I loved this trip! Our instructors Saphire and Mariah were friendly, knowledgeable, and adorable little smiling mermaids ;).

Hello LuwinScuba. Thank you so much for your comprehensive review of your tour with us yesterday. I’m sorry that we couldn't supply you with a weight belt to help you duck dive with the seals. Most of our snorkelers aren't as experienced as you and to hand out weights to everyone would be quite risky and I imagine dangerous on... More

Hi Sharyn T (and Madden) Thanks for your review and for the message about not supporting those attractions using captive dolphins. If people just knew the process involved in capturing and training dolphins in most cases they wouldn't go to visit them. Its so much more rewarding to experience dolphins in the wild in their own natural habitat. Young Madden... More
