Had a great time with Adam and Ed. They were very knowledgeable about the island as well as the snorkeling. Conditions turned out to be great and we saw a bunch of turtles, an octopus, and plenty of fish. Highly recommend snorkeling with SeaRiders

Guides are very, very nice and helpful. We saw over 12 sea turtles, tropical fish, and even a few dolphins! I don't suggest though if you get sea sick! I threw up 3 times! Def take a motion sickness medicine before too!
