Take this excursion for an exciting adventure and fun. The reefs were amazing and quite beautiful. I especially want to recognize Hannah, who saved my GoPro from the bottom in 16-20 feet of water when I knocked it off my mask. What a woman!! Beautiful too. Captain Ron pinpointed the spot where my camera went down, how?!? I don’t know! Thanks to the crew for a memorable event!

The captain and crew were all personable and knowledgeable. The water was very rough and they worked hard to keep us safe and get us out of the water. We enjoyed it very much!

Well worth the trip. Great music, delicious snacks, and open bar all timed perfectly to a setting sun.

A nice experience. Good music, drinks and food and the best sunset.

Perfect, sunset, dolphin safari and snorkeling. The top
