While the Coral Kai boat was fairly small, the highlight of this experience was not the vessel -- it was the turtles. Even after days of rain and some reduce visibility (I assume) because of that, we still saw quite a few sea turtles. They hung out at the bottom, around 20-30 feet down, surfaced (including in the middle of our group) and poked their heads up out of the water. The crew was friendly and even helped non-swimmers have a good time. And the equipment seemed to be clean (sanitary) and in good condition.

We had so much fun! We saw bunches of colorful, tropical fish all around us and a sea turtle even swam right up next to me. The staff were super friendly and helpful. One dove down to grab a sea urchin and let me hold it. They were also great about pointing out where the turtles were and helping less experienced swimmers to feel more comfortable. Easily one of the coolest things I've ever done and I would recommend it without hesitation. Really amazing.
