Awesome boat ride, beautiful stops, great day

Highly recommend this day trip! Charlie and Gloria were awesome!! The open bar was great if you like rum punch or beer, the food was good and the stops along the way were excellent. Snorkeling at Creole Rock was fabulous. I think we had a smaller group than pre-covid times but it was not crowded at all and we got to hang out where we wanted on the boat (the trampoline up front). The way out was very choppy and several people did get seasick but we stuck it out (and got SOAKED) up front. I didn’t mind! It was also not like a booze cruise feel I was expecting w/an open bar (also did not mind), I’m thinking because lots of people got queasy at the start. I wished there was a little more explanation as we went around the island because I was hoping to see beaches I wanted to return to later in the trip, etc, but there were no explanations or announcements except for at our three stops (Tintamarre, Creole Rock and Long Beach). We did some sailing too which my partner was really excited about as a catamaran person.

Quality time has a super crew

The crew was Great! The captain Dean however of Quality time was an ass to his crew. James, Maria and Charlie were so pleasant and helpful and really made the trip enjoyable. The water was very choppy on the way to our first stop and I became very seasick. Charlie and Maria took very good care of me. After we were at our first destination I was able to feel better and enjoy the rest of the day.

Quality Time withCaptain D and crew, Charlie and Gloria, were the highlights. We saw rays and turtles at Tintamare and lots of fish at Creole Rock. Lunch and open bar on board was spectacular! All in all, one of the best tours we have ever take! Five stars plus!

Friendly & Fun Crew

I HIGHLY recommend this trip. The crew was super friendly and a lot of fun, the views were incredible, and there was plenty to eat and drink! I usually avoid day trips/tours because I get bored and tired easily, but that definitely wasn't the case on this tour. I had a great time and would go again! TIP: Please don't bring children on this tour, as it's definitely more of a "booze cruise."
