A blast. Definitely worth the money, multiple stops at beautiful places and each one is a different vibe. Franklin was knowledgeable and kind and kept our big group together no problem, 5/5 stars just for him. Everyone on the boat was nice, so easy to talk to people, lunch was great I have no complaints!

Great day! Perfectly organized! Franklin has everything under control! The stops are very different, snorkeling, private island, party island (crazy and cool) and finally the long Bon Baru beach! Pure Caribbean! Absolutely to recommend!

Great trip! Everything perfectly organized! Great fun at every stop! Definitely recommendable!
