My daughter and I had a great time snorkeling with Laura. She is a very experienced and competent diver and instructor. Because I am 74 years old I had strong reservations that I would be able to have the confidence to snorkel and to feel comfortable using the breathing technique. But much to my surprise I was able to do both! Due to Laura’s very calm and thorough teaching I was able to complete “The Trail” and to see huge varieties of fish and the 600 ton rock reef! It was beautiful and exhilarating. It is an experience I will always remember and I’ll be forever grateful to Laura for giving me this memory. ❤️

Laura was AMAZING! It was our first experience snorkeling and she made everything easy and, most importantly, safe.
She is prepared, professional and very kind.
Suits, snorkels, and fins were all provided, as well as snacks and water.
Even if it rained the day before our tour, we were still able to see a lot of different fish and have a wonderful time.
We had a great experience, if you’re in the area, you should definitely book your snorkeling tour with Laura!

We hired Laura to PADI certify my two sons. She was amazing. They learned a lot and loved diving with her. Laura did a pool session at our house, a beach dive in Lauderdale, and then we finished the open water certification off of my boat at barracuda reef off Fort Lauderdale. The entire experience was 5 stars.

A heartfelt thank you for entrusting me with the care and education of your most cherished treasures- your children. It is a privilege I hold in the highest regard. I am overjoyed to have served as their instructor, developing their essential skills in coral awareness and safe diving practices. Watching their growth and dedication to contributing to a sustainable and responsible approach to diving, thank you for allowing me to be a part of their journey.

We booked this snorkeling event to celebrate our anniversary since it seemed like fun but unfortunately Laura canceled due to whether which is fine. The problem is, she was rude to us through text messages and by phone for no reason. We were flexible and were fine to reschedule but she was rude about that too and never confirmed the rescheduling date. After our vacation was over, we reached out for a refund and again, she was very rude and had a passive aggressive attitude. It also seemed like she was avoiding the call from Expedia which was required our refund. See attached text message response from her and look at her responses to other customers that left a bad review. I am glad the event was cancelled; I can't imagine how she would have treated us in person if she was this terrible before we even met!

I find it fascinating that your assessment of my personality seems so spot on your list, but when it comes to the weather your skill set as assessing is a complete negative number. I am so glad that you never went on my tour either as you already complained about it and never went on it. I can only imagine the horror and insubordinate attitude you'd have out in the water and blame me for everything. Please read my reviews on Travel Boards where only authentic tour guests have left all 5 star reviews. An authentic guest is someone who participates in the tour.

My visit was with Laura. She exceeded my expectations ! It’s been in my bucket list to scuba dive for years. I took a solo trip for my 30th birthday and was really in the fence about scuba diving just because i was so nervous. I called her and she accommodated me immediately with Thorough directions. She was so down to earth, funny, and extremely informative. She made sure i was fully prepared and comfortable, took amazing pics, encouraged me and made it one the funnest moments i have ever enjoyed ! I can’t wait to plan another trip with her one day ! Thank you Laura !

Thank you so much, Missy for coming out to Scuba Dive with me in Palm Beach, Florida. Fulfilling something on your Bucket List such as Scuba Diving brings joy to my heart. The clear calm warm waters of Lake Worth Lagoon make for a great first-time when we saw Sea Horse, Octopus and Sea Stars. Thank you so much for saying that it was one of the funnest moments you have ever enjoyed. If you could see me I am smiling from ear to ear after reading your post. I look forward to seeing you again sometime soon in Riviera Beach or we can start ticking off the many I would love to show you that are as good the bridge. Thank you so much for coming. :-) My pleasure, my purpose and my privilege to be your scuba instructor.

What an incredible experience! Had 2 days of private guided scuba dives so I could finish up my open water certification. Laura was so patient and created a fun & safe learning environment. The location she chose was perfect! We saw amazing sea life (including a seahorse!!) and I was provided multiple underwater photos to commemorate the event. Can’t wait to come back and do it again someday!

