Had a fun snorkel trip! Highly recommend this company. You first meet at their little corner store for check-in then we all drove to the commercial marina where we got onto the catamaran. Very knowledgeable crew. They had a lot of knowledge on the fish and sea life, and things to do on the island. The crew was very likable, funny, and down to earth. They have boogie boards and floatation belts available. Bring your own towel. Lower deck is there to store your belongings. The lunch is sandwich and chips- also had some granola bars and nuts and maybe a few other snacky items. Drinks are unlimited after you’ve snorkeled. A lot of people stopped snorkeling early to have lunch and go back in but we waited until snorkel time was over and still had an early lunch at like 11am. We saw several sea turtles, so many beautiful and unique fish, and a white tip shark. We even saw a couple pods of dolphins on our way over and one of the crew members spotted a huge tiger shark on the way in (of course we all missed it). When snorkeling, they let you roam free and could cover an expansive area. One of the crew members even goes out to snorkel and if he finds something of interest, he will let people around know. On our way back in we sailed, they played music, and everyone seemed to be having a great time! Bring some cash to tip at the end or ask for their Venmo!!Such a great experience and well worth it! Sorry, didn’t take any photos!!

Excellent trip. The crew was amazing. We motored out to the reef to snorkel and when we asked if they ever sailed, they said “sure if the conditions are right.” Lo and behold, the conditions were right and we sailed back. What a great treat! Good food, plenty of beverages and knowledgeable, friendly and funny crew! They really appeared to enjoy their jobs. Very helpful for novice snorkelers.

Excellent adventure. We had perfect weather for seeing tons of fish. Their staff were professional and informative, and bent over backwards to make our time with them memorable. We took their catamaran to an off-shore site where they gave us a quick refresher on the equipment and the types of fish we would see. The whole operation was very well organized and any glitches were dealt with quickly and cheerfully. After the snorkeling there were sandwiches and snacks, pop and water, and a bar, for those who wanted something a little more. I would definitely recommend this tour, and plan on taking it again when I return to the islands.

We went on a 4 hour ride and It exceeded our expectations. The three crew members, Captain Will, Captain Sam and Greg were all so well informed and we loved every single story and piece of information we learned from them. Greg knows everything there is to know about fish and every mammal in the water. We did a 4 hour cruise and saw dolphins and went to a reef off the shore and spent an hour snorkeling. Greg knew every fish we saw and would point them out to us... he made sure we were safe and we learned so much about the life under the sea. We cannot recommend them enough! It is probably going to be our favorite part of this trip.

My family decided to be extra safe and splurge on a private catamaran charter for my husband’s birthday.it was worth every penny. The crew was masked and friendly. We were taken to a private bay where we snorkeled for an hour, very calm and lots of fish, even a turtle. Then we had the biggest treat of all, we saw some water spouts indicating whales and went out towards them. We apparently witness a mating ritual with males whales breaching and slapping their fins on the surface wanting to get the female whale’s attention. All in all, we watched about 10 whales for an hour going through this exercise. It was absolutely astonishing! Thanks so much to the crew for letting us witness this unusual event. I highly recommend this private cruise while we wait for a return to normalcy. Every member of our family was comfortable. Thanks to the great crew.
