Simply perfect day. Adults, 12 year old and, 7 year old all had a blast. The guide was a talented instructor, comedian/performer, and incredibly thoughtful person. Thank you to everyone who made the experience possible.

We were luckily aboard Boat 4 and the entire crew was amazing. Dante is a 'dreamboat' himself and his positive energy is infectious. We enjoyed all the activities to the fullest and our cheeks were sore from smiling all day. The private beach stop was a highlight for us and allowed our group to relax, swim and explore the adorable hidden treasure. Lunch was yummy, the open bar much appreciated and the happy vibe of the crew made for a perfect excursion.
