It was easy to book. There was a little history that my husband and I enjoyed. There was a ceremony to "park" the boat that was beautiful. There was plenty of instruction for first time snorklers. It was beautiful. The ride out and back was beautiful. We had a pod of dolphins swim with us on our way back. Oh and the snacks were good too!

We did the Captain Cook cruise with snorkeling, and it was AMAZING! Friendly, funny crew, yummy snacks and drinks, and most of all, amazing dolphin “show” and snorkeling!! If I had one constructive criticism, it would be the dock area is crowded with both this company and another, so when the staff tried to talk with us, members of other group were in the way, talking, or just plain confused. Maybe better signage and separate waiting areas for the two companies?

We had a great time learning a little bit about the history of the area in the way to snorkel. Those was my children’s first experience and with the help of the SeaParadise crew, my son faced his fear. The crew was experienced and knowledgeable! Parking can be a bit difficult so if you have trouble call the local number listed for the tour.
