I enjoyed the total experience of this tour even if the corals aren’t that amazing as compared to my other snorkeling experiences. But the tour isn’t just snorkeling.. there’s party while we are sailing, great foods, drinks and music, I love the floating mat and the views.

My first time snorkeling and I will always remember this memory! 11/10 please book with them if you want to have a good time. Very educational and safe I will be back!

Great crew, lots of fish, snacks hit the spot and I have a new favorite rum drink. Had a great time.

It was great. And the guides helped us going through the waterslides and climbing up

Ask for the “Double A”’ tour guides. They were the best!
