It was perfect weather ( go in the am) and everything ran smoothly. The boats were in good condition and the glass bottom was interesting but coral and fish were hard to see. I saw 5 turtles right away which made me happy as that is what I primarily went for. Yes you would see more snorkeling, however I really enjoy kayaking. This is a self guided tour so it is best for experienced kayakers, but not difficult. The guys were helpful and took the kayaks to and from the water. I would do it again!

Unfortunately we showed up a bit late due to power lines falling across the road, but even so the guides got us on to the water quickly and we had an amazing time, seeing coral reefs, fish and a couple of sea turtles. Highly recommended!

My family and I really enjoyed this experience. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys the water and kayaking. We went first first thing in the morning before it got to crowded with other kayaker and paddle boarders.

great experience and wonderful staff/team. would do it again!!

Fun activity. Water was rough but enjoyed the time
