Form beginning to end this was the best snorkeling trip. Basil was excellent. We noticed other snorkeling excursions in larger boats that had 30 to 40 people. Our boat had 6 so it felt private and not rushed. We got to tour the reefs, sunken...More

Found Blue Hole Watersports online and we are so glad we did! Captain Basil was wonderfully informative about the area while being patient and helpful with everyone, regardless of our skill level. The fish and coral were amazing, as was the service!
