Exclusive Supreme Snorkeling
November 14, 2022
I feel terrible because I forgot the two gentlemens’ names. I believe it was Clay and then the captain we had that day. Clay had found my boyfriend and I as we were trying to find the beach shack, so there was no stress there. They were both so funny and took great care of us. They had everything we needed. Plenty of masks and all sorts of fins, and every size possible. They had lots of rum punch to give. And the conch salad is actually prepared on board! The captain actually had caught about three conch shells while we were snorkeling (he free dove) and after took us to a private island where he showed us how they cut and prepare conch. Then, we got lucky because a stingray swam up to shore and we got to hold, kiss, and pet her. They let each couple on our excursion take home a conch shell from our lunch. The spot they took us to was beautiful! Lots of fish and wildlife to see. The snorkeling was not an issue because they took their time with us. Money well spent!

It was a bit challenging finding where to check in. My email said the representative would have a different colored shirt from the black they were wearing. Turns out they recently got new shirts. Once we found the store front checkin went smoothly. They had a wide variety of fin sizes and they got you all fitted before getting on the boat. The equipment was high quality. Our captain Vasco and first mate Clay were amazing and took safely seriously yet provided a very fun experience. We saw a variety of sea life when snorkeling but the highlights were the dolphin and sea turtles. Seeing Clay dive for conch was amazing. When we stopped for lunch a sting ray came by and everyone got to touch him and pose for pictures with him. It was a wonderful excursion and the perfect length of time. We never felt rushed.

We loved this excursion. The instructions to find them was spot on. The captain and his mate were fantastic. The snorkel equipment was great. The ocean was a little choppy so we only snorkeled at one place but got to spend longer there which was nice but unfortunately there wasn’t too many fish around (but that’s nature). The island they took us to was beautiful and the captain is truly a stingray whisperer - got to hold & and kiss it and loved it’s back massage. The conch harvest, preparation and salad was educational and tasty. We will be back!

We had an exclusive tour with just the two of us. Vasko and Ed were extremely professional and so helpful especially when in the water. They point out many different kinds of fish. Really enjoyed the Conch search and ceviche.

Amazing and very professional!

We took this excursion in December 2019. It was well organized, and Vasco and the captain did an amazing job at sharing information about the island, ensuring everyone had a great time, safety focused and led a guided tour. We had three stops at a shallow coral bed, the great wall and Gibbs Caye to see the Sting Ray's. It was small group of 16 and we could not recommend this tour enough- it's the perfect day in paradise! Thank you vasco

Great excursion, happy with the 4 stops
February 17, 2020
It's worth it to do this 4-stop excursion rather than the less expensive ones. All 4 sites were unique and fun. Our boat had 10 people - way less than the ones booked through the cruise line. We would do this again if we had the chance.
Wonderful day at Grand Turks
January 22, 2020
The tour exceeded my expectations! Our guides were wonderful, informative, inviting and went above and beyond to provide a memorable experience . The tour included a few different stops where encounters with different fish as well as stingray were just amazing. I highly recommend this tour!

Exclusive Snorkelling - Grand Turk
January 02, 2020
Small group (6) with two crew. What can I say - best snorkelling I have done. Vasso and Liston made this a wonderful experience. Hubby was not so keen - was nervous - but they looked after him well and he now has the wonderful memory of this experience. He says it was the best trip of our holiday. Garden Reef and The Wall were memorable, completely safe and We were mesmerised by what we saw. Fish were everywhere and we did meet the nurse shark. Onward trip to Gibbs Cay where Liston was diving for Conch. He found a massive star fish. Gibbs Cay is wonderful - an uninhabited Island with proverbial white sand and multiple sea blues. We all tried the Conch ceviche (actually very nice) and rum punch (very, very nice!!) All rounded off by seeing the stingrays. There were not many but I snorkelled again by myself afterwards and saw two gliding around below. Advice: take a go pro. Caution - it is a small boat and you need some agility to climb the ladder out of the water after snorkelling.
Reviewer: Val Bryant
very good experience
December 18, 2019
The "guides" were very helpful always looking to see if anybody needed help. Not the more fishes around but enough for snorkelling. We sow dolphins and fed the rays which were a new experience for most of the people around

Our boat driver was safe and knowledgeable while our guide has an excellent understanding of the underwater environment. I especially appreciated his fish feeding simply with oatmeal in a little bottle--no harm there at all! His ability to get the conch shells and the 2 guys telling us about them was a treat!

