The crew was amazing and experienced a smooth sailing to Buck Island. We swam in a cove with turtles for about one hour. Saw several species and corals. Great excursion overall. Recommend the crew, boat and destination!

This tour was perfect! We took a quick trip over to the snorkeling location, spending just enough time to see turtles, fish and coral. We didn't feel rushed! The crew, Michael, Tim and Anders were very friendly and professional. We returned, under sail, and enjoyed snacks and abundant drinks. We would do it again!

Really enjoyed the Sunset Dinner Cruise with Captain Mike(?), Heather and Anders. It was an overcast evening, so not much of a sunset, but the cruise was nice and relaxing and it was great to cruise through the harbor. The drinks were plentiful, the food was good, and the service was excellent. Heather and Anders were busy taking care of everyone and making sure your cup wasn't empty, along with taking pictures and making sure everyone had a great time!

The happy hour and sail home was so much fun. The crew (Heather and Anders) worked their tails off the entire cruise, and made it fun.
