Our guides Dyamin and Lee were perfect. Knowledgable and helpful. We book the 5 hour mangrove lagoon kayak, hike and snorkel trip that includes lunch. We picked the perfect day, the water was calm and clear. Our kayak was lovely, we were giving ecological information that was informative and interesting along the way. We snorkeled with jelly fish on our... More

We booked this tour thru Carnival excursions while on our cruise last week. It was listed as kayak, hike, and snorkel. Being first time kayakers we were a little nervous as to how we would do, so we practiced a bit while everyone was getting their kayaks ready. Once the tour started, we had such a great time. The kayak... More

My sons (18 & 11) and I had an amazing time with Yosh as our guide. Yosh took his time with us because only the four of us at that time and we were new at this. Just some insights: 1. Don't wear flip flops. ( I slipped on a rock, broke the flip flops and stepped on sea urchins)... More

Great half day kayaking through Mangrove Bay out near the sea. We were unguided on our trip. We had lots of fun and experienced the blowhole, hermit crabs, snorkeling, and a great day in general.

This excursion didn't meet my expectations at all. It's simply not worth the money. The kayak trip was short but nice. That's it. The hike was a very short walk (about 5-8 minutes) thru some bushes to a shore where waves make some splashes. There they took us some pics to sell them at the end. Snorkling was terribly bad....

Brenda, Lee, and Michael were fun, insightful, and great. Lots of history and engagement. Brenda even pulled one kayak behind hers so they would not be left out. That is commitment to the customer.

This tour was great for our group of 8. We had tweens and teens in our group & they loved this tour. The kayaking was fantastic! The water wonderfully clear and held many different fish. Before our snorkel, we stopped and saw tons of hermit crabs, and even got to race some of them. Both guides, Liza and Jen O,... More

BF and I did the 5hr snorkel, hike, kayak tour with Jen and it was fantastic ! She was knowledgeable on island history, fish, birds, and the plant life. We'll be requesting her again when we return in Feb. We were also lucky to see Barry the Barracuda swim right under us. I totally recommend this tour for adventurers !