I'm a scuba diver, but my adult daughter went with me for snorkeling as she is not scuba certified. This company was fantastic! A little slow getting started, but totally worth the wait. The guys knew where to go for the best views of fish and coral. It was as good as a scuba dive. Super relaxed atmosphere. They caught conch and made us a fresh conch salad and we played with sting rays - Way more than we expected. Highly, highly recommend. .

The snorkeling I absolute loved that. It was awesome when I was able to pet the shark and had the school of multiple fishes around me. That water was just absolutely sea heaven. It was amazing how they took us to the other island to pet the sting rays as well as make the homemade conche salad I would definitely, definitely do that excursion again to pet the shark again that was awesome just wish I had more time.
Reviewer: Rachel Harden
August 08, 2019
I cannot say enough! Our captain and guide went above and beyond as they took us around the reefs! Watching them dive down to the bottom was a sight to see, especially with the fish following them back up! From encouraging the fish to swim around us to our encounters with the stingrays, this was by far and away the best excursion that we have been on! Not to mention, our group consisted of only the 6 of us! We will go on this trip again! Thanks guys (I wish I could remember your names) for the wonderful experience! You are awesome and impressive!

Snorkeling and Grand Turk
August 07, 2019
Snorkeling and Grand Turk was amazing. The captain took us to three separate spots with our own personal dive instructor One was a pilot and the other one was a firefighter both very qualified We were able to get conch and they make conch salad for us and we fed the stingrays. Amazing time!
Reviewer: David Rogers
3 excursions in 1!
July 15, 2019
On the Exclusive Supreme there was only 15. The location was easy to find but someone from the company found us first. Used my first name and we got personal help with fitting fins and masks. We went to two different spots to snorkel. The staff were very fun and knowledgeable and made sure everyone was safe and having a good time. After snorkeling we went to a spot to dive for conch. They suggest that only those that are very good swimmers get in the water. Two men did including my husband. He said it was the best experience. The final stop was a small secluded beautiful beach with soft sand where the huge friendly sting rays hang out. You get to touch and kiss the rays for good luck if you want to. This is where they serve the rum punch and you get a good amount of time to hang out and chill. They do an amazing conch demonstration and serve a conch salad.
Can't wait to do it again!
June 25, 2019
It is rare that something exceeds expectations as this terrific excursion did. It was exactly as described, with very caring and attentive staff. We will do this again when we visit GT for sure!

Walked maybe a quarter mile from our pier, they had a tent set up with a sign. No problem finding it. Small group of us, 9 total. We snorkeled, saw a lot of fish, and a nurse shark! The island was nice, great pictures. Great staff, I would do it again, no questions.

Capt Eric and Roscoe were phenomonal.They educated us about the island and the parties on the governor's private beach and about the shipwrecked freighter. Roscoe snorkeled with us and fed the fish so they would come out. I also watched him dive down and grab a nur shark for us all to pet and he let me hold and release him. Roscoe also dove down at our next stop and got a starfish and conch to make us fresh conch salad...it was awesome. When we went to Gibb's Cay he got stingrays to take pictures with us and give us back massages. We finished the trip with some rum punch and great conversation...BOOK THIS TRIP..

These guys were a hoot!!!

