Took the afternoon snorkeling cruise. Nice, small intimate group-just 3 families on the boat which made the cruise relaxing and enjoyable.

Jethro and Roche were awesome! They made sure we all had a great time and were so kind. Captain Jethro gave our toddler an octopus present. Roche was very hospitable. Thank you for making it special!
