A Nautical Safari
Grab your swimsuit and get ready to enjoy a safari like no other! Swim, snorkel, and play with sea animals during this intimate, half-day tour of St. Joseph's Bay, Turtle Bay, Ita Beach, and Brush Island.
Your tour starts at St. Joseph Bay where the captain will share procedures, safety issues, recommendations and a brief explanation of the tour. From there you will hop on the boat and head out to Turtle Bay where you can swim in the crystal clear waters and catch a green turtle! Pose with your turtle for the ultimate selfie, then get back on the boat and head to Ita beach. Enjoy swimming and games on uncrowded Ita Beach, sink your toes into the powdery white sugar sand, and watch sting rays playing in the turquoise blue green waters. Move on to Brush Island for some serious snorkeling as you admire the undersea world all around you. Relax on the beach at Brush Island and feast on a traditional lunch of chicken or fish, salad, dessert, and coffee or tea. Your tour ends back at St. Joseph Bay but the memories you collect will last forever.
What an amazing day! From start to end our guides were amazing. On this trip you'll explore 5 or 6 different parts of the area. Each are fantastic. Our boat had 11 people which was the perfect size. We were able to see turtles, dolphins, snorkel through a reef, walk on a beautiful white sand island and end the day savoring a nice meal on a private island. Our guides were very familiar when our ship departed and got us back before the last tender. You'll love this adventure.

While on the Voyager of the Seas cruise ship, we booked this excursion outside of Royal Caribbean. This excursion was our favorite! The beauty of Isle of Pines, NC, surpasses the other ports of call, along with the friendly service. Our guide, Charlie, was a ton of fun, and the food was excellent. We got to swim with turtles, up close and personal and take many pictures. The snorkeling stop was very good, but our favorite stop was the sandbar ... just so beautiful. Definitely recommend booking this excursion versus excursions offered by the ship. This was truly an all-day fun, relaxing excursion covering much more than you can get from the ship's excursions (somewhat limited).

We took this excursion recently from the Voyager of the Seas Cruise stop in New Caledonia. This excursion was by far the BEST excursion we took the entire trip! They take you to the prettiest places you may ever see! And when they see wildlife in the ocean, they just stop the boat and jump in to see it! The people who run the tour are so nice and inviting and the food was amazing. I give this tour a 15 out of 10!