Great time!! The water was rough and cloudy the day we were there but these guys made the time great. Saw amazing wildlife and then went to a secluded island for beach treats. Amazing day even though the weather didn’t cooperate. Only suggestion would be to provide pool noodles to the snorkelers to help remain steady while snorkeling. Thanks for a great trip!!!

Exclusive Supreme Snorkeling at Grand Turk
April 03, 2019
This was our favorite excursion of our entire cruise in March 2019.I am a mom with 3 college-age daughters.The beach proximity to the ship & beautiful white sand with crystal reflective water was a plus from the start.The meeting area was easy to find & the check-in rep made us feel welcome.Our boat driver & diver were fantastic! Our diver assists Jeff Corwin when he journeys there.They were teaching/ safety focused.We had 8-10 people & snorkeling at the reef/drop-off was gorgeous & great for underwater pics.We could touch fish up close and watch our diver gather conk shells.The private beach where the rays gathered with driftwood & small white stackable stones was incredible.Our boat driver opened several conks & cut-up the meat for a conk marinated salad for us & tourists kept the shells. Watching/touching the rays with the ray massage, ray kiss for 7 years of blessing, & ray sombrero-like photo was unforgettable.We still had time to hang-out on the main beach or shop for souvenirs.

March 24, 2019
This was the highlight of my cruise. Both the Captain and Mate were wonderful and very knowledgeable. I got to see a nurse shark, octopus and many different fish. We also saw the wall. It was great to hold a stingray and get pictures kissing it and the Captain holding it over my head. Would highly recommend this tour.

This was the best tour! The weather wasn't the best but who cares? We were in the water so it didn't matter. We were taken to a nearby shallow reef where we snorkeled for a while. The guides were fabulous. One of them had some food for the fishes and the fishes followed him around like puppies. You could touch the fish as they fed. So cool! Then we got back on the boat and went a short distance to an area where there was a huge drop off. We swam there for a while and more cool fishes. Then we got back on the boat and went around the end of the island where the guide dove down for conch. Then we went to another little island where there were stingrays. The guide held one for us where we could touch them. Super cool! Then we did a little hike to the top of the hill where the view was amazing. These guys were great and this was my favorite tour. I'd for sure do this again.
Best excursion! Highly recommend
March 11, 2019
This was by far our most favorite and best excursion!! Both the Captain and his crew were great to spend the day with and the snorkel stops were incredible. First time ever seeing nurse sharks up close. It was unforgettable. The last stop at Gibbs Cay was amazing too! Tons of sting rays and our small group of people made it super enjoyable. The conch display by the Captain and salad made was delicious as well. Was a wonderful day with sunshine and great memories. Would select this excursion again if we went back.

Spectacular Reef and best snorkeling tour ever!!
February 21, 2019
Wow! The best snorkeling trip ever. The coral reef was breath taking! Capt Craig and First Mate Martial were outstanding! Both were very knowledge and shared facts and history with us. I love that we had a small group and was able to interact easily with both Capt and First Mate. We had the opportunity to dive with Martial for conch, and then follow him through the beautiful coral reef. We allowed us to assist with feeding the beautifully colored fish, as well as, pointing out key points of interest. We then went to the private island for more breathing views, fresh conch ceviche and some strong rum punch. Martial, ever so gently, gathered up a ray for the group to view, and touch if desired. The amount of rays swimming around was amazing. I can't say enough about this tour and Capt Craig and First Mate Martial. We will definitely use them again, and have already recommended them to our friends who are cruising next week. Great crew and sites!!
February 20, 2019
This was a wonderful experience, great staff, lots of fish and marine life and felt safe. Good for both experienced and inexperienced snorkel but I would recommend having tried snorkelling prior. Easy to locate on the beach. We also met other nice people and saw a whale on our way back.

This was an amazing snorkeling adventure. The boat was on the smaller side, we had 15 snorkelers. The guides, Eric and the other were attentive and always watching and assisting those who needed help. We played and fed the sea rays. The conch salad was good too! I would recommend this Snorkel tour - 5 stars!!

