Went with my teenage son and we both loved it. Hour and a half in the water at a great location. Crew were fantastic and made the experience even more enjoyable. Swam with turtles had a blast.

The perfect outing for novices! We loved the quick ride out to the Low Isles that gave us plenty of time to snorkel. The crew provided excellent pointers, offered pool noodles (take one!) to help stay afloat and reduce fatigue. There's plenty to see right...More
