It was incredible. Went to sea some breath taking sea turtles and incredible sting rays. The rum punch wasn't bad either;)

We had a great time! We boarded a nice vessel called the Sabare fit for about 100 people with only 16 of us. The crew was great. We went a spot near a sunken vessel to snorkel, there weren't too many fish to see but still nice. Then they took us to a private beach near the airport, it was neat watching the planes fly over. After about an hour later we headed back. It was a fun day and worth the money. Read Less

Saw turtles, rays, fish, coral and a shipwreck. Was advertised for 3.5 hours and we were back in less than 3 hours. Would have loved to have had more time snorkeling.

It was nice but nothing special. Snorkeled over turtles, a shipwreck and very small coral reef. No drinks provided until the cruise back to the dock at the end. Short, fun, but nothing to write home about.

We took a catamaran to a shipwreck site and another site for snorkeling and saw beautiful tropical fish and sea turtles. The crew were great and we were served snacks and rum punch before returning to port.

It was a long wait to take off. The sail was great there and back. However, we didn't see any turtles and only a few fish. This ship wreck was cool. Go snorkeling in Hawaii, it's great

Booked with Castaway Girl - A catamaran snorkel trip to Buck Island and then a stop at Honeymoon Beach. Great crew and ok snorkeling - saw a couple of turtles and rays and other reef fish, but busy, over used location. Honeymoon beach was ok - busy. Only was there for an hour - tried to eat lunch, but their "island time" was very slow, so never did get a chance to eat our food! But would recommend the excursion overall- fun experience and great views of the islands. Read Less

Ferry ride to St John was smooth and enjoyable, transportation to the snorkeling cove was quick on relatively new, open-air taxis, and the beach was amazing. Snorkeling conditions were excellent. You could probably do this excursion for much cheaper on your own if you're more familiar with the island. Still, for a first time visit, we enjoyed ourselves. Read Less

Did the Luxe Power Cat to Secluded Congo Cay excursion. The boat was frustratingly crowded at the beginning, especially getting on near the end. Ride out bumpy. The snorkeling was disappointing. There was some coral and few fish. After that, though, they were giving out drinks - a mixed drink they called Pain Killer. Could have the rum with coke if your preferred. The music was playing, and the atmosphere became festive. They made a stop at a deserted beach (probably used by locals before recent hurricane). It was fun to swim in ocean. Some people did jumps off boat. More drinking and music. So, I wouldn't recommend it because there has to be better snorkeling excursions, but it was fun on the way back. Read Less

Snorkeling is always fun- only issue being the weather ! it rained throughout but the kids had a great time anyway. Boat crew great fun and managed regardless.
