Torture cruise versus a snorkel cruise!
Samantha_P
, Jun. 2022
The boat was incredibly small with far too many people. The food was horrendous and most people didn’t eat. The water was extremely rough and no effort was mad to find calmer water to snorkeling was terrible. Worse, in a boar of cramped nauseous people instead of taking us back to the docks the stop in the middle of shore and force us to watch the crew do a half baked hula. I’ve been on many many snorkel cruises and this was the worst time I’ve ever had on the islands! Crew was nice, though.

This was an amazing trip! The crew was so energetic and knew how have fun with all the guests including my 7 year old. They were also very kind and considerate when it came to everyone’s comfort level of snorkeling. They never pushed anyone to do anything they didn’t want to do. So helpful.

Good tour

The kids loved the slide! We also saw eagle ray and a turtle snorkeling. The dolphins were great although when we booked it was swimming with dolphins in the wild and on the tour bus was the first time we heard they could no longer do that so that was super disappointing! All in all a good experience.

Best cruse ever, I definitely had a great time and was the best decision for my short vacation. And will do it again again for every time I go there. And by the way the team on the boat were also very friendly. I couldn’t swim but still had fun cruising.

I really enjoyed the Dolphin and You experience. We saw dolphins, a turtle, and even a shark!!! The snorkeling, sliding down the slide into the ocean, and paddle boarding was great. However, my favorite part was watching the crew do the Hula! The food was great as well!

We had a great time on this trip. Energetic crew members kept us entertained throughout the trip. Spotting the dolphins was amazing. Our five year old daughter was scared to get into the water at first and crew member Jeremy really helped to help her calm down and she saw some fish eventually which made her very happy. Overall a memorable five star experience!

The crew was very knowledgeable, fun and helpful!! Captain Danielle was super amazing, very engaging with the audience of her knowledge of the dolphins. She and her crew were fun but made sure everyone was safe!
