This was an sunset dinner cruise. We wanted something casual -not stuffy and this fit the bill. Good food (buffet of boiled shrimp, ribs, chicken, roasted veggies, appetizers, dessert, and unlimited drinks!) Can't beat the price. Saw a few whale sightings as well!!!!

Picked this tour based on trip advisor reviews. Met the boat at 7 am. Check in is rather chaotic. You'd think they could make the process a little easier. You stand in 1 line then another then a third before you get on the boat. Breakfast was just fruit and muffins. The crew gives a lot of instruction and they are great at making sure everyone feels comfortable. They provide several different flotation devices for free. (I recommend a noodle.) You can rent underwater cameras and there's also a crew photographer airways ready to take your picture (you buy the pics at the end). You can also rent a wet suit top which i would recommend. The water is cold and it helps keep you warm and protected from sunburn. We didn't see much at the crater other than some different kinds of fish and a blue eel. I think the problem is that there are LOTS of boats and seemingly hundreds of people out there at the same time. Surely all the activity scares away most of the creatures. Also with all the boats it can be confusing. (2 of our group got on the wrong boat!) After the crater we had lunch (burgers, chicken, hot dogs, veggie burgers etc) on the boat and it was tasty. At turtle town we only saw 2 turtles and some fish. Again I think the problem might have been too many people. The crew did a great job but I'd go out with a smaller group next time in the hopes that the chances of seeing more critters is improved

It was such an awesome snorkeling experience. The staff and crew were awesome, so friendly and helpful. I did think the boat was going to be a little nicer then it was, but still nice we got breakfast and lunch and drinks. The tour was great and we saw so many different types of fish and sea turtles.

Enjoyed it all. Started with a continental breakfast, snorkeling in the crater, lunch, snorkeling in Turtle Bay and then cookies and drinks. The Captain to the girl helping us in the water were wonderful. The photograph was a lot of fun and took great shots.

We made sure we booked on a day where the forecast didn’t call for any rain or winds at all as we wanted to make sure we would get to experience both locations. We were welcomed by super friendly staff. The captain was professional and informative.
It was obvious in their introductory comments they really respected sea life and the landmarks . For those who get sea sick like me I was surprisingly fine. They offered a drink with real ginger and sprite which helped.
The food was quite average, next time I would eat breakfast before or bring a snack. It’s all you can drink but only on the way back after the snorkel, at first we thought ‘that’s how they get you’ but they really made up for it! Drinks were delicious and strong . The snorkeling spots were absolutely, incredibly, unbelievable. We saw lots of fish and a turtle. There were dolphins on the way back and the captain slowed down and turned around to make sure we could all see them. They have a photographer take photos of everyone and we ended up buying the disk which was pretty expensive ($50USD) per couple and it has everyone from the cruise on there, the photos weren’t worth it in the end. All in all definitely worth the money and the experience!
