Steven and Manny were our hosts for the morning snorkeling trip and arrived very promptly to pick us up at 9am. Getting aboard was a little challenging as it was rough at the waters edge but Steven with his great docking skills made it a smooth transition.
They were a fine professional team with great humor, energy and enthusiasm! They were very informative about the island and clearly loved their jobs and were proud of their heritage as natives of Turks and Caicos. Safety instructions were reviewed for the boat and snorkeling stop.
The only changes to the description of the tour is that it should no longer be stated that they dive for the conch. There is now regulation that prohibits diving for the fresh conch without a license. The conch is brought on board prior to the trip and a tasty lunch prepared with a good variety of sandwiches. Iguana Island was interesting in that this is the only island that has resident iguanas in the world.
Recommend this for first time snorkelers and all who love a boat ride surrounded by incredible natural beauty of white sand beaches and ever changing ocean aquamarine colors.
I would have loved to have done one more snorkeling stop if time allowed.
Our hosts were LJ and Big Mike and they took care of the entire group. They picked us up promptly from the beach outside of our hotel and within moments we were off on our adventure. We drove out to a nice spot in the ocean and got some tips on snorkeling before diving in. Everyone just went at their own pace and explored the ocean around the boat. After that we were off to explore the northern most point of the island and found out about how hurricane Donna created that portion of the island back in 1960. We got some pictures of iguanas on their little island in addition to the live conch shell demonstration that you have to see to believe. It was time for lunch back on the boat after our exploring was done, where we were treated to fresh salsa like salads with fresh conch included for those that ate shellfish along with as much rum punch as you wanted. Before we headed back we saw how some of our lighter group were able to glow underwater....amazing. It was a great trip and everyone had an amazing time. The pictures and memories will last forever. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone wanting to have a little adventure on TCI.
Super fun excursion! The captains were a good time, and the others on the catamaran were super friendly and welcoming. How could you not love swimming in that beautiful water!?
Awesome time with my wife. Terrific locals and delicious, well-prepared food.
Manny and LJ did a great job. Weather was stormy great which led to choppy water at the dive site but they kept things upbeat and everyone on the boat had a great time. Diving next to the boat on Iguana Key is very good so take a second dive there.
We had an absolutely great time on our snorkeling cruise. Our two guides were both fun and professional. We had a good amount of snorkeling time, but also some very nice relaxing beach time at Iguana Island and lots of fun on the boat's slide and diving board. I would definitely recommend this group for both value and quality of the experience.
My family of 5 enjoyed our 1/2 day snorkeling trip with Island Vibes. We do wish we spent more than 40 minutes at the 1st stop snorkeling. Then drove off to Iguana Island to enjoy conch conk salad, view Iguanas in their natural environment and enjoy refreshments. My kids asked for the snorkel gear again and before long many others did as well. The 3rd stop was right before drop off close to land. Most guests jumped off the diving board and went down the slide. Music and fun for all. Must do when in Turks and Caicos.
Tour was lots of fun. Boat was clean, crew very friendly! Dropped us off at an Oceanside bar per our request. Iguana island was beautiful, can and #39;t beat the beaches in TCI, just gorgeous. I would recommend Island Vibes.
Big fun, again! This is one of our favorite island retreats and the 1/2 day catamaran snorkeling tour is always a highlight of our stay!
This was my first time snorkeling and they were extremely helpful and very patient with me. We all had a fantastic time. You won't be disappointed!!!!
Fun tour and experience, amazing locations. We got to see the island from the ocean, try conch salad, swim and snorkle around several spots. Mainly for families with young children. Highly recommended.
On time pick-up from the beach right in front of our hotel. We enjoyed each of the stops at beautiful beaches and swimming/ snorkeling spots. Great crew, comfortable boat and fun excursion.
Excellent crew and snorkeling trip. Our whole family enjoyed the trip. One of the highlights of our vacation.
All 9 of us enjoyed it so much!! Your crew were terrific!! We also had children with us and they loved the island and the snorkeling! They included them on everything!! Thank you so much, we will use you again!!
This excursion was the highlight of our week in Turks! We did the afternoon 4-hour tour and it was great! The guides were fun, the snorkeling was pretty, and Iguana Island was a lot of fun to explore! The rum punch was flowing freely once we finished snorkeling, and the water slide and diving board on the top deck were really fun!
Moe and Teven were great... Recommend doing this trip early in the AM and during your first couple of days on the island. Wear lots of sun screen!! The conch salad was delish too!!
This was a very nice excursion. Plenty of fish to see while snorkeling. The only things that need to be improved upon with them is: 1 They need to be more specific with where they pick you up. The told me to meet them at Bight Beach where the Fish Fry is. Had I not wandered to the water, I wouldn't known a boat was picking me up. I was expecting a van or some vehicle. 2 You really only get one opportunity to snorkel... in other words the boat only makes one stop to snorkel. The other stops are to a small island with which you can look for iguanas or go swimming the water isn't clear enough to snorkel but it is beautiful... and the other stop is for anyone who wants to use the water slide or diving board on the boat. 3 I also don't care for the guides diving for a conch to show their guests what it looks like only for them to kill it to make a quick conch salad. I could do without the dixie cup sized sample of salad and spare the conch its life. 4 The guides were great however anytime they tried speaking to the group on boat on the way to the snorkel stop you couldn't hear a word they said between the wind and the boat engine running. Overall though, a decent trip.

The tour was pretty much the same as other snorkel tours in the Caribbean. The guys on the boat were excellent and went the extra mile for all the tour guests. We had a few that had never snorkeled and a couple that could not swim. The crew was patient and got all of them into the water and snorkeling, something I doubt would happen on other cruises. The snorkeling was fine, but there were not any larger fish plenty of smaller ones. The conch ceiveche was excellent and a nice touch. I would recommend the cruise, but gave it three stars because there was nothing exceptional about it.
