I booked this trip a month in advance. The communication was good up until the day of our booking. I was sent a picture of the boat to look for. A different one came to the area we were standing but we didn't get on it as it wasn't what we were told. I received a call from the operator saying they had to change it. We had to wait an extra hour and a different company fulfilled our excursion. The communication should've been sent to me in advance of our time slot.

The ride was very relaxing and calming. The workers were very reassuring & helpful. I would suggest confirming the tour date & time a day before or on the day. All in all I would go again!

We had a wonderful parasailing experience! Captain Marvin and his first mate Smiley Face were very welcoming. They accommodated our pick-up request. The boat was in good condition. They provided clear instructions. The view and flight were amazing! We would definitely book with them again.

We had an AMAZING time on the bioluminescence tour with captain Suga Suga Bear and Michael. We were very fortunate for sunny hot weather (that recharges the plankton), no rain and no moon (so as better to view the effects). There were three stops on the 2-hour tour beginning at starfish point then on to jelly fish point but the highlight was the bio-bay. With calm waters in this extra salty bay, the plankton glow with a bluish light when agitated by motion in the water.

You are provided with a thin stretch onesie to guard against the small annoyance of mini jelly fish (stink is like a mosquito bite-a bit itchy) then get in the shallow dark water with a snorkel and mask. With your head down the effect you see is like something out of the Avatar movie-each breast stroke stimulates thousands of time bluish flashes in the water. WOW! Just take you time and spread out a bit and maybe circle the boat to the darker side for greatest effect. Mesmerizing!

Having been on the island for 5 days doing most everything-this was the best, most memorable experience of our vacation. A MUST do! And be sure to go with Captain Marvin (or sister company Sweet Spot) for their environmental sensibility and fun crew.

Snorkeling trip with 2 stops. Small boat excursion which was fantastic! Polo took great pictures while everyone was enjoying themselves. Leo and Mitchel did a great job getting us everywhere and keep us safe! Great entertainment from the 3 of them!

We did the stingray city tour and it was incredible. We were able to start with snorkeling in one area, boated to the stingrays where we got to hold them and feed them, and then finally boated to the barrier reef for more snorkeling. Leo, Mitchell and Polo were fantastic and so much fun!

How much is parasailing for a tandem with Capt. Marvin and what hotels can you book it at on Grace Bay? We paid 75.00 each and it was well worth it. Enjoy everyone.

This is a well-run outfit. We selected the 3 stop tour (2 snorkel plus Stingray City). The people at the desk and the bus drivers were very friendly and took good care of us. Captain Artis along with JJ and Fred were the crew and they were outstanding. Friendly, helpful, just made the whole time enjoyable. Even got to see Philip the sea turtle. Stingray City was the best.

They will pick you up from anywhere and drop you off. The tour consisted of 2 stops, 1 to swim with stingrays, and 1 out further to see various undersea life. They provide water and fruit punch but no other food. The stingray stop was for about 10-30 minutes and they allow you to feed, hold and even kiss (for 7-yrs good luck) the stingrays. The water here is waist-deep. No danger. The undersea stop was for about 40 minutes and they provided us with snorkeling mask and flippers. They also make sure everyone is safe and watch out for people who are not strong swimmers since the water is 10-20ft deep. We really enjoyed it and the crew of Mitchel, Richard, and Paulo were entertaining. Well worth the money. Would go again. Thanks guys.
