Very safe snorkeling stops. Good lunch. Fun staff. No swimming with dolphins but we did see lots. Banana boat ride was a lot of fun. The water is quite cold this time of year. Definitely take a thin wetsuit. Corals in the area not looking great but still lots of fish. A bit of pressure to buy their photos. I would recommend it for the price it's good value.

TOP excursion for the whole family

Contact on the previous day was not quite smooth, but we were picked up as originally described and taken to the starting point after a quick but pleasant trip. Received snorkeling equipment, had to change to a different boat a few times, but after that everything went really well. Boat well equipped, enough shady spots, crew very friendly. Our leader "Nemo" was extremely personable, spoke good German and looked after our children (12 + 9) very well, especially in the water. All in all we stopped 3 times for snorkeling, beautiful coral spots + lots of fish, you couldn't see enough to eat (it was the first time for us). Good lunch in between. Then look for dolphins and swim with them twice. Although you have to know that smaller children cannot do this ... you have to jump out of the boat and swim quickly to get a chance to see dolphins. Short banana boating + lots of photos + videos. Been great!

As already reported by others here, everything really fits on this excursion. Pick up on time, ride in the shared bus as always, but safe. Allocation to the ships went quite quickly, equipment is distributed on site if necessary. Then departure and greeting by Jamaica and its crew. Watching dolphins was the first point, all in peace and without stress. Then go snorkeling for the first 45 minutes. Absolutely fascinating place. Now a delicious lunch, a short break, the ship moved a bit and back into the water. After a good 30 minutes we went to the next stop. At the end you can go banana boating. All super nice, friendly, without stress. Of course, photographers should not be missing. Negotiate price! Anyone who books here will not go wrong. Very happy again !!!!!!!! Thank you
