Hard to find. Just a small sign on a tree where their check in desk is located. I had even emailed them earlier for more detailed directions and I still ended up wandering around the Sheraton and was therefore late to check in. Our Captain, Mike, was very knowledgeable, but made me uncomfortable by how often he was on his phone while steering. I also asked for pointers with the snorkeling equipment and he looked at me like I was from another planet. We never felt rushed and they provided us with plenty of food and beverages. We saw dolphins and a couple people saw a whale.
