Amazing experience with the doors off! Beautiful scenery and you get to see a lot of the island. We got a little more than the 45 mins :) Cat, our guide was wonderful. If you’re afraid of heights and don’t like turbulence, I wouldn’t recommend.

We were well treated by excellent crew - Chris, Quinn and Tyler. Lots of Dolphins, and saw a number of different fish at the snorkeling site - including a sea turtle. Exactly as written in the ad for the trip. Well worth the money
