Children 3 years old and up are welcome as long as they are comfortable in the water and are able to float quietly. Our tours are all-inclusive, no hidden fees, or additional charges for snorkeling gear rental, parking, etc. It's all included!. Picture packages are available on every tour. Thanks for looking!
