I will consider this a valuable learning experience. I did a lot of research prior to booking, til I was a bit weary. PoM offered the Snuba and Turtle Bay, so I thought this would be the one. Booked online, so no asking how many would be boarding. For me, too many. 100 or more. A 65 Cat should have told me that, but I didn't yet know. The other thing I didn't like was all the "selling", as soon as we were lined up to board, it began and continued...photos, cameras, and more photos. One thing I did like was the wet suit vest and reasoning. Made sense. I was lucky and got one of the few new snorkels with the newer reason valve. I actually went in the water with 3 different masks til I got one that fit right. My fault. I agree with two of the reviews I later saw commenting on too many people and not enough sea turtles or variety of fish. I'm so glad I got to Snuba and glad I had no problems, because I felt the guide did not observe his divers often enough. I've done this once before and it was perfect. But we sign a paper, so... The food was fun--building your burger. Sorry but I also have to be critical of the photography. Just too many people to get meaningful underwater pictures. Awful! My photo before boarding was very good, but 20 bucks! All in all, I personally would not go again with this PoM. But of you like large groups, then this is for you. With so many, no one is vested. And I definitely enjoyed my snorkeling on the N? side of Black Rock more. Sorry, just too big a party!
