Absolutely perfect day! I was definitely out of my comfort zone, but the folks on this tour made me feel at ease. Nice facilities on the boat and a great staff.

A very pleasant day spent aboard a well appointed, beautiful boat. The glass bottomed boat tour was excellent - Troy was very knowledgeable and we say turtles and giant clams in addition to the corals. The Low Isles are just beautiful and it was a fantastic experience!
