Pros: crew was nice and seemed to enjoy their jobs Cons: within moments of pulling out of the harbor the crew informed us that the visibility was poor because the water was rough and we wouldn’t be able to snorkel. They tried to upsell us to add the upgraded ticket but we consciously didn’t buy that in the first place as jumping off trampolines into the ocean isn’t what we wanted to do— we wanted to snorkel. It felt like a bit of a bait and switch as they clearly knew it wasn’t good snorkeling conditions but didn’t tell us before we departed — when we could have chosen to get off the boat and request a refund. (They noted that the earlier tours were experiencing similar conditions and most of the other boats had cancelled). All in all not ideal / a great experience — would have been great if they had been forthright with information instead of just trying to make an extra buck. Wouldn’t recommend. Next time we will book with one of the companies that puts their guests first
