The crew and staff were excellent! It was great for everyone in our party, from adults to teenagers to a 7 year old! The dive masters were attentive and extremely helpful and very aware of everyone in the water. It was great!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2010

4 star rating: Recommended March 2011

No breakfast as stated on reservation......tour was okay, murky waters and no beach...

3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

A great deal considering the activities included. Food and Pina Coladas/Alcohol were Not exceptional but decent. Felt safe the entire time. The biggest and only letdown was the local tour operator's policy to call one day before bc spaces are based upon availability. This was a prepaid booking!!!

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2014

The boat trip is on a nice catamaran and the crew is awesome and entertaining. The reason for 3 stars is due to the lack of visibility at snorkel spot and things to see.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2012

Whole excursion was no where near 7 hrs.... If you snorkeled you were only out there for maybe 15-20 min at most...if you scuba dives it was the same.....not even worth putting on the equipment. Then we were dropped off on the island for a short stay...no sooner did they drop off the last motor boat full they were shuffling us back to the big boat. The lunch was decent... sandwiches, fruit and potato salad. We left the Marina about 11am and were back by 4pm the latest. To me it was NOT worth the money at all. Really the only plus was the guys on the boat were friendly and some funny....
