Wonderful day on the water! We were on The Dive Machine with Brett and they were great hosts. Excellent value and way to spend the day when so many things on the island are closed due to COVID.

We took this trip with our 2 kids aged 10 and 12 and we all loved it. Our captain JT was helpful and attentive and answered all of our questions. Just enough time to not be to much and lose interest. Highly recommended.

Our captain, Junior, was what made the trip most enjoyable. We spent half of our time snorkeling and the other half at a beach.
