I didn't participate because I was arguing with my family and decided not to continue on a boat. I am of the opinion that srguments are best resolved in the open not in a car or s boat

I am sorry you didn't do the tour. I am sure you would have had a great time. Maybe the next time you visit you can experience our lovely island by water. Wishing you a safe 2022.

Amazing experience + great tour guide
Jasa

Andre was knowledgeable & friendly. He made us feel at ease when we were a little hesitant about getting into the water. He made sure to be patient with us & when we were in the water, he continuously pointed out different fish & items of interest. Highly recommend having him as your guide. He was amazing.

Just an OK trip
Gerald_H

The trip was ok. Julius was fun but he and everybody else just use the same old cliche sayings, like "Happy wife, happy life" way too much. the actual snorkeling was good and we enjoyed our time in the water. The lunch was good as well. Nothing stood out as excellent, and I would say this is a good trip to go on. Honestly, my wife had better snorkeling by herself at Sugar Beach and Anse Chastanet.

Lots to see under the sea
Tracy_R
, Feb 2020
We saw many kinds of fish (Angel, Jewel, Puffer, Trumpet ) and a small group of squid. Lots of coral but it is mostly yellow. The lunch was great as were the captain and crew. Teresa our shuttle driver was awesome which was good as it was a long way into Marigot Bay from Rodney Bay. The divers go with the snorkelers so I recommend you sign up for the beginner diving since it is only done at one of the two locations you sign up for. You get to do both in one day for one price. Note this is not a booze cruise. The divers on board are serious and this is not a party boat with music and dancing between sites.

Thanks for your review. We are glad that you had a wonderful time on both occassions and the staff will also glad to know that they did a wonderful job. Blessings to you both.

Great Snorkel Trip

The first snorkeling stop was great. We saw trumpet fish, squid, and many other great fish. During the second spot we saw a sea snake. The guides were helpful without being overbearing.

Fantastic tour!
Jack H

This too far exceeded our expectations. Not that we did not have good expectations, but it was even better than what we could’ve expected. Andre, Who ran the tour, and took us from the cruise ship port to the marina, is simply a prince of a guy. Professional, engaging, and knowledgeable. Just a superb human being. He was also our captain on the snorkeling and dive tour. He took us to two exceptional spots, with the snorkeling was fantastic. Vanessa who work at the dive shop was also great. Lucky, who served as our snorkeling guide, was equally great. They served a delicious lunch on board, and had plenty of water and grapefruit juice to keep us hydrated. The trip both to and from the dive site was relaxing and scenic. I cannot recommend this tour more highly.

Wonderfull Experience Book this!

We came to St Lucia for a day on a cruise ship and were picked up right at the port and taken to the boat. These guys were very professional, and courteous. They had a total of 7 people including us and we all did different things. My husband and I are snorkelers. One couple spent their day at the beach using non motor craft items, Three others were divers and 2 of them were trying it for the first time. Each group had their own person leading them on their excursion. Our guy was Mervin. He was excellent in pointing out flounder, squid, parrot fish, tangs, etc. My husband is a fish in the water and usually has to be dragged out. I am not as proficient in the water and normally give up after awhile. But I have to say that the amount of fish and coral we saw surpassed our expectations. I could have stayed forever. We went to 2 sites and both were great. The equipment we used fit really well and Mervin made sure I was comfortable during the snorkeling. All of us had a wonderful day. The dive instructor was great with the other couple new to diving. Lunch was ok but to be honest we just wanted to get back in the water. We are already planning a return trip and totally plan on using this company again.

Bad experience
Jenifer H

This was the most unorganized, unprofessional, uncommunicative group we toured with they were 45 minutes late picking is up for one I had never snorkeled they gave me no instructions, they took us hours out of the way put me in choppy bad waters down my first time swallowed enough sea water I was sick all day and it was my birthday. The captain ran the boat al day and the fumes were strong and caused my friend to be sick. I would never recommend this group. They are the worse, and the sad thing is it ruined my snorkeling experience and my birthday.

What a lovely trip. We were taken to two locations. A guide stayed with us. He called us over to point coral and various fish that he found for us to view. The lunch was home made and local. It was very tasty.

We had a great time! Great bang for our buck. They picked us up from the cruise dock and took us back as part of the package. The boat wasnt fast but it was comfortable and covered, which came in handy when it rained. The crew was super. They were available and helpful but not bothersome or intrusive. They kept an eye on us while we did our own thing. A strap broke on our GoPro so it went 40 to the bottom. Our snorkel guide free dove down to get it for us. Impressive! The lunch was good also. If youre looking for the rum punch party boat this is not it. If you want to snorkel or scuba in a good area with a safe reliable crew then book this one. All gear and vests provided.

Great tour. Rode to Marigot Bay to get on boat. Views from road and from boat as we went to Pitons area were fantastic. Got back to cruise ship on time. Have seen more fish snorkeling on other islands, but the boat ride made this a great tour.

Well organized and professional!! The owner and his staff were very courteous and friendly, while keeping a good professional attitude. They made us all have a wonderful experience enjoying snorkeling in wonderful environments. We were picked up at the cruise terminal and later on, dropped off at the same location, which was very convenient. Lunch served at the boat consisted in lasagna and salad. It was very adequate and there was enough food for everybody with a bit of leftovers. We went as a family of 4 kids of 12 and 14. Everybody had a wonderful time. The equipment provided for snorkeling was of good quality and we had no issues with it. I definitively recommend this tour!

The snorkeling was quite good until we swam into hordes of tiny, stinging jellyfish. The home cooked lunch was tasty and filling. However, the process to get to the snorkeling seemed interminable. Communication could have been much better. After the swimming, we were left off to take a van back to the ship. No one knew this would happen. It was not a huge problem, but advance notice would have been in order.
