This was an exceptional outing in every way. Our guide, Ricardo was THE BEST! The boats are a blast to drive and this is absolutely the best snorkeling experience I've ever had. There were so many beautiful fish and the coral reefs were fascinating. The tour was the perfect amount of time (about 2 hours) and a bargain for what we got. We loved the photos and drone video as well. That was a super awesome surprise to see when we got back to the dock (and worth every penny).

Great fun! First time driving a speedboat for me - great experience, amazed at how fast they go. The snorkelling was amazing - very relaxed, no rushing to get in/out of boat. Goggles, snorkel tube and flippers all provided. Was grateful for the fresh water shower at the end to get rid of the salt water.

This experience was everything and more. Having to drive the boat and send signals made the experience more personal. Jimmy is a great leader and teacher. I highly recommend this experience. The wind blowing in your face as you drive to and from the snorkel reef was exhilarating. The reef was beautiful we saw lots of fish and other things down under. I would do this again!
