The guides Cpt Adam and Ed were excellent. In the first half hour we encountered spinner dolphins, huge manta rays and sea turtles. Then saw them altogether in one multi species mega pod! The lunch was great too, thanks guys!

We had a fabulous time, our first time snorkeling. Julie, Elijah and Chris were awesome. They were fun, informative, gave us a great experience and kept us safe. We got to swim with numerous sea turtles, fish and even a ray. Highly recommend!
