Never been snorkeling, or has it been awhile? This is the perfect time - and absolutely the perfect place - to begin or begin again!
After transferring from the cruise pier, you will meet your guide on the beach. Once you have filled out the waiver, your guide will familiarize you with the snorkel equipment you will be using and briefly describe what you can expect in the water.
Entering the water right from the beach allows you to take your time as you get comfortable breathing through a snorkel. Once comfortable, you are then taken on a guided snorkel. While you are in the water, you'll be surrounded by hundreds of tropical fish, blue tangs, damsels, angel fish, even seahorses darting about the rocks. The sand bottom makes a great backdrop, so their tropical colors really stand out. You will have the opportunity to feed the fish and interact with them during your approximate 45 minutes in the water.
After your snorkel tour, you can spend time at the beach to get a little more sun or take a swim. Chairs and beach equipment are available for rent on a first-come basis.
Note: Guests must be a minimum of six years old and should have a basic knowledge of swimming. Guests under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult.
We picked this snorkeling tour because it was listed as a good choice for beginning snorkelers, or first time snorkels. They were right on the money. My brother has learning disabilities and is new to snorkeling. He wanted to snorkel in the ocean on a cruise. After reading the tour description we signed up for this one. Our guide was Louis. He was skilled, charismatic, and an awesome with my brother. Louis walked us through the step up of our gear, eased us into the water from the shore, and slowing began the snorkeling instructions, letting us get comfortable. Once everyone gave Louise the ok that we were ready, he started the tour. Louis continuously chatted and check on my brother, and pointed out sea finds along the way, including ones that were touch friendly.The experience was awesome. I can’t say enough about Louis and his interaction with us, and especially my brother. The tour and Louis made my brothers trip. We is still telling everyone about his adventure.

This was a fun way to spend an hour or two onshore. Our guide was excellent and the adventure was well organized.
This was our first time snorkeling and we loved it. The guide gave us basic instructions - snorkeling is so easy and fun! This reef is small and enclosed so great for beginners - I am not sure if they will take you out somewhere else if you have more experience or not. They do have boats & equipment to do so. They had an underwater camera and emailed us pictures - super nice treat. All the staff were very friendly. They picked us up and dropped us back off, which was very nice. Showers, lockers, and towels available on site free of charge. The group ahead of us was runnint behind schedule so they bought us pina coladas (YUM) while we waited (about 10-15 mins). That was fine by us, the beach was a beautiful place to relax.
My family and I had a great time snorkeling, the guide met us near the ship and led us on an awesome time.
Guide was wonderful
