Thank you. We observe the Wildlife Code and don't get so close to the animals that we would disturb them but still manage to give our guests some pretty good views

An increasing number of cruise passengers now book independently and we're delighted to show them some of what our islands have to offer.Our short one hour trip still leaves plenty of time to explore ashore during your visit

So glad you had a good time. This is one of our longer trips but we use the opportunity to make four interesting stops on the route. The scenery is quite different from our other trips
