Is there a tour that lets you snorkel with sea turtles? Trying to plan a trip for later this year. Around September October, maybe November. Also is Corona beer easy to find?

We are looking for a boat ride on October 31, especially interested in watching the America's Cup practice races. Do you offer anything like that? Saw one of your reviews where the passengers were able to view the practice. We are arriving on Oceania's Sirena about noon on October 30 departing at 5pm on the 31st. Two adults. Also do you have pick up at the cruise pier?
