    Great afternoon.

    Our captain Robin and Jamie, part of the crew were very friendly and helpful in explaining how everything worked. The sandbar was amazing, I've never seen anything like it, beautiful turquoise water. Perfect afternoon for a little snorkeling, SUP, and/or just floating on an inner tube. They had plenty of snacks; granola bars, chips, water and other beverages, plus it's BYOB. COVID safe with proof of vaccination required. Would recommend for all ages and experience levels. 🤙🏻🙂🏝

    Best Day!!

    My adult daughter and I went on the trip. We got picked up and dropped off right at our hotel in a comfy shuttle. The driver was so nice and gave tips along the way. We drove through beautiful scenery (the mountains are amazing) but not a winding road, so we didn’t get carsick. The captain and crew were friendly and patient and kind. The reef was spectacular!! So many fish and turtles, it was like being in an aquarium. The paddle boards were fun too. It was a stunning location surrounded by jagged mountains and the colors of the water were indescribable. Can you tell we loved it?? So glad we booked this trip!
