All too many times, excursions from a cruise ship are lacking but that is not the case here. We had Captain Rick and Max. They were fun and informative. We had also bought our own snorkeling gear since we could get vision correction added and we do like to see! Well they helped us with all of our adjustments needed, including moving the snorkel to the other side of our head, we were using it wrong. Thank you for a great excursion and seeing a lot of cool fish, turtles, and shipwreck. Great time and great crew.

These guys are a top notch outfit. Very professional. We had a great time. Had a very fun boat ride out to Turtle cove. Saw several turtles, lots of fish, and a stingray. Then off to shipwreck cove. Got to hang out with Barry the barracuda, saw all kinds of beautiful fish. Hunter and Amber were very helpful and went out of there way to ensure everyone had a great time and felt very safe and comfortable no matter what their skill level was. We had a great time and I would highly recommend this trip.

Just returned from our cruise that included a stop in St. Thomas. For my husband and me, Captain Nautica is a must do excursion!! This was at least our 4th time taking this excursion. We saw a lot of turtles, a shipwreck and all kinds of fish. The crew (Capt. Rick and Amber) is knowledgeable and very helpful, especially if you're a novice at snorkeling. The boat ride to the snorkeling location is just as much fun as the snorkeling itself. I can't say enough good things about the Captain Nautica experience!!

We had a fantastic time! Take the early tour and see the sea turtles and every beautiful fish possible! The crew of 2 is fantastic! Not a tourist trap...this is the real deal! Don't miss it!

We did the mini boat adventure. We booked this excursion through our ship NCL Getaway. After a 15 minute taxi ride to the marina. The staff greeted us and gave a brief safety talk. The boats were pontoon zodiac boats for 2 people. They looked to be taken care of. We followed the leader out and after a 20 minute boat ride arrived at Christmas Cove. Had 1 hour to snorkel. The snorkeling was excellent. Saw all types of marine life. After the hour of snorkeling got back in our boats and headed back. Rum punch was waiting for us along with our taxi to take us back to the ship.
This was one of the best excursions we have done and after 18 cruises we have done a lot of excursions.
