these guys are great, i live on the island now so I go out with them as often as I can. I've never had a question they couldn't answer, they are helpful and they run a fun tour to some great sites.

Great experience even though we didn’t see any Manta Rays! That was very disappointing but the crew was very friendly and the experience was fun. We still got to see lots of fish!

The boat and stuff were great. My 16 yr. old grandson was very happy with the experience. The water was choppy but that is mother nature. The crew was very good about the safety of the snorkelers and divers.More
