My wife and I went on this tour in early Jan 2017. We were worried a bit how the weather was going to turn out given that it'd been raining all afternoon the day before we were scheduled to go on the tour well, it is wet season. Surprisingly the weather was beautiful out in the outer reef and we had a fantastic time. We did one introductory dive and snorkeling for the other two stops. The water visibility was great and the reef was just beautiful. So much marine life all around you. Snorkeling is great but do consider introductory dives if you haven't done before. This is the perfect sight to do it. Tom was our instructor and he was very patient and very thorough in preparation. Ty is super funny and helpful in explaining the rules just follow his instructions. I highly recommend this tour.
