We booked after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. The crew were great and one of them dived for a conch and we ate it raw on the beach. We went at the right times but sadly the rays were not to be seen and so although we spent time snorkling we didn't really see much in the way of fish. I did feel a bit let down given the great reviews so maybe we were unlucky.
Also best to double check times - P&O ship stays on Ships time which is an hour difference from Island time!! If you book it is Island time that they book you for.

My review is a little late, but this great excursion can not be forgotten. We took our tour at the end of May and couldn't have been happier. The staff was very professional and the tour was excellent. I saw more fish on this trip than any other snorkel trip that I have been on. And Shark bait, the first mate and snorkel master was excellent. He was even able to bring a nurse shark in for our whole group to explore. What a great time. We would highly recommend this tour and we would look forward to taking this tour a second time if we stop in Grand Turk again.

They are simply the best! We were first timers and they took really good care of us, made us feel comfortable, safe and secure. Our guide was very helpful, he even took pictures for us! Highly recommend them.

My wife and I visited Grand Turk February 2014 with our two young children. We contracted Papa J's to take our family to swim with the Stingrays. The tour was amazing and our two and three year old loved it. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Our guide caught conch out on the reef and brought it back for us all to see and then gave the shell to our children as a gift. We would definitely recommend this tour and company to anyone visiting the island!

Our guides were great. Accommodating, helped us to take photos. Nice guys. Boat ride & scenery were amazing, the snorkeling was pretty good. Possibly the best I've seen (I've done Thailand & Mexico), but previous experiences were just OK, so the bar might be low. Certainly nothing like what I've found online. Tourism just damages coral too much I suppose. But the Grand Wall made the whole thing very interesting. Loved that. I'd definitely recommend Papa J's, we easily developed a very good rapport with our guides.