Thank you Wendy for coming to south Florida and diving with me at the Blue Heron Bridge. I am so happy for you and you did so well and we saw some great marine life.

Never seen a “master instructor” attack other divers underwater before, until now. Completely dangerous to be around.

If I could rate 0 stars I would. Laura was terrible. From the beginning she had a horrible attitude and yelled at my sister because she wasn’t feeling well. She did not make us feel comfortable or take the time to learn our skill level, and when I got upset with her for yelling at my sister, I called her out and she turned around and screamed at me mentioning something about and white male privilege? She definitely has some social justice issues. When I pay hundreds of dollars for an experience, I expect to be treated with respect and at a higher level, which was not the case at all. A complete was of time and money.

This snorkel tour was the worst experience. We arrived at 730 am. ….. got our gear and then had to wait an hour for addition people , who were late, until we could get started in the water. My husband and I who live in Palm beach had our two 14 yr old grandkids . The operator,, Laurie, was curt and rude. I thought it would be private with the four of us….. NO ! Then she got angry because I texted her our information,… weight, height.etc. She said I should of called her. She accused me of being rude not to call her. ?
Yet, the text I sent her with the correct information, she responded to the day before our snorkel trip. Her attitude was so uncomfortable for our family, we were out of the water and in our car by 10, TWO HOURS BEFORE THE ENDING. . I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND this operator. Of course, she will post some defense, but BELIVE ME…… FIND SOME ONE ELSE! You are going at your own risk! Trust me!

Thanks for your disparaging review. It is so sad a woman like who touts her good manners has to lie to make her point sound valid. You take no responsibility for correcting the glaring mistake in your grandkids weights and shoe sizes, the only text was the one you corrected their shoe sizes thank God. The "alleged other text" I never got and if you could have treated me better than DREK than you would have called. Most people do, I have been doing this over 20 years now and YOU ARE THE FIRST PERSON TO ACT LIKE THIS!. Writing this review is only a reflection of the what's really in your heart as the Bible say, "Out of the heart the mouth speaks." You were barely cooperative and clearly showed that you didn't want to be there as evidenced by your leaving the water after 30 minutes. In addition, I took you grandson out in the lagoon for an additional 30 minutes and you didn't mention that, just all the negative things you could think of and embellish your lies as well. Most of my review are wonderful expressed by wonderful people. Nice people leave nice reviews because they had a great time. Funny you are not nice, and you don't leave a nice review. The two go together. And Every operator at the park, works out of the trunk of their car as there are no concessions there. You said that to be ugly and that is exactly what you are. Have a great rest of the year.

Buyer beware; Laura, the owner, is aggressive, crude, and rude. There are several other companies in the area that do the same thing for cheaper and better! She is not someone that I would recommend anyone ever go out with if you want to have a good time.

We arrived what we thought was early for our tour and that was our first mistake. Apparently we were suppose to be there 2 minutes earlier but we’re never told to be there at that time. Laura immediately had an attitude. My sister was not feeling great and let Laura know. Laura was not happy and yelled at us saying that we should not have come with someone so sick, she had a simple hangover btw, but we could not even get a word in before she was walking away and yelling no refunds for canceled tours! She has some type of complex.

We went out and the entire time she was swimming away from us, I did not feel safe with her in the water and I felt like I was on my own. The reef was great but I saw serval other company’s doing the same thing and they were smiling and laughing and having fun, I just wish I went with one of them.

This was a traumatic experience for me and I am a diver with over 50 dives. Laura is what is wrong with this industry and I would never go on or recommend her or her company to anyone! STAY AWAY!

My experience is all people that are not feeling well end up cancelling their snorkeling. I guess you are the only rare exception. As a Registered Nurse it would be a dereliction of duty to respond as you say. Your Low-rent misogyny is quite evident because no one acts like your description for no reason. READERS please know this person never took our tour.
