The guides were super knowledgeable and very friendly. We felt safe and welcomed on this trip. The water itself was absolutely beautiful on our trip out - at 35ft deep you could see every single rock on the bottom of the ocean floor. We saw 6-8 Sea Turtles in only about an hour of snorkeling and it was truly an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!

We loved our turtle excursion! We got up early to catch the first boat and it was such a good choice. There were only 8 of us on board and we were the only boat in the water. No fighting to see the many turtles! Our team was so excellent, Captain Nate was layed back and fun and the rest of the crew was knowledgeable and told us about all the different fish. We loved it so much, definitely a trip highlight. We’d debated back and forth if we should pay the money for it and we have no regrets.

My husband and I had such a great experience! The staff was great and so friendly. They were well knowledgeable about all the turtles in the area. We went at 7 in the morning and were able to see about 9-10 turtles. The new guy, Lance (I think is his name) did amazing guiding us. I would recommend going to the earlier time before the other boats doing the other tours get out there. Our boat was the only one in the area at the time but later in the afternoon, we could see about 5-6 boats in the same area from our hotel.
