St. Thomas Turtle Swim Excursion Reviews
We were on The Cat which took us out to Turtle Cove. The excursion was very crowded but we saw some turtles up close (one even surfaced right in front of my face!). I would recommended this for a once in a lifetime experience.
Always a great time! Pirate Ship Blackbeard's Revenge. In St. Thomas, we always book a Bones tour. Our son LOVED it! The sea was rocky for the hour out to the site (nobody's fault!). We had the option of the a.m. or p.m. tour and picked the p.m. It was a GREAT idea! The sun was setting on the way back and we got to see the cruise ship all lit up from our pirate ship.... stunning and beautiful.
Turtles were cool, snorkeling coral after was a bit lame but we had rough water. went on a pirate ship: the Doubloon. Great ship, nice staff, good rum punch. a bit of a sales pitch for shirts and tips at the end but it was still a good time.
Magen's Bay in the morning was phenomenal.
My favorite port was St. Thomas because it was really easy to get on and off the ship. We took an excursion on the Cat (Catamaran) to Turtle Cove and saw tons of turtles and other fish. When we got back, we took a short 5-10 cab ride to Frenchman's Reef (Marriott Resort) and hung out on their beautiful beach for the rest of the day.
Good value for money, great catamaran, excellent time.
Turtle Cove Swim and Snorkel. Great excursion and worth the money. Catamaran was a very short walk (parked right next to our ship). Great crew and trusted them with my life (lol). Awesome scenery on the ride over. All of the guys were so informative too. Any question they new the answer to. Had plenty of time in the water, did not feel rushed. Saw some awesome fish and lots of turtles. One swam right up next to me for air I could have hugged it! Definitely recommend this tour. This is a good first time snorkel tour too, very laid back and calm.
I have never snorkeled before and I had no idea what to expect. They boat you out to a cove where the water is very very clear and it's only 20 feet. You have the choice whether to walk in or jump off the boat. They teach you how to put on your mask and use the snorkel. There were kids 4 years old that were snorkeling up to 80 years old. I recommend it for families that want to snorkel but aren't sure if they will like it. I ended up loving it and i'm 18 years old! I know I wouldn't have loved it as much if we didn't have such a helpful crew. They were so caring, and really wanted our experience to be a great one. They showed us where the turtles, fish, and other sea creatures were. They were super helpful, and they made me feel comfortable. We saw a lot of turtles and fish, and they were so willing to come up to us humans. It's a great experience, and I would do it again.
