We had a fantastic time with the combination of kayaking, snorkeling and also a small hike to Red Point. Our guide Ronnie was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about marine life, biology and the mangroves. We really enjoyed the small group of 8 versus 30 plus on the cruise ship. The small group was like a private tour. We were able to get to Red Point and take tons of photos of the waves crashing on the red rocks and making these wonderful huge splashes before the big cruise ship tour got there. The marine life was amazing to see in the roots of the mangroves and also at the sunken boat with a lot of fish resting there. The frozen chocolates was a special treat from Ronnie that we needed for a great source of energy for the kayak going back. Overall, I would recommend this trip if you prefer the smaller group and like a sense of adventure of kayaking to an island, hiking and seeing nature, snorkeling and kayaking back.

We had a wonderful time on this excursion, I had my husband and three adult children with me, and we all had so much fun. The staff was great, and the two guides were awesome. I would suggest this excursion to my family and friends!

Great excursion. Jason, our guide, was wonderful. My 10-year old daughter had a million questions, and he was happy to answer all of them. There was a strong current, so the kayaking was harder than I expected, as was the snorkeling. We didn't see too much snorkeling but did find one ray and some fish. The hike was beautiful, and the crabs and blow hole were a big hit. I would definitely recommend this excursion.

Great time. We had a small group so really got to experience everything up close and personal. Guide Jai was great especially with my 12 year old son. The snorkeling was fantastic and a great first time experience for my kids and BF. Plan to do it again next year with my oldest daughter and her husband

Great Tour and great guides. We were so happy we booked separate from the cruise ships. We had a group of 12 and the cruise ship group came in after us with a group of 40.

A great experience. The personnel were very accommodating and cared about what they were dong and the participant experience. The history the island and the stories about the wildlife made the trip interesting. Jake, our guide, was fantastic! He was personable, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He made sure everyone felt confident and comfortable and that we learned some interesting background about the wildlife, geography and history of the area. Couldn't ask for a better guide!

This was one of our favorite excursions on the entire cruise. Learning about the Mangrove trees was fascinating. Kayaking and snorkeling were well worth it; we even saw and got some pictures of a juvenile Lemon Shark in the lagoon. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the environment and made the trip very fun. I would do this trip again!

Because of the time difference between the ship and the land, we ran almost an hour late for our tour. However, our wonderful guide, Alexander, gave us a private and personal snorkel and kayak tour. He was terrific and we would definately book privately with him in the future!

great trip and great team- travis was wonderful. we really enjoyed all parts pf the trip- the kayaking, the hiking, and the snorkeling. we could have had one huge problem if we would have taken the late itinerary- like we planned on the beggining.there's no way we could have been on the ship on time. so it's a huge mistake taking the afternoon excursion (we would have finished by 16:10- not enough time to be on board at 16:30 -the last time to return the ship). besides that- great great experience !

We had so much fun on our Kayaking tour, and our guide was awesome. We loved the snorkeling opportunity in the shallow water and even got to see a string ray.

Getting a taxi took us 20 minutes and 25 minutes to get there, so allow enough time if leaving from a cruise ship.
Michael and Richard were great guides! Very informative and willing to answer any questions.
I wish there would have been some place to test the mask out because mine had a smallannoying leak.
The hike was well worth it, we saw a lot of sea life in the tide pools.

They were very accommodating. The ship let us off late and they easily rescheduled us to the afternoon time or would have refunded us the cost. We really enjoyed the entire tour. Very fun. For some reason the water wasn't as clear as it normally was and we thought the coral would have been more colorful. The tour guide was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. She and they were very helpful in that we lost a pair of shoes on the island while snorkeling. She tried hard to find them. They gave us a pair of shoes to wear when we left. They found them later and mailed them back to us at no cost to us. Top notch customer service.

The best thing about this trip was that we didn't book it on the ship. Then have to stand around waiting for everyone to get off the ship etc. we got off the ship got a taxi which was $9 each. There was a big group going from the ship. Our group was just us. So very one on one.

It could have been an easy paddle but it turned into a race so I couldn't really enjoy the surrounding areas
