    John was our tour guide, and he was absolutely amazing! He was super knowledgeable, professional, and fun to be with for the few hours of the tour. We were able to see a ton of marine life, including turtles, fish, eels, and so much more! John knew the best locations to make the tour super active! He was also very accommodating to everybody’s skill levels on the tour. Would highly recommend and will be back during whale season to do this again!!

    Our experience was beyond epic and exceeded our expectations. Madi was the perfect guide! We appreciated her knowledge and expertise making us feel safe while enjoying a memorable family experience. We highly recommend this tour with Madi since she was the ideal guide. We received an education as well as better understanding of the ocean life and how to navigate the water respectfully and mindfully. It was the ultimate island experience.

    John our guide was amazing! Added humor along with education. There was a first timer in our group and he was so patient and encouraging. It took her a bit but she finally let go of the boat and enjoyed her time in the water without any pressure. We got lucky and saw 2 turtles. I liked that we were away from the crowds. Just our small group of 5. Go at 7:15 it’s worth it.

    Tyler was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We went out with only one other couple and it was a great personal experience, kayaking out to the reef and being able to snorkel surrounded by sealife and turtles was amazing. 100% recommend this experience, much better than the boat tours for snorkeling that look impersonal, crowded and not relaxing at all.

    John was an amazing guide! He was so enthusiastic and made everything seem so amazing! I would 10/10 recommend anyone do the tour! Seeing the reefs and fish up close (even a sea turtle!) made my dreams come true!

    Tyler was an amazing guide and was a great teacher for our first time snorkeling and kayaking. We’d love to do it again.

    We had an awesome experience. Our guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely recommend. We hadn’t snorkeled in years and e was very patient.

    Our guide Nico was great — my kids (9, 12, 15) loved him. He even dove for my husbands glasses after we toppled over. Just enough activity to feel like a challenge but not intimidating. Knocking off a star because the snorkeling was disappointing; however, I can’t really blame the tour company for that.
