This was an ok excursion. There was a lot of wasted time to accommodate the diver certification stop and subsequent diver only parts of trip. The snorkeling, once underway, paled in comparison to a previous simple beach snorkeling that was free. Lunch was so/so. Captain and cook/ diver guide were so nice, but other!?! Next time I’ll find and book in own with more discretion! Lot of boat time with little quality snorkeling and crowded as we picked up to extra FM’s on the dock!?!

I do not recommend this tour guide. My wife got too tired while swimming, but the guide was busy entertaining the pair of young chicas and did not notice my wife's difficulties until I got his attention.

Over priced and late! You charged $85, but it was only $45 in airport. Your service required overnight and was late. Airport service was while you wait. I do not recommend this service.

It was a nice trip until I got sick towards the end of the last 3 - 4 days. I'm not sure if it was the water or what I ate and whatever the fruits & vegetables that we ate were washed in.
