We had a good time but thought we were going to snorkel and it is not a snorkel trip- feel like I got tricked - they pulled up to island and said - nothing to see snorkeling here but see you in two hours.

Our tour was amazing and the captain was just wonderful. The water was a little murky for snorkeling but that didn't stop the kids from enjoying it. Thank you and we will definitely be repeat customers on our next trip!
