“Best excursion!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Had the best time on the half day excursion with Captain Shawn and First Mate John. The jokes came early and often, the glasses were never empty of "donkey" (the rum punch) and the music was always loud. The trip started off with snorkeling off Grace Bay (near Coral Garden). John speared 3 lobsters and a huge grouper in addition to 2 large conch while we were snorkeling. It was intense to watch him free dive with a spear and come back with one of the largest lobsters I've ever seen. We then heard off to Little Cay and along the way Captain Shawn told us some history of the island. We also searched for "Frank" the elusive sea title that hangs out in the water ways around Little Cay. We had free time to explore the island full of rock iguanas while John and Capt Shawn prepared a BBQ of fresh lobster and grouper with ceviche conch salsa. It was delightfully fresh and light. We ended the trip by diving off the spring board on top and got dropped off in the beach at our hotel. There was a couple on the trip who had been on the excursion before, and after having done it, I know I would definitely go back and recommend it for everyone.

Dear Arslan J,

On behalf of Island Vibes Tours, especially Shaun and John, we appreciate you taking the time to review your half day excursion with us. Fresh caught lobster and grouper grilled on an uninhabited island, sounds too good to be true? Not with our crew! We are delighted to learn that our crew was able to deliver for you, making your day with us the best time in Providenciales.

Sincerely,
Island Vibes Tours Team

“The Highlight Of Our Trip”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Honestly, don't miss it. It's probably the best activity you could to during your stay in T&C. Gino and Spike are entertaining, always in a good mood and funny too. We took the snorkeling half-day trip and here's the schedule :

Day starts with snorkeling northeast of the island
Then on to catching conch with Gino, who's a master swimmer and diver. He'll spot them for you too!
Then it's off to Little Water Cay (Iguana Island) with its beautiful deserted beach for around one hour, while Spike prepares the conch salad
Then it's back to the water : you get to dive from the board located on top of the boat

Worth noting :
1) They come and get you from the beach at your hotel (on Grace Bay), which means you don't have to drive or anything. Just wait at the beach for the boat! That's special and impressive... everyone stares, so swallow your pride and get ready to fall off the boat into the sand! If you're limited physically then getting on and off the boat will be difficult.
2) Conch salad is a great way to taste conch for the first time. We were impressed with its taste and even though we don't normally eat raw food, we were very pleased!
3) The guys at Island Vibes were kind enough to change our reservation because of a cloudy/rain forecast. We appreciated it!

Island Vibes is definitely on the list for our next trip to T&C!

“A boatload of fun”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Captain Tino and first mate John were the best. Even though there was only five of us on board they made us a great party. Great rum punch, great snorkeling, john pulled conch from the ocean floor and made us a fabulous conch salad. Then singing and dancing on the boat after exploring beautiful deserted windswept half moon cay. Dolphins swam along with for a while and we saw whales, big sharks and stingrays. A bargain for $89 a person for a half day. Tino sent us to see a great local musician Quince at Hemingways that night. Perfect.

“A Great Day On The Water”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We went out for the snorkelling and iguana island trip with Spike and Gino. A fun afternoon with an entertaining pair of locals. They showed us how to extract conch from the shell and whipped up a tasty ceviche right in front of us. The trip gives you access to the outer reef and some of the beaches and cays north of Provo that you would not otherwise see.

“Island Vibe Tour/Snorkeling”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you looking for a fantatic snorkeling trip - Island Vibe is the best! The boat is one of the best tours boats I have been on, huge deck, clean, and has 4 loungers on the top deck, also a diving board! The pictures on the web-site are accurate.
Shaun was a blast! Reggae music was playing from the moment they picked us up on our beach at our hotel (a nice perk that you don't have to go to a marina).
Nice tour of the island, even JoJo followed for about 10mins.
We went to a nice reef and snokeled, than over to a beautiful beach area where we could swim, walk and just hang out on the boat.
We did have a great group of adults with us.
The rum was flowing and we danced on the deck!
I would highly recommend Island Vibe!
Best if not a windy day!
