My wife and I just cruised there on the Carnival Freedom.
These were out excursions, ranked in order of preference.
1 St Thomas - Captain Nautica's snorkeling trip - very good. Love the turtles good variety of fish. Tie with Tortola for #1 cause Tortola was incredible too but had no turtles.
1 Tortola - Snorkeling adventure, basic but incredible snorkeling. Most variety of fish and great conditions.
3 Antigua - Catamaran Sail & Snorkel - very good, also had beautiful beach drop.
4 Bahamas - nice catamaran, good snorkeling, only problem was they were way behind schedule. Bigger ship but liked Antigua ship/people better.
As fas as the Wadadli Cats went -
Boat was great, got a shady spot down in the middle. Water was choppy but it was a nice reef. We saw a lot of fish, which guides got out and fed to bring in. There were items on sale on the boat but they weren't pushy at all about it. Had snacks (cucumber sandwiches or cheese sandwiches) and drinks (coke, punch, rum punch) afterwards. The beach they dropped us on was totally gorgeous... and it was empty. There were only maybe 6 people on the beach (vendors but we didn't even talk to one of them). Really nice for swimming, etc. I tried snorkeling and took too long. Started finding some stuff out on the right side of the cove when they called us all back. Saw wild goats along the hillside there too.
The boat was nice, it had 2 restrooms, lots of shade and deck seating. I was surprised to see jellyfish this time of year but we did have to watch out for them. The jellies weren't super numerous and the largest was probably only 4 inches but still... thought that was a Fall problem. I did ask one of the guides if they were common but got a dismissive answer, 'whatever, if you see big ones swim away'.
