Private calm waters to snorkel. There were boats and lots of people around, but never felt crowded. Abundant fish and coral to snorkel for hours. Great to swim. Pool allows even non swimmers to interact w tropical fish. Different decks, delicious fish sandwich and helpful friendly staff. Best day of our vacation.

When on a cruise, booked this excursion and had a wonderful time with my family and our friends and their family. I did not snorkel, but my family did and really enjoyed themselves. I am not one to get in the water much, but did a lot of diving off the diving board and floating in the ocean in a... More

The snorkeling was great, a lot of fish and the swimming noodles made it very easy to enjoy. I was told there were only 30 guests allowed on at a time and was disappointed that although we were on the first boat there were already at least 30 people there and all the lounge chairs were taken. There was a... More

We did this excursion from the Adventure of the Seas with friends. The sea taxi picked us up and took us to the tiki hut platform where we were able to relax and snorkel at leisure. It was a huge plus for me that the snorkelling wasn't guided as it is on previous excursions I've done, there was no pressure... More

This was a fun excursion. The snorkeling overlooked a sunken helicopter, a submarine and a sail boat. We saw some fish but there was no reef or, what I would call typical snorkel viewing, on this tour. It was a great experience non the less and we enjoyed being able to be in the ocean and see just how clear... More

I paid $74.00 for each person to go on this Snorkel tour when I was on The Allure of the Sea cruise. The snorkeling consisted of staff throwing food in the water. The fish that gathered for the food was our snorkeling experience. I fully expected a coral reef with beautiful fish. All I got was a bunch of fish... More

We are sorry the Tiki Hut did not meet your expectations. We try to make sure each and every guest has a relaxing and great time- as you can see from most of our reviews. It sounds like you did not see the sunken artificial reefs that we put there: submarine, helicopter, canons, airplane, sailboat, king Neptune and more. We... More

We recently visited ST. Maarten and had a excursion with the Tiki Hut glass bottom boat. That particular day the weather was cooler and rained off an on. The staff and crew were very friendly and turned what would have been a crappy day in to a great day despite the bad weather. I would highly recommend them.

My wife and I booked this as an excursion from Carnival Crusie ship. We had our 2 young kids with us (2 and 4) and we all enjoyed a very nice relaxing day on the water. We were hesitant about a "floating tiki hut" but it was very large, spacious, and had plenty of chairs for everyone. the kids loved... More

We booked this excursion from our Carnival Cruise. And it was absolutely awesome. You take a boat from the port, in which the crew was fantastic, very informative about the area.The tiki hut was a good size, lots of people comfortably. We paid for the all inclusive tiki hut, which gave us free lunch ( burgers n chips) and all... More
