Very fun and the staff are very attentive and enjoy what they do. This was my first time going snorkeling in the open ocean and it was a fun experience. It's more fun than the catamaran since you actually drive a speedboat. Me and my brother took turns driving (one to the destination and the other on the way back). The guides are very serious about safety and about having fun. I highly recommend booking this excursion. I was also very grateful to be able to book this as all of the other snorkeling opportunities were booked up. I am glad this experience was even better than my original plan.

We loved this tour!! All our guides were great from the boat ride over to the tour bus with smoothy who shared tons of information and even sang Nevis’s National anthem to us! Pinney beach was beautiful and the included lunch was terrific, served in a beautiful ocean front setting! The return trip was the cherry on top where we were treated to some unexpected stops along the shoreline and our 4 boys were given a chance to jump from the top of the boat! So pleased we went with this tour company - fantastic!

Excellent trip. Loads of fun. The lads are fabulous and very safety conscious. Only difficulty is getting back on boat after snorkelling especially if you are not particularly fit or strong. The guys help you as best they can.

This tour was our family's favorite thing on our trip! The crew was attentive and fun, great food and open bar all day. An excellent value for the cost!

Great service. On time pickup and very informative
