We had such a great time. The guides were amazing… moved at our pace and shared lots of information. They stayed with us while snorkeling (our choice) and showed us some rays that we would have missed with our rookie eyes! It was our favorite outing…

Awesome crew! Drinks were flowing, music was bumping and everyone was up dancing. Nothing but laughter and a good time had by all. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Great activity with awesome guides. Best way to see The arch and Lover’s beach. The snorkeling spot was amazing! Worth every dollar!
