I booked a 2 bottle dive and was assumed to come around 7.30 AM to prepare for the dive. I arrived in time - closed doors - After waiting for almost 1h the person who was responsible for the booking arrived telling me there was no captain and I had to reschedule my dive. I had given my cellphone number,... More

This excursion was an incredible water experience. Not only were the waters beautiful but the crew of the Blue Bubbles center made certain everyone on the boat was included in the festivities. We took a ride out into waters that were not crowded by other tour groups. We snorkeled - even those who had never snorkeled before felt comfortable and... More

We said ok and off we went to the shop. It was... More

Signed up for the Reggae and Beach Party. Bevin took care of us all day. Food was surprisingly very, very good! Great experience. Rum punch came Regular, Wheelchair, Coma, and "Get the coroner". Pace yourself! Beach and location were fantastic.

I highly recommend this tour. Eight of us rented 2 jeeps with Bobby as our tour guide. He was fantastic! Went all over the island-French & Dutch. He had a great attitude and allowed us to plan our own schedule. Thanks Bobby!!!

I went on the 4-hour airport trip with Blue Bubbles with my boyfriend. We enjoyed it a lot! Blue Bubbles has a very comfortable boat to take you on the snorkel trip. We first stopped at Little Bay where there are millions of fish! The crew took some bread with them to feed the fish and they all come straight... More

Arranged the 4 hr snorkeling trip from the tours desk at the cruise port. $3 per person ride took us to their downtown office. Trip departed from the pier close to it. Capt Rafael, Jeff and Kino were a lot of fun and run a safe operation. They were especially good with the new snorkelers in our group and the... More

We arrived early registering with Sky who processed us giving tips of all of the best shopping near their dive shop while we waited. On board, she made all the guests feel comfortable. During the snorkeling trip, she always kept a boogie board ready to help. Another swimmer was having trouble being comfortable in the water, so she calmly approached... More
