Great staff, but experience just ok. Been snorkling in the Keys and this did not compare. Was interesting to look at urchins and crabs. Also saw a Squirrel fish in his hole.

Staff, equipment, experience were all top notch. Considered many different options and was glad we went with the one we did. Seen several dolphins, had great experiences with the snorkeling. Atmosphere was amazing. 3 hours went by too fast.

This excursion was part of my Granddaughters graduation trip before she goes to college. Even though the weather was not optimal the captain and crew did an amazing job of making sure we all had a great time. Olivia and Grace are absolutely on top of game. I will definitely be back!

The captain and crew did a great job! We saw some dolphins before leaving the Bay Area and stopped out 50yds short of Shell Island and snorkeled. Numerous shells and sea urchins were found along with myself finding a starfish! Everyone looked at our catches on the boat and we threw them back. Rum punch and alcohol was definitely available as well! Good “3 hour tour”!

Water was really low so we didn't see as much cool stuff as some times, but it was really fun for us.

We tried 2 days in a row to go to St Andrew's and take a shuttle to shell island to snorkel, they were limiting entrance so we couldn't get in both days...I booked this cruise very last minute and there were tons of spots left! Very roomy boat with bathrooms, captain and crew were amazing!! Snorkel excursion was a blast and we saw some really cool things! It was a Saturday so lots of boat traffic and we didn't get to see any dolphins, so I would definitely suggest taking this cruise on a weekday! We had an absolute blast either way though, and the rum punch was the best, cheapest drink I got on our whole trip!
