We stumbled across this boat trip however Sam was amazing and adaptable to what our mixed group wanted to do, snorkeling and sight seeing, we even managed to see Dolphin. Very knowledgeable about the wildlife and sea life. Lovely day.

Captain Sam took myself, my husband and 2 of our friends snorkeling to two different reefs. We had both areas all to ourselves, as Sam knows the waters well and the best places to go. We saw a nurse shark, we followed a sea turtle around a bit, many barracuda, an eel, beautiful coral, and schools of beautiful fish. It... More

Captain Sam offered a great afternoon for my family of 4 (wife and 2 boys ages 13 and 11). We enjoyed snorkeling on a nearby reef and some eco touring on our way back to the dock. Excellent service and knowledge of the area. Highly recommend!

My husband and I shared the sunset cruise with another couple. We all had a delightful evening. We found Captain Sam to be very personable, very knowledgeable of the plant life, wildlife and general information of the area. If you can split the expense with another couple, that's great, but it's worth taking at full price.

Samantha was fabulous she showed us interesting spots on bay side we would have never seen after snorkelling out by the light house. We are planning to... More

She took us snorkeling and did a tour of the area. She took us to a fun place to play in the water! We learned a lot about the bay side.
