Great staff, fun experience!

The sandbar was super shallow with coral and sea turtles all around. We snorkelled around the coral, and really appreciated the staff coming along and helping us spot the sea turtles! We also got to SUP and hang out on a larger floating board for snacks and drinks :)

The crew (Jason & Kevin) were helpful knowledgeable and fun. The day was gloomy but it was a warm 78 degrees and water was super warm. First time snorkeling was fun, got to see some beautiful exotic fish, coral reefs, a group of Manta Ray's, and swam with the turtles. Great time!!

Windy, but excellent day on the sandbar.

Great trip to sandbar. Even though it was very windy the team made sure everyone was able to have fun. The boat captain even sat on a board and towed low skilled swimmers around so the they didn’t drift off. All employees were very pleasant and informative. Would recommend Captain Bruce’s boats to all levels

I really enjoyed the relaxed pace, relatively small group and the approachability of the guides. We saw a few turtles, which definitely was the highlight. Plenty of time hanging out in the sandbar swimming, SUPing, etc. highly recommend.

Had an exceptional time on the sandbar with family. They provide lots of floats, SUPs, etc . Ability to swim is not needed unless you want to do the snorkeling bit. They guided me while snorkeling so that I got to see 2 turtles up close.

Amazing experience and amazing staff

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The staff were professional and patient. It was a laid back relaxing time and they made sure everyone felt comfortable and included. My husband and I aren’t the best swimmers and we decided to stay back in the shallow end to snorkel but one of the guys offered us a floating device to hold onto while he swam us through the deep end and I got to swim with the fish, explore the reefs and even spotted a sea turtle. It was truly amazing and special that he did that so we wouldn’t miss out.

We had an amazing time. We travelled with our 2yr old. The Captain Bruce team were so accommodating and friendly. Our little one even got to see a turtle from the boat. They have an abundance of ‘water activities toys”. Highly recommended for parents who want to take turns snorkeling while kid cruizes around on the zayak sea sled.

Awesome Crew and Great Time

Amazing crew, very friendly, knowledgeable, and safe. They had snacks and drinks, snorkel gear, and at the sandbar there were paddle boards and other floaties. I’m not a swimmer at all, but I’d definitely do it again. We brought our own hard seltzers and just enjoyed the water and company. Highly recommended!!!
