Crew was great. Music was good. Got to go snorkeling to see some fishes. The snacks was tuna sandwich, chips and salsa, and baggies of chips. Not too much variety but the drinks were great. The crew was always asking what we needed.

It was a great experience from start to finish! The transportation to and from the boat was a nice touch. The entire crew on the cruise was professional. Our guide was really funny and showed us a great time!

Our guides were amazing! We were unfortunately rained out and chose to end our tour 2 hours early but the 2 hours we did spend on the Catamaran were amazing! Would 100% do it again!

We had a blast! The crew was great / very friendly & helpful!!

Fantastic crew, well organized. Loved it! Highly recommend.
