Checking in was a bit of a scramble as there was only one person working to fit all the travelers for snorkeling equipment. They also didn’t have us registered even though we reserved a month beforehand and had the tickets. They also didn’t ask for my email so I don’t think I’ll be getting the GoPro photos (but that’s fine—we brought our own). Other than the rocky start, the whole experience was incredible! Adiva and Charles were our guides and were such a delight to have leading the tour. It was my partner’s and my first time snorkeling which was very easy to learn and do. We were able to see and swim with nurse sharks, turtles, fishes and an abundance of coral. We were unable to snorkel with a manatee but were able to see it from above. Biggest tip is to reapply sunscreen every single time you return onto the boat and to use SPF 50 if possible.

An incredibly knowledgeable and eco-friendly company. From fitting of snorkel equipment, boarding boat, description/name of sea life, tailoring to varied snorkeling levels, preparation of fresh food on board to the final name signing on walls/ceiling of tour “office”…this company had it all! We saw manatee, nurse sharks, sea turtles, sting rays, a variety of fish and corals and even a moray eel!

Greeted with friendly and knowledgeable crew. The trip was non stop of interest! Listening to their fun facts and some serious historical stories. Never saw more beauty than when I snorkeled here. Food was good; loved the conch ceviche the crew prepared. Then, about the time I thought the tour was over, we would move and snorkel in a different spot! Definitely the highlight of my trip.
