Staff was really nice, managed to get a boat full of tourists in the water for a very satisfying snorkeling excursion, including 2 sea turtle sightings. Also got many good sightings of whales, including a baby whale and mama.

The crew was outstanding with our 9 and 11 year old grandchildren. Their first time snorkeling was the highlight of their vacation

When I booked this I was led to believe it was a “smaller” tour (20-40 ppl max.) there were over 50 people on the tour, too many of you ask me. Crew was knowledgeable and saw some spinner dolphins, and decent snorkeling.More

Capt. Patrick and his entire crew were excellent. We had an afternoon cruise with nearly 30 guests yet every person received personal attention. After the snorkel time, drinks flowed and the buffet was superb.
