Can I give this more that 5 stars??!!
This was the second time we're taken this excursion, and it was just as great as the first time! After a slow start and a 7-10 minute walk, we boarded the catamaran. First thing, we were handed a bottle of water and pictures were taken. After a sail of a bit over an hour, we were given instruction, divided into groups of beginners and experienced snorkelers. The water was crystal clear, comfortable, and there was an immense amount of corals, fish, turtles, and other sea-critters to observe. Beautiful area and a good amount of time to snorkel. The crew made sure everyone was safe, watched everyone from several kayaks, the cat, and the in-water tour guides. The tour guides also took cameras, dove deep, and got pictures upon request. After snorkeling was over, the rum bar opened, and we were treated to an excellent lunch with chicken, cole slaw, rice and beans, yellow rice with peas, potato salad, etc.
On the way back, we sailed part way, then were loaded into buses for about 30 minutes back to the ship. Found out afterwards that the seas were getting rougher and the crew didn't want anyone getting seasick. The buses were crammed and stuffy. This was the only negative of the whole excursion. (Thus the 4 for convenience.)
A couple of days later, we were emailed a whole bunch of pictures. Really loved getting these!
One final note, can't say enough for the whole crew, everyone was extremely professional, knowledgeable, personable, and super friendly! The family would definitely not hesitate to go on this tour a third time.
