Interact with marine animals at a safe distance and spend the day on this beautiful reserve with experienced snorkel experts to guide you. You will see marine life such as sharks, exotic fish, dolphins, seals, turtles and a multitude of sea life swimming amongst them. With four microhabitats to swim through, you will find a wide variety of underwater flora and fauna. With a small group, you’ll get a much more intimate experience of life underneath the water, with one of our guides and local lifeguards accompanying you while you swim.

It was great. Kayaking was so fun and had a great view of the caves. The early morning tour was best. I'm sure the current and conditions change, but from 9 am launch to the 11 am return the water got really rough. So happy we left early. Two person kayak was way easier also. Saw some kiddos 7-8ish. The water was way cold for me and the wetsuit made all the difference. This would have been a horrible experience without it. I'm from middle TN and we have 80 degree water temps in summer, this was 68! But the wetsuit made it refreshing and had no issues. They also have a cool store.

The whole experience was very well organized and overall a great time. I recommend the snorkel and kayaking tour to anyone who is wanting a more personal and hands on view of the caves and a look at what is under the water surface. Mark and Nora our guides were very knowledgeable and kept the group engaged the entire trip.

This was a great adventure we booked while on vacation!! Mark and Nora were our guides, they kept it fun and entertaining the whole time. They informed us about the marine life and history behind the rock caves. Loved this experience and would book it again in a heart beat.

Professional crew who did a great job letting us explore. Bonus to see leopard sharks in the bay which one of the crew pointed out to us.

Danielle was a very informative tourist. Making sure we got the best experience.
