So was our guy Jake, the blonde girl who likes Nathaniel Rateliff, our amazing bartender, our seasick girl Robin and the rest of the crew! Truly some of the most helpful, sweetest, knowledgeable people we could have been around. Thank you guys for adding to a wonderful honeymoon experience!!

This was a fantastic adventure. I also liked that we were supporting research in the ticket cost. The captain (Captain T) and crew were outstanding. We were able to go to do three places of snorkeling. The caldera site with lots of fish, a blue water swim and then closer to shore where the turtles were. Each site felt safe with 3 lifeguard personal outlining the snorkeling area. Getting in and out of the water was simple even for those with new knees and new hips. Spinner dolphins passed by as an added bonus. The breakfast was unexpected and nice. The lunch was cooked right on the boat. The philosophy of stewardship to the environment was evident.

Ottimo tour, il personale è stato molto gentile e ci hanno dato un sacco di informazioni sul luogo, sulla conservazione naturale della zona e sulla fauna e flora che abbiamo visto durante lo snorkeling. Ottimo cibo. Uniche note sono che non mi sembrava necessaria la maglietta protettiva a maniche lunghe (volendo ti forniscono anche una muta a maniche corte per circa 10 euro) e che non ci hanno portato a fare snorkeling a turtle town, probabilmente mi sono perso la motivazione ma il tempo era brutto e piovigginava, immagino per quello)
