We did the all day trip. The crew was good and had a lot of history to share of the area. Ran very professionally. Would recommend for either trip. Buck Island is worth it. Rum punch is a little stout. May have had to many. Equipment is used but in decent shape.

Smooth as silk. Staff is professional and very upbeat. 1/2 day trip great, allowing from time to take it all in, and still have time for another adventure. Great snorkeling.

A most enjoyable and educational adventure! Hats off to the staff and crew on this attraction, Capt. Mike, Rachelle, and the entire crew were awsome, they were very knowledgeable, friendly, and had our comfort and safety in mind at all times. Buck Island beach was a great experience as well as educational as they stop for a pre-snorkel warm up... More

Departed on time. Pleasant and safe sail out to the island. Great safety instructions, friendly and knowledgeable crew. BBQ on the beach after snorkeling was nice, hot dogs, burgers and grilled fish. Rum Punch kept flowing, soft versions also available. Definitely recommended.

Had a great time with the crew Rudy and Gabe. The boat ride over to Buck Island was fun. The snorkel tour was great. We stopped after the tour on a secluded part of the island and was served burgers/hot dogs and fish. Highly recommended

Had alot of fun with Captain Rudy and First Mate Adam! They make excellent food and even better Rum Punch! Enjoyed the beach snorkeling more than the reef tho. Wished we could have done another dive but still a great day!
