Great personal service! Captain Jeff was very knowledgeable about explaining the fish and other wildlife and plants we would be seeing. Beautiful day and great conversation with Trish and Jeff. Plan to book again next year.

Personalized attention is easy when we have guests like you. No kidding, our day with your guys was about as good as it gets. Plenty to see and do and there never was a hint of needing to get back to the dock. Thank you!!!

Thank you!! We especially appreciate your commenting on our pricing. We work hard to make these trips happen and when our guests tell us that we are worth every penny, it makes our day!

We love small groups too. Your trip was especially nice because we were treated to such great conditions. Our best customers, like yourselves are the ones who truly know the difference between a quality reef experience trip and a cheap "cattle boat" beer buzz.

My daughter and I went out with Namaste on June 28th, and we had a blast. They keep the groups small, incorporate real education on the reef, serve fresh food, and they're just really friendly thoughtful people. The reef is thick with fish, and our...More
