This was an amazing experience! The stops are interesting, the marine life is breathtaking, and Randy and Morgan did a wonderful job. The group size was perfect and did not feel overwhelming or crowded. Lunch was also delicious, and both drinks and snacks were provided. I would absolutely do this again and if you’re questioning it, just do it. 100% worth it! They will also promptly share the really cool footage they capture on the Go Pro which is an added bonus. My one tiny critique is that the start time says 9:30am but the departure was actually 10:30am. I’m not sure if this is the standard or if it was a one off. I would’ve preferred to sleep in a bit longer, but this experience was totally worth it!

A great day!!! Captain' Phillip and Djamal were at the top…. Drinks and meals included, the go pro followed us in our aquatic encounters all day. We had the chance to see turtles, sharks, fish of all shapes and colors, a magnificent and enormous manatee, and finally dolphins accompanied us on the way back… to do without hesitation!!

Very fun day. The captain and crew were funny and fun overall. The snorkeling was good. Equipment was good. My favorite was swimming with the sharks. Good people make it for a great trip.

Wow!! Amazing!! Highlight of our trip! My family still talks about this! Manny was an excellent guide! Knowledgeable and sooo helpful with my kids and mother in law!

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! We brought our kids and mother in law along! Whole trip was incredible! We swam w turtles, mantas, and sharks!!
