“Amazing and captain Hans has patience.”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This morning we went out and it was perfect weather. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! All the gear is supplied for no charge!!! This trip was well worth it. The only thing is one passenger decided to walk around and not return so we had to bake in the sun until he returned 45 minutes late.... Needless to say everyone was upset but the captain still made sure we could still see the wildlife. The staff was very patient through the time this douche bag being gone. Captain Hans and first mate john were amazing and made the trip.

“Best day ever!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

These people really cater to you. The ride in the boat was wonderful I was in the shade the whole time. The Captain gave us a lot of interesting information on our boat ride to our snorkeling destination. I have been battling a year long illness and was concerned that this maybe too much for me but it wasn't. You can come and go from the boat as needed so if I got tired I rested or got too hot I rinsed off in the shower. The staff was friendly and really liked what they do. This is great for kids too. We will be back for sure! They stay with you the whole time when some will just drop you off. Worth doing folks!

“Great tour with great staff wish the water was more clear.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The staff and owners were friendly and a delight to go on the tour with. At the first spot it was too rough to go in so we were taken to a second spot. The second spot was great we were able to find star fish, fighting conch, and sand dollars! The tour of the island was fun as well we got to experience and see some great history! On the way back we saw a pod of dolphins with a baby in toe. When we come back I will definatly go again! Recommended for any one who wants a nice day out with friends or family.

“Amazing spots and staff”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The captain was really nice and took us to amazing spots, such as Egmont beach. The boat is nice and clean and it has everything you could need. The staff are generous and will do anything to save the environment. Today we saw a plastic bag in the ocean and we turned around, just to pick it up. I recommend this place a lot
