Fantastic day! I would recommend this - not for smaller children. A lot of swimming and activity. The crew was fabulous friendly and very up beat! The boat was spotless and the crew constantly mopped the floors and kept everything immaculate. There was a photographer on board - were able to view and buy pictures after if you wanted to. Fresh sandwiches were served along with drinks no alcohol until after snorkeling.

My wife and I did this excursion on our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time! The whole trip was a lot of fun from the drinks and music on the boat ride to the snorkeling and sharks and sting rays. One crew member stood out to us, Andre. He was always helpful and even took many good pictures of us apart from the crowd. We had a blast and would definitely recommend this trip!
