Picked up by a truck with bench seating in back. It was nice to be able to feel the breeze and take in your surroundings on the way.
Lots of waiting once you get to the beach. You get hearded from one area to another. We checked in and we were told our tour was cancelled because of the weather. We were told we couldn't swim with the sharks and Ray's, we had to pick another tour. As an upgrade we were offered the pirate cruise (with no explanation of what it was and being two adults) or speedboats, snuba and snorkeling.
I was really ticked that #1. We weren't told before leaving the hotel. They got us there and gave us no choice. #2. We had specifically chose our original excursion to avoid the speed boats. #3. We saw others at the shark and stingrays place.. (was told later by our sunwing rep that the pirate ship stopped there should we have picked that. But... we were told we couldn't do it because of the weather).
Other than that, the trip was good. I couldn't participate in the snuba because of my anxiety but the guides tried really hard to make me comfortable and try to help. I opted to snorkle and I could see them all snuba below. A photographer snapped pics of everyone posing on chairs and in sunk speed boats. There was lots to see, the water was clear even though it was a windy day. Bring bread with you and the fish will swarm!
Snack on the boat consisted of tostitos and cheese/salsa and drinks. Very hard to eat in the wind!
Speedboats were okay. Wear sunglasses to keep the salt water out of your eyes. You follow a guide in circles and cant break line...but they go an okay speed for a 30hp. Kids cannot drive.
When you get back you are offered pictures, gifts ect and more waiting around.
Overall we had a great day. Just wish I could've participated in the tour I had originally chosen.
