The captains were really good, knowledgable, and helpful. We saw some dolphins. Snorkeling at the ruins was cool. Would have liked more time there. Price was good. Would recommend and do it again.

It was an unforgettable trip. I would definitely recommend it, specially for a group. The only thing I would do before getting onto the boat is to eat something heavy.

We had a wonderful time with IBA. We were a little worried taking our 2 year old out all day on a boat. She had a great time. The crew was very knowledgeable and entertaining. There was never a dull moment.
