We were a group of 9 (2 adults, 5 kids aged 8-15) - and took the 5 hour tour - which we booked ahead of time via email (very good communication with Graham). There were about 15 other people on the tour with us. It was kind of a crummy day to start b/c it rained for about the first 2 hours - but nobody can control the weather! While snorkeling with the turtles, there were many other tour groups around us, but our guide always kept good track of us, so we felt very safe. We saw a stingray and a baby and 2 adult turtles. The turtles were AWESOME! I was worried that the crowds would make it hard to see them - but not so. Whatever our guide was feeding them did the trick because they stayed around for a long time : )
After snorkeling, we took the catamaran to another area and had a delicious, relaxing lunch - where about half of the group did a little more swimming off of the boat. The crew was very welcoming and hospitable - always making sure we were happy ( there was rum punch, beer and soft drinks a plenty from the minute we stepped on the catamaran). I did a lot of research before booking this tour and overall, I'd say it was a very good value for what we got.
The only negative was one lady from another group who had a little too much to drink and kept annoying us and our kids. Since there wasn't much room on the catamaran to move around, we did our best to ignore her and make the most of the trip!

This was the best 5 hours spent, the catamaran is great, and the crew was very friendly. While snorkelling we saw the turtles and the shipwrecks. The unlimited food and drinks top up this activity. I’ll definitely recommend this to anyone.

The captain and his crew were very eager to be sure that everyone was safe and had a great time. Snorkeling and swimming with giant sea turtles was a life experience. The waters are warm and so clear that you can see everything. Stephen provided us with information about the island and the sealife. Don't miss a chance to sail with STILETTO

My mom and I did the 3 hour snorkel cruise - it was a great time. The serve was exceptional, the snorkeling was fun and the rum punch kept flowing.

We took the 5 hour lunch cruise and snorkelling trip. It was fantastic from start to finish. The crew were friendly, entertaining and very attentive and drinks were flowing! Food was great (they cater for vegetarians well) and snorkelling over the ship wrecks and seeing the fish and turtles was an absolutely amazing experience.
