Snorkeling was fun, just wish it could have been longer than 25 minutes. The stingrays were really neat. So soft! Got to kiss one! Crew (Jake and Alex) were very nice and helpful. Parker the photographer took great pics. Make sure you bring money with you so you can buy the pictures if you want to. Stayed at Starfish point for about 15 minutes but that was plenty of time.

This experience was amazing! Shea was the best guide - so funny, knowledgeable and kind. The horses were all well trained, friendly, and calm. I highly recommend!

It was a lot of fun, my girls loved it and our guide was great and entertaining! We would do it again

Great team on the Miss Anna! Impressive excursion, well-maintained ship! Recommended!
