Thank you to Captain Kaleel (spelling?). We had great time. Saw schools of squids , parrot fish, Angel fish, puffer fish and an assortment of others. Drinks flowed freely and a great time was had by all.

Captain and crew were fantastic- very safe and thorough but also fun! Great snorkeling and cliff-jumping, among other things. These guys really know what they're doing and we had a blast. It was the best thing we did on Bermuda.
