The crew was fantastic, the captain was top notch, the scenery was awesome. The crew was right on top of everything and extremely friendly.

Money well-spent. Beautiful spot, gorgeous beach, incredible snorkeling, lots of activities to choose from, or perfect spot to do nothing! We also spotted whales on the trips to and from the beach!

I didn't expect much and experienced so much more. The service the performance with great food drinks and music. On the pricey side but worth it
