Fun times with Living Ocean Tours
Latina_C, Mar 2023
This experience was absolutely amazing. My family and I enjoyed it so much. The crew (CJ, Abe, Chris, Matt, etc.) are all knowledgeable, patient, and extremely fun and helpful. As a 1st timer with a child under 10 they all guided us and made the experience easy and enjoyable.
Such a great experience!
Jessica_A, Mar 2023
So fun! Totally professional, the guides were awesome and informative. Great for individuals, families, the inexperienced and the experienced. Don’t miss out!
Take anti nausea meds!
Christa_J, Mar 2023
My husband and I had a great time snorkeling with the sea turtles. There were also a lot of other colorful fish to see. The entire crew were great! A little piece of advice would be to take some anti nausea medication before you get on the boat. The company says this but very obviously a lot of people don’t do it. I work in an ER and I’ve never seen that many people throw up.
Great snorkel experience
Melissa_J, Mar 2023
Amazing experience !! At first I was hesitant to jump in the water and to let go of the floating device they placed on the ocean but after few minutes I felt more confident and started making my way to where I was suppose to b . I was able to see multiple turtles and lots of fish. It was very exciting to see these amazing creatures swim very closed by me. They came up to the surface multiple times so I was able to see them just few feet from me. I am not a strong swimmer but the guides were very attentive of all of us especially the ones that didn’t feel confident in the water like myself. We had drinks and snacks offered to us. The equipment was sanitized and the boat was clean and clutter free. We had to take our shoes off before we got inside the boat. Instructions were crystal clear and they had many buckets in case any of us got sea sick. The crew were super nice and friendly. I would definitely do this again.
Two thumbs up 🌞🌞

Big floating blue mat put into the water and the team were in the water on boards at all times… Sophia was EXCELLENT friendly and very bubbly… Loved this trip as we dont see turtles in Ireland and to see sooo many up close was such a memorable occasion… Thank you

There were so many turtles. The turtles come very close to you and are the best to see right at the surface. The crew did a great job taking care of us.
Most amazing tour
Ron_L, Mar 2023
I was a little nervous but it was so amazing. All the team was amazing. They are always checking in if you are ok or need anything. Go above and beyond. I wanted to go back but only have a few days left. They even took us to look for whales and we saw a couple. Great Team. A+ adventure.

Great tour for beginners and experienced snorkeler
Amanda_J, Mar 2023
Took my 9 yr old snorkeling and we had such an amazing time. I have lots of experience snorkeling but it was my kids first time. All the guides were professional, organized, super friendly and fun. They were able to tell us what species of fish and turtles we were looking at, which my kid really enjoyed. The vibe was perfect! I would absolutely recommend them for anyone looking to see tons of turtles and fish!
Priscilla_V, Mar 2023
It was a great time, saw a good amount of turtles and there were snacks! The crew was super nice especially Steve the sea urchin.
