Lovely afternoon on the sea

The crew was soo welcoming and friendly- we saw several sea turtles at each stop along with a couple starfish and 3-5 southern stingrays. Jumping off the roof into the ocean was a special thrill for me! The guides were attentive and informative, checking to be sure we were comfortable and safe. They noticed my particular concern for my dry eye condition and made sure all was well. Efficient snorkel equipment, plenty of beer, water and Rum punch! I recommend this trip and thanks to the captain, Lori, and Olivia for taking care of us❤️

We certainly wouldn’t do this trip again.

So let me preface this by saying I’m not one to leave negative reviews. I understand that people can have a bad day and small businesses rely on word-of-mouth reviews. And I realize that some of my complaints are first-world problems, so take this information for what it’s worth. We had such high hopes for this snorkel trip (of course they can’t guarantee that you’ll see turtles — and we didn’t). But that’s not the disappointing part. First, the tour started late. We were supposed to arrive at the meeting spot at 8:45am. But 9am came and went. Other participants had gathered in the same spot (we thought we may have been at the wrong place). Around 9:20, the boat captain arrived calling out a few of our names. Again, not the end of the world, but don’t be surprised if there’s a delay at the start. While we were waiting, we met a few of the other couples, and it was a fun small group. So we headed to Buck Island to begin snorkeling. While we were out snorkeling, the captain and deckhand on the boat saw several turtles. Why not mention to us where to start looking to see some of those turtles?! Also, beware that you should not bring spray sunscreen on the boat, because the captain will shame you about it. She was quite harsh in her delivery. I understand now that it can make the deck slippery, but there’s a more delicate way to let someone know that. Then we headed to Honeymoon Island for some relaxation, which was nice! be prepared to spend some $$$ if you’re going to buy drinks and a snack from the restaurant on the beach. What was most disappointing was the captain said that everyone should return to the boat by 12:45. And we all returned to the boat by 12:45 — but the captain was irritated that this was going to cut into her lunch hour. So then tell us to be back by 12:30 — or maybe get started on time! The drinks onboard the boat were nice, and we appreciated the deckhand’s service, so it wasn’t all bad! I feel that the captain’s poor attitude really sucked the fun out of this event. When she mentioned near the end that tips are accepted, she became very friendly. We certainly wouldn’t do this trip again — not worth the $250 that we paid.

Thank you for taking the time to write. This seems like a very fair and thoughtful review. Our Captain obviously had an off day here. We appreciate the note as it allows us to take action and improve our service. While we have several hundred 5 Star Reviews for this charter, we do regret that our Captain had an off day. We have also reached out to this guest to make further amends. Thanks again for the note.

We loved this so much! I looked thru a ton of these tours and settled on this one and I am so so so glad that we did! Holly the captain was funny and super nice, definitely made the boat ride enjoyable ❤ the snorkeling was perfect, 2 people saw turtles, we didn't make it that far but it was still amazing. Drinks on the boat and honeymoon beach were great! Definitely well worth what we paid. Would highly recommend!
