My friends and I snorkeled the reefs with Dusty and Angie. They accommodated the needs of all on board, provided anecdotal information, and charmed us all. Highly recommend this dynamic duo for a tour of the beautiful reefs!

My wife and I appreciated Dusty’s friendly attitude and his willingness to answer questions and give advice. The fish were beautiful. I never thought I could have been safely near so many.

Nice, safe boat out to the reef weather and sea conditions permitting. No overcrowding. Helpful staff and crew. No hard selling for on board drinks as can happen elsewhere. Wet suits and prescription goggles available.
