We ended up being the only couple in the van! Smaller group excursions and less expensive than the ship sponsored ones. These tour guides are well aware of the ship arrival times so keep tabs of your travel. Zip lines, 9 zips, with 2 guides, fun. Then private beach area, small boat for 1 mile ride out to the snorkel area and private guide showed us nurse shark and brought up a lobster to see, saw an eagle ray below. Then had lunch waiting in their small restaurant on site. Fun day.

From start to finish this was a great excursion! The zip line was so much fun. Our guide was talkative and engaging. We had a small group so it went by way too fast. The snorkeling was new for me. I swallowed more salt water than I needed to but enjoyed the underwater views. And lunch was wonderful, oh so GOOD!!
The guys were great on the zip line and it has 2 lines you hock on to so felt safe. The Snorkeling was a nice beach area with a restaurant that we swam at as others did horseback riding. We went out in a boat to the reef and the guys snorkel with you.

This was my first time zip-lining, and definitely the longest one my kids had ever been on. What a total blast! The guides were helpful, friendly, and made sure everyone had a good time. I wish we could have gone on the longest ones last instead of first, but that's not the way mountains work! Lunch at the beach was delicious and my teenagers loved playing with the puppies hiding under the bar. This was all of our first time snorkeling, so it would have been nice if the guide had given some tips on how to minimize salt-water intake (pro-tip: try to keep your ears above water and your snorkel will follow). Otherwise, this was an unforgettable adventure.

This was the highlight of our trip. We loved the entire excursion and the tour guides were fabulous. The lunch was delicious fresh seafood on the beach. We had grilled lobster and shrimp. The ziplining was safe and super fun and the snorkeling was great too. I highly recommend this excursion!
