Now let me start by saying that I am not the greatest swimmer and last time I went snorkeling it wasn't the greatest time as I had a small panic attack and had to get out early. Also I had never kayaked before. Now, that...More

Could not be more pleased with this tour. Our guide Barry was very knowledgeable about where to do the best kayaking and snorkeling. He was even patient with us after showing up late (totally our fault as we got lost). The area around the put-in...More

We had an amazing kayak trip! We saw reef sharks, oh so many turtles, and humpbacks. We paddled out pretty far for whales, but actually the best whale interactions were when we were heading back, right beside the shoreline. We were about 200 m from...More

A frustrating experience, due in large part to the incompetence of the company. Our tour was overbooked, with the last couple arriving right at 11, when we were scheduled to enter the water. They were accommodated to the inconvenience of the other 12 of us,...More
