One of the highlights of my time in the Caribbean trip. Driving a small zodiac at high speed over ocean chop was great fun. Like being a kid again. The staff were very cordial and made the experience great. The snorkeling was good and creole rock was a scenic location. Would go again.

We ended up on this small boat snorkeling trip last month. The guys running it were not friendly or helpful getting our snorkel equipment on. The boats themselves were ok at lower speeds, but the ride was extremely rough over the open water. I had a backache the next day. No beverages were served even though we were in the... More

Just nose to tail follow the leader Did not stop to explain what we were looking at or what part of the island we... More

This was probably the highlight of our trip. We had SO MUCH FUN!! The staff was great! My husband drove out there and I drove back. It was so well worth the time and I would do it again and again. What I would do different was to have them stop at different points so we could take pictures of... More