We really enjoyed this tour! The two snorkeling stops were amazing with plenty of fish and a great view of “the Wall.” The guides were very knowledgeable and gave us information not only on the wildlife but of Grand Turk and it’s history. Loved the conch salad. We saw the big boats with hundreds of people snorkeling and it really drove home the benefit of doing a small tour.

We had a great time on our snorkeling adventure with Eric and Gary. The tour tent was easy to find after we got off of our cruise ship and we checked in no problems. Gary put on quite a show while snorkeling, attracting fish and showing us the beautiful reef and Great Wall. The stingray and conch part of the tour was fun as well. Great guides and a great time. Would recommend!
We all where very pleased with this tour
July 02, 2018
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in a small hands on group. Eric the boat captain and Gary made sure we enjoyed our snorkeling tour. After watching the cruise line tour there was just two many people. The best part for myself and Grand kids was the time spent diving for conch and holding the sting rays which came to visit.

A must do small group Excursion
July 02, 2018
Capt Gary & Capt Eric were fantastic guides, hosts and representatives of their Grand Turk Island. They showed pride in the Snorkeling Tour they hosted. Our group was very small, just two families, totalling 6 guests. This made it very personalized. I have snorkeled at many Islands and this had the most colourful and widest variety of fish. The colour of the coral was spectacular. We would do this Tour again.
Reviewer: Cameron & Christine
Great time with Captain Eric!

We were so glad that we booked this excursion! What a great time with a small group of people. We ended up in the same area as a group that booked on the cruise ship and there looked to be 50+ people on their boat. We enjoyed the entire experience, especially playing with the sting rays and having the conch salad. If we are ever to return we will definitely book this again!!

I can not express how much we enjoyed this excursion. For one thing, it was a small group and we got a lot of personal attention. It was the highlight of our trip. I am not a good swimmer and was very reluctant to go snorkeling. When they realized this, they took a life ring and swam with me out to see the wonderful sights. Would highly recommend this excursion!

Highlight of our cruise
February 24, 2018
This was the highlight of our trip for myself and my 6 yr old snorkeler. The group was small. We snorkeled at 2 spots, including the wall, then a third spot for conch diving. Then heading out to Gibbs Cay was just a sight to behold. No one was on the island when we got there - just a pristine, beautiful white sandy beach, blue water, etc. Upon arrival, Eric prepared the conch, all the while entertaining us with the process. Ate conch salad, drank some rum punch, and then Gary worked his magic attracting a very large ray (there is no enclosure). My son also found a smaller ray that he followed non-stop until it was our turn to interact with the giant. When we returned, they let my son keep his conch and they cleaned it up really well for him. He is so proud of this giant gorgeous shell. I rarely do the same activity twice but I would definitely make an exception if I ever cruise back to this port.

Snorkle and stingrays!
February 10, 2018
Highly recommend. Easy to find. You can see the meet up location from the ship. Easy check in and gear fitting. We made 2 snorkeling stops. 1 was to "the wall" with a deep/steep drop off and 1 was a nice reef. We made a stop for the guide to dive down and harvest conch. We beached our boat in a stingray area. One guild prepared fresh conch salad for us. Another guide fed conch to the local sting rays. Great natural encounter with the sting rays. Highly recommended

Captain Eric and Ed were outstanding! Their commitment to safety and providing a quality experience were truly appreciated. We made 4 stops on our adventure: reef snorkeling just feet from coral and plenty of fish, we also snorkeled along "the Wall" where the sea floor drops off from 35 feet to 7000 feet, conch diving on the other side of the island where one of our grown sons did a great job of free diving and bringing up conch, we then beached the boat on a small island where we could interact with stingray and they prepared fresh conch salad. It was surprisingly tasty! We were able to bring home a beautiful conch shell too. Best excursion of our trip!
