My 14 year old daughter had her butt grabbed by a crew member during snorkelling, and other women did too. Enough said.

The tour started out great because my wife was missing our puppies and the owner had a beagle named Donna and he let Donna come on the boat while we were waiting for the rest of the guests to arrive and that really made her feel comfortable. When everybody arrived we took off on about a 45 minute boat ride... More

This is one huge catamaran ! Our unique group of 46 boarded for an early evening sail and sunset viewing. The crew was superb and saw to it that everyone on board was having a good time. Appropriate music, freshly prepared snacks and ample drinks were part of the cruise adventure. Fair winds, clear skies and a beautiful sunset made... More

I have been in better snorkeling trips for sure but overall this place is clean and safe. I have read other reviews and wonder if the trips are different because we had a few families on the boat. Perhaps one person drinking more than others. The sea was really rough and they did their best to make everyone comfortable. The... More

I will start off with saying that the only good thing that came from this was the open bar the whole time. The beer was cold and the liquor drinks were flowing. However, the snorkeling experience was something that I have never experienced before. Mind you, I have been on plenty of cruises like this. They require you to wear... More
