I know the weather wouldn't permit us 2 Go to the actual Reef but to take us to an area with nothing but sand and turtle grass in to feet of water just isn't snorkeling thanks for the boat ride

This event was for 30 + people fitted on a catamaran. Everything took quite a while and the staff was making sure it went smooth given the big number of people. The snorkeling site was unspectacular, but the kids had fun.

Honest captain. Winds was up and seas were choppy. Captain told us too rough to go to reef but could go to bay. Other captains promised reef but then went to bay. Next day went with Starfish to reef
