Excellent Tour. Short and to the point with quality people all around. And the Manta Rays so close I thought they were going to touch my nose!!

Captain Mike with deck hand Kevin were a great crew. Presentations of snacks and lunch were very well done. Mike was knowledgeable and entertaining and both were unintentionally intentional about everyone having a good time. And the snorkeling was great, too 😎
