This was a great trip! Very enjoyable and exciting! Guides were fun and Very helpful! I could not have gotten out of the water and back on the boat without their strength and encouragement!

It was a great experience, we have been snorkeling for as long as we wanted to, we were tired prior to them asking us to come back on board, music was great, sites were great!

It was a beautiful day, the guides were friendly and helpful and the pigs were so cute. It was nice that there were little ones we could hold.
