Best part of our trip! Captain Bob and his Mate Gina make you feel like you are on a tropical journey with old friends. They made us feel very comfortable and welcome. It also felt like we were on our private luxury boat, but without worrying about steering! Snorkeling the caves at Norman Island was a fantastic experience and totally... More
