I have snorkeled extensively in Belize, so I had high standards for any snorkel excursion. The reefs and Stuart's Diving Cove (contracted with Viator) even exceeded my expectations. It was the best day of our cruise as far as I'm concerned. The reefs were in good shape, very much alive with lots of diverse tropical fish and the dive team let us browze around by ourselves for about 30 minutes at each of 3 dive sites. You could venture off by yourself if you were experienced or stay close to the boat if you weren't. We saw sharks and dolphins, and the team was great to work with, very charming. I highly recommend. Well worth the money.
It was great, the people in the boat very knowledgeable and really nice.
The different sites were owesome and give us enough time to enjoy and is probably the best snorkeling excursion we did.
This excursion was a lot of fun! We were picked up by Stuart Coves' bus and were shuttled to the dive shop which was about a 45 min ride. Got motion sickness on the ride there, tons of tight, curvy roads; make sure you take dramamine before going (for the bus ride and the boat ride). There were 3 stops on the snorkel tour. There were tons of fish to see including bluefins (Dori) and parrot fish (my 9 year old's favorite). Our captain and diving assistant were very helpful. There were 62 riders on this tour which was very crowded, lots of riders had to stand during the ride. Staff were very serious during the shark snorkel stop. Riders had to follow instructions to ensure everyone's safety. Overall had a lot of fun on this tour. Would do it again!
My boyfriend and I had a great time on this trip! We saw plenty of fish and shark. The tour people were very friendly!! We'd never snorkeled before and they helped us with the proper technique. I did get sea sick as it was a very very rough day at sea with a storm coming. Would def do this again!
The snorkeling was great. Small group of a dozen snorkelers and three scuba divers! I really liked the sunken plane from the movie jaws 4 and the shark dive! The guides were very professional and plenty of time to see awesome stuff including a spotted Eagle Ray, a nurse shark and lots of beautiful tropical fish. I'd show photos but we used a one tio=me underwater camera and they're not developed yet! Great trip, highly recommended!
GREAT snorkeling trip! We absolutely loved being able to be in the water with the carribbean reef sharks. It was amazing. The staff at Stutart Cove's was friendly and helpful. The transport from our cruise ship was on time and great, as was teh staff at the Dive shop. The captain and his crew on our snorkeling boat were incredible. :)
Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who plans a trip to Nassau. I cannot wait until my children are a bit older so they can as well.
We were late getting off the cruise ship but the bus waited for us. We had a great time and the kids loved swimming with the sharks. It was the highlight of our trip.
The excursion was good -- we saw plenty of fish and sharks. But, if you are leaving from the cruise ship port be prepared for an hour drive by bus to the actual dive shop/boat location. The boat was fine but not a lot of "fun." No music - No drinks. Good snorkel trip but not a great trip.
