    Great tour

    Everything started great, our shuttle driver Jimmy was very professional and I must say wearing a very stylish chambray shirt. The tour itself was amazing. Even if you haven't tried snorkeling before try it, the crew is super helpful. We even spotted some marine life on the way out.

    The staff was amazing friendly and informative, and our captain ramon was awesome. He took my wife and I separately around the reef to see the turtles! Such an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend this to anyone. Photo of my wife and I and the Crew. The shuttle was on time and the driver was very friendly and made jokes and gave us recommendations for food to eat.
