We did the all day Buck Island snorkel tour. Captain Mike was great and First Mate Gabrielle was outstanding. Super helpful. I was worried all day trip would be too long, but it was perfect

My husband and I are not very strong swimmers. Is it possible to take the full day trip to buck Island and not partake in the snorkelling but spend that time on turtle beach. We are planning a trip to St. Croix this May.

I'm a snorkeler as well as a photographer. Are the conditions where I can bring a small photography bag with my good equipment off the boat? Do I have to worry about it getting stolen or should I not bring it at all? Are there any specific items we need to bring ie, water, towel, etc?
