Very knowledgable, attentive and fun staff! Very professionally run, snorkeling and diving trips are well worth it. Complimentary bottled water and soft drinks on board but sadly, no beer or wine.

We took a snorkel trip with Captain Bob (hope he is fine by the end of the hurricane season). He was very nice with the kids and everyone. Sombrero reef was full of life. We really enjoyed the experience.
