    Excellent tour! Water was clear for 40+ feet. Silk Cayes had coral and tropical fish in all directions. Our guide Garf was very knowledgeable and friendly, pointing out fish and items during the snorkeling events. At Turtle Alley we saw a Ryder turtle, nurse sharks who didn't care about us but only wanted to lie in the shade of our boat, some spotted rays, and even a barracuda who was checking us out from a distance. We all felt very safe with all the wildlife.
