This by far was our favorite island adventure. Crew was friendly and provided excellent service. Coy shared his knowledge of marine life and got in the water for a more interactive experience. Tamara the hostess provided great service. Jamale was wonderful all around.

Perfect way to see the island and plenty of chances to snorkel! We went to three different areas to see fish, turtles, beautiful coral. Captain and crew were great! They were all very friendly and accommodating, and shared their knowledge and their experiences living on the island. Food and drinks were also great! Highly recommend.

Good boat handling and very nice crew! The music was so loud we couldn’t easily talk to others on the boat. Also, no detailed explanations of the island or the sites. Just the very basic information.

Great tour, the crew was amazing and very accommodating. Had the opportunity to see a few sea turtles, and sting rays. The captain joined us snorkeling to show us where to find the sea life. The food was very good and they kept the drinks flowing. Highly recommend

When we arrived we were told that due to weather conditions that our route couldn't be done. However we were all given a chance to not go but the captain gave us an option of something different and he sure delivered. My family and I had an amazing time onboard with a fabulous crew. There was the famous Rum punch, snacks, food and desert. The captain's knowledge of the area great and he delivered the top snorkeling spots for us. Thanks to all involved!

AMAZING CATAMARAN & WONDERFUL CREW!

Amazing Crew! Jamale, Joy and Mario went above and beyond to accommodate our group! They were friendly and funny. The food was great too, they served ribs, chicken, potato salad, salad, bread, cheese and unlimited drinks. They also had tuna sandwiches and cold cut sandwiches for snacks. The boat stopped at 2 locations for snorkeling and they were both pretty nice. I loved the trip and it was worth the price!

The crew were so fun and energetic, they want you to have a memorable experience! Mario, John Jack, Allen, and Seth were all very friendly, helpful, and overall great company! They all know what they’re doing and how to operate the catamaran. They stopped a couple times so you can swim, snorkel, or just hang out on the catamaran. They offered unlimited drinks so you are sure to enjoy yourself! Highly recommend!

Fantastic day trip around the island with 4 different stops. Great mix of sailing, relaxing, and snorkeling/swimming . Our crew was amazing [Allen, Guy, and Flor (Fleur?)] and we're very informative and attentive making sure everyone had what they needed. Would definitely do this trip again.

We had a fantastic time. Alain, Floor, and Mario were awesome. The weather was choppy so the snorkeling was probably not the best, but we did see some cool fish. The crew took us on an extra stop and that was excellent. We swam with schools of fish. The ride around the island was breathtaking. Thanks for the great day!!

Nasty Body Shots
William_M
, Sep 2021
Rough waters, water too murky from storms to see while snorkeling. Drinking crew member(owner’s son) doing body shots during a pandemic. Trip not as stated on itinerary, can understand the stuff due to weather. The captain, ,JP, and crew Flo and Prince tried to make the trip enjoyable. The gourmet lunch is a buffet of pre-made food serve on the boat. Part of the reason I picked this tour was lunch ashore. Food wasn’t bad but nothing about it is gourmet. Chicken, over cooked ribs, potato salad, salad and pasta salad. Mario argues with another guest basically tells him times how been hard with covid and the Hurricane 5 years ago. And he is a horrible selfish person for not understanding. How hard is it to update your itinerary to take out the details that are no longer true after 5 years. When we dock the owner meets me as so as we step off the boat defending her business. Her attitude was that she had did nothing wrong and we had gotten what we were promised. And told me what a wonderful time I had and the reason they do not use a restaurant anymore is the fear of COVID. Really mama your son is pouring rum on his torso for women to lick it off nothing more sanitary than that. Especially after hearing him ask a female guest if they had a bath tub because he missed baths. He hadn’t had a bath in over a year. I do think he has showered but honestly how gross does that sound. Professionalism at it’s best. This trip probably wouldn’t have been so bad if we hadn’t have make a special stop to pick up Junior.
