Exceeded expectations!
, Sep 2019
Staff super, warm and caring! We had the best experience. Safety issues and customer wellbeing were taken very seriously. Snorkeling was awesome, saw turtles, fish in all the colors of the rainbow and colorful corals. We first-time snorkelers got very personal service when snorkeling. We were very lucky since there were only about 10 guests (max. is 60). Surf was bad that day but otherwise a brilliant day! Modern boat, three light meals/snacks available. My only complaint is that facilities for changing were scarce. I can't think of enough appraising words to describe this day trip. We would definitely take any trip with Tusa Dive again!
excellent experience

I was underwhelmed by the two dives which we did on Hastings Reef. Visibility was restricted and I was surprised at the lack of marine life compared to even the western Caribbean. Lunch was also less than what I expected with only cold foods available. Finally, our third dive was canceled but that was understandable since a crew member's health was in question and we headed back to port earlier than planned.

Oh my goodness! What an awesome day. Great ride to the Reefs, good team on board, two good snorkel stops, nice lunch served, but the second stop was truly like swimming in an aquarium!!! This was everything we had hoped it would be!! Book your excursion with the Tulsa boats via Viator!!
