We chose this tour to go snorkeling. Unfortunately,conditions were very unsuitable with high waves, choppy water and many jelly fish. These things of course are well out of control of the company. However,what they CAN control is the equipment provided and assistance to go with...More

The folks taking us around were experts at getting us properly trained and ready to snorkel, as easy as it was. The corals we went to were spectacular, and the staff was very friendly.
