The crew of our sailboat was the best , the food was good and the snorkeling was outstanding. The crew made sure that everyone was safe while out in the water and Victor saved my wife from a jellyfish.

We did not see turtles or barracuda here, but we did see some beautiful fish. The coral has been destroyed by a hurricane which will take years for it to return to its full beauty. The current was quite strong which made the snorkeling a bit difficult for those who are not strong swimmers and those who never snorkeled were encouraged to NOT try to snorkel on that day. Our crew was fantastic and we had lunch right on the catamaran once we came to shore! Hot food with garlic bread, fish, chicken, rice, and steamed veggies. It was an excellent buffet ! The open bar was very nice and of course, rum punch! They also had dessert cakes! We took a swim at the beach where we stopped for lunch and enjoyed the water. The equipment was very good and once again, the crew was wonderful. Captain George was very knowledgeable about the area and told me a lot about Montserrat, the volcanic island which is in view from Antigua. Daniel was our snorkel guide and if the current wasn't so strong, we would have enjoyed it a bit more. But no one is at fault for the current! My daughter and I enjoyed this trip.

A bit chaotic with the pick up point, given as Lydia's on the beach, Jolly beach, but is inside a private beach resort and security weren't too keen to let us in. Then the boat arrived a long way along the beach from Lydia's. Otherwise a good crew, good food and great view of the reef.
