Snorkeling is a snap
, May 2022
We had a wonderful time with Captain Bob and his crew. Everyone was friendly, professional, attentive, and informative. Smooth sailing and we were able to enjoy food, family, friendship, and a lot of fun.
Great experience!

All aboard!

Very friendly, attentive and helpful staff. Clean boat and great food. Safe and fun water experience.
Madison is a star
, May 2022
Madison was incredible throughout the trip. Once we got to the snorkeling/swimming area, she swam our 2 year old out to a safe floating pad for us so he could s joy the trip as well. When some, she swam back out to get him and bring him back. She also created a list of things for us to do while on the island and we have been knocking them off one by one. She hasn’t missed yet. It was a great day, we saw dolphins and whales as well. The entire crew and trip was awesome. Madison was a standout though. Highly recommend.

Highlight of my Ten Day Trip!
, May 2022
We have been on many snorkel trips in other countries and this was by far the best yet. The boat is great and had “ water toys” for all ages and abilities. The hamburgers were wonderful, grilled on the boat while people played. Captain Bob was very accommodating as all crew members were. Selena was always asking what we needed and was a life guard in the water while we snorkeled. I liked that. Cosmo and Madison and all others whose names I cannot remember, were wonderful. Great excursion: a must for your vacation.
, May 2022
No dolphins no refund. Nice crew but a complete waste of time. They need to remove the word deluxe from their description. Just be up front.
Excellent day!
, May 2022
Captain Bob and crew were great! I learned quite a bit about snorkeling, had fun and saw a lot of fish! Excellent value as cruise included breakfast and lunch!
They were super nice,...
, May 2022
They were super nice, great food and felt very safe. The issue we had was with the fact we saw 3 little fish and I know that is out of their control, but the boat was far out from the coral reefs. Just kinda disappointing with so much money spent. Madison went out of her way with giving us restaurant recommendations and sharing a bit about herself, which I loved. Overall really great, just bummed about the lack of sea life is all.
Great snorkeling cruise!
, May 2022
Diligent and friendly crew. Great burgers and mixed drinks. Captain shared educational information. Favorite was pod of spinner dolphins, and we saw a couple of spins!
The crew was fantastic....

The crew was fantastic. They were friendly, funny and informative. They were knowledgeable and courteous and service was excellent. For those who get motion sickness make sure you take dramamine prior to the trip.
Fun Family Friendly Choice
, Apr 2022
We boarded and were greeted with breakfast which consisted of yogurt, fruit, and 2 pastries, and coffee or juice. We saw dolphins on the way to our snorkeling spot which is near Pele's face in the mountain. They gave us each snorkeling equipment and had noodles, viewing boards for the little ones, tubes to lounge in, a yoga mat, and paddle boards to use. So many fun items for the kids to use. They also have a slide and high jump area from the boat. It's a great snorkeling excursion choice especially for the kids with all the fun extras they offer! This excursion also includes lunch and has a full bar so that is a plus as well!
Racing with the dolphins....

Nice time
, Apr 2022
Super friendly staff, fun activities and good value for money - really enjoyed the whole experience.
Relaxing, Easy, Fun
, Apr 2022
After exploring the island and snorkeling on our own, we enjoyed having this experience organized for us. The staff is friendly, the breakfast and lunch were great, and the staff provided lots of equipment to make the experience fun for all levels of snorkelers and swimmers including snorkels and masks, fins, paddle boards, a water slide and platform jump from the upper deck. Safety is a priority with cheerful life guards keeping us firmly within the allowed swimming areas. There are places on the island where we saw more fish, but those locales aren’t accessible by tour boat. This cruise provides a full, fun experience for young and old.
Great fun in the sun
, Apr 2022
Light breakfast starts your day as boat takes off towards the snorkel site. The upbeat music and friendly staff are great to get you in the right mood. Once you arrive and a quick safety brief you are able to snorkel, swim, paddle, jump, slide or just relax. Lunch was good too. Great way to spend 1/2 day. Truly worth the price
Great snorkeling tour
, Apr 2022
Snorkeling. Boat ride and seeing the Dolphins. I wish I would have seen a hug whale. The 🍔 was delicious.
Worthwhile experience
, Mar 2022

Fun sun and worth every penny
