offered the lame excuse he was "on island time." All in all, it was good to get out on the water, and we enjoyed being with our friends. I am not so sure I can recommend this attraction. A lot of money for a lot of motoring! Were I to do it again, I would simply sign up for a snorkel trip and pay a lot less!

Thank you for your helpful review. We are so sorry that you were disappointed in any way with your trip experience. We will try to do a better job at all the details that you mentioned and at explaining to our passengers as to why we are not sailing as much as we would like to on any given day, or any other aspect of our trip. We love to sail and we always sail as much as possible, sometimes 90% of the trip. Sometimes the wind gods do not smile upon us, but then it's usually calmer for snorkeling. Our trips are like a safari, meaning that Mother Nature makes every trip a little different, which usually makes it exciting. We always try to make the best out of whatever the conditions are on that day. Our number one goal every day is to make sure our passengers are happy and have the best experience possible. With your comments in mind, we will work harder to do just that. We hope that we have another opportunity to show you just how great our trips can be.
