One of the highlights of my trip
Kyle_P, Aug 2023
It was absolutely stunning being able to swim with the sea turtles and seeing all the fish. I went solo at the last minute and they made the process very smooth. They made the atmosphere on the boat amazing with beautiful views and music.

Dolphins and turtles

Great experience! Crew (Captain Ryan, Jamie and Duff) was awesome. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Detour to see the spinner dolphins was an added bonus. Saw some turtles at snorkeling spot. Highly recommend!
I will preface this...
Shelby_S, Aug 2023
I will preface this review by saying the visibility wasn’t the best, but also wasn’t the worst. The staff was kind and made us feel safe. I expected there to be turtles everywhere, guides swimming and showing us, pointing them out and other sea life. In 2 hours, we saw 3 turtles. It’s a very crowded area with several other boats and groups of snorkelers. However, my grievance is that they did have someone swimming in the water with our group, but he did not locate any turtles. I only saw them because other groups on other boats were pointing them out. There were only a few people in the water the whole time, most people gave up trying to find them. I’d definitely recommend doing this trip in the morning when the visibility is usually a bit clearer. Could have just been an off day, but I was a bit disappointed in our guide. They offer a sunset and fireworks trip which I think would be more worth the time and money.

This experience was absolutely amazing! To get so up close and personal to turtles and fish was remarkable. It felt like every which way I turned there was another turtle.

My children love it, great crew, Morgan Sean Ryan, was very helpfull. I wished I could have the option to buy a new snorkling tube mouthpiece, It seems that those get clean, and then get reuse. 😓

We appreciate your suggestion about the snorkeling tube mouthpiece, and we'll certainly consider providing that option in the future.
