    Everything was as described and more. Only thing not described was that they stopped at caye caulker 2 times...once to order lunch (at your own expense) and once to eat the lunch. All this makes trip longer..

    Great adventure on the water despite the choppy water and rain everyone had a great time. We will definitely do this again.

    Planned this before we left on the cruise. Left out the shark part to my wife. My wife does not like snorkeling and was not thrilled about the shark part (nurse sharks). When we got back the first thing she said was "That was great, I would definitely do it again. The whole team on the boat made it very enjoyable.

    I was a little worried not taking a ship sponsored excursion, BUT, this excursion was fantastic. Easy to get to, awesome staff. Stacy was the lead tour host and was so knowledgeable about the sealife and shared so much about the Belize culture and area. the boat crew was very helpful, prepared fresh pineapple and drinks, helped with snorkeling and getting on and off boat. Really enjoyed seeing the sealife, turtles, nurse sharkes and even got to see some dolphins and so much more. Lunch was not provided but was at a nice little restaurant, Fantasy, right on the shore and was very good. My group loved this excursion. Great host and crew.

    We had a fabulous time on this trip. Omar facilitated our trip and was always there for questions and information a board the boat. Alex our captain did a great job, he was never distracted and kept us all safe. This is such a great trip. Sting rays, Nurse sharks, plenty of fish and the coral is prestine. I even saw a Spotted eagle ray. Cay Caulker is also a great little island for our lunch.

    The initial snorkeling was kind of frustrating due to heaving currents that day and guides working hard to keep us all together. Water, Coral and Fish were spectacular. We then moved to the area with the Sharks and Sting Rays. Experience of a lifetime and I can't find words to describe the thrill. We then had a bonus trip over to feed some Tarpon fish, very cool. Ended with a nice lunch on the beach.

    We had a GREAT time. The ship cancelled the excursion at the last minute and we were able to be added on to an already full excursion. Everyone was great! We had THE best time. Love Love Love!!
    Special thanks to Marjorie from the company she was MORE than helpful and accommodating.

    What an amazing day and so well organised! All the staff are truely passionate and very knowledgeable of the area and the enviroment. Bit skeptical at first as I have been on trips like this before where they promise you will see the sharks etc. but true to their word, there were sharks and rays aplenty! great day and fantastic restaurant for lunch. thanks a lot Patrick, Mark and Natalie.

    This was an incredible experience- Tour guide- I cannot remember her name but was extremely knowledgeable- I have been on many snorkeling tours and this was by far the best I have been on. We saw , sea turtles, sting Rays a myriad of fish, but my favorite was the nurse sharks. The lunch stop was very good! what a beautiful day
