This was a very good excursion. The land portion was a tour of the island, with Jennifer and Moises. We were a small group in a comfortable van. Jennifer was very knowledgeable about her Island The sea portion, with Oscar and Derwyn, was very nice. We cruised out along the coast and the Dolphins put on a show for us during our return cruise. Good tour, very hospitable guides.

Thoroughly enjoyed the excursion; our guide was most helpful and knowledgeable. The small size of the group was a real bonus.
Guide Joshua Bush did a great job showing us around island and telling it’s history. We went on drive around island, top of hill for beautiful scenery and great local prices. Then to West (tourist) end for a boat ride, pretty scenery, lovely homes, and snorkeling for an hour or so. Then back to west end for drinks and lunch. Nice interesting day, great guide with lots of stories and information, and a value to boot.
This excursion was much more than I expected. The guides were very informative. The snorkeling portion of the trip was amazing. The best I did on the whole cruise.
