A Great Experience!

My family and I took the morning snorkel sail and had a wonderful time. Excellent staff. Chris, Mike and Don were our crew. They were incredibly knowledgeable and did a great job. It was a beautiful morning on the water. A highlight en route to our snorkeling spot was an encounter with a school of dolphins. Captain Don was able to get them to come right up to our boat. Saw many fish during our snorkeling time, but honestly just being in and on that magnificent water was what made the experience so special.
