We are experienced Snorklers and booked this excursion through Carnival Legend on May 14, 2014. After a 40 minute boat ride, where we were given great information about the country and the area, we arrived on the island and were greeted immediately by knowledgeable staff. The staff is very knowledgeable of the various sea life seen throughout the time in the water. We spent about an hour in the water, which was some of the best snorkeling we have done. This company allows for it's visitors to be sorted by experience, beginner, intermediate, and experienced. This was very helpful because the large tour group could have been entirely too crowded if not for this break down! Keep up with the Snorkle guides because they do a fantastic job of pointing out the various see life! I would highly recommend this company and this excursion and will definitely do it again!

After a lengthy ferry ride (45 minutes approx) we arrived to this little island that was all ours!! Amazing! The biggest conch shells in the water I've ever seen. So peaceful and quiet out there your ears almost hurt! One of the most unique shore tours I've ever been on because it's such a remote island. I really to this day have no idea where we were on the map! After a while you want to get out of the sun though. Local beer and other beverages sold very cheaply. I was with older teen and a 4 year old....both had fun. Snorkeling for all levels all around the island. Nice beach areas and shaded areas.

Recommend for a mixed age-range of family members.

We booked this excursion through our Carnival Cruise on the Freedom and it was absolutely perfect. My only complaint is that we didn't have more time! We arrived at Rendezvous Caye after a 30 min tender ride. The island was small, but GORGEOUS. Only people from the cruise were there at the time. Groups were divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced snorkelers. We went with the advanced group with our guides, Anthony and Clive. They were very informative and told us lots about the reef and the wildlife. After snorkeling for an hour we had another hour to ourselves on the island. Beach mats were provided, and snacks and local beer were available for purchase. Island was IDEAL. Music playing, volleyball, tanning, drinking, it was just a great day!

We just returned from our cruise aboard the Carnival Legend where we did this excursion. It was really great! The water is gorgeous and the reef is amazing. The group was rather large (we opted to go in the intermediate group - probably would do the advanced next time) but we didn't stay huddle with everyone. It is true that there is a guided snorkel, but as soon as that was finished, we went out on our own again. Beach area was very nice with clean restrooms and a little grill area with burgers etc for sale at a reasonable price. Would have loved to have stayed longer! The guide on the ship was obviously very proud of his country and encouraged us all to come back and stay for longer than just an excursion. Would definitely recommend this excursion to all!

We did this excursion a year and a half ago and were determined to repeat the fun. We were not disappointed. The water wasn't quite as clear as it was the last time, but it was clear enough. The crew on the catamaran were the same as the last time we were there. They were most helpful in whatever was needed both in and out of the water. Most likely we will do this again! Our jaunt to Bannister Island was another pleasant experience. They brought us right back to the ship!
