This was a great adventure we booked while on vacation!! Mark and Nora were our guides, they kept it fun and entertaining the whole time. They informed us about the marine life and history behind the rock caves. Loved this experience and would book it again in a heart beat.

The whole experience was very well organized and overall a great time. I recommend the snorkel and kayaking tour to anyone who is wanting a more personal and hands on view of the caves and a look at what is under the water surface. Mark and Nora our guides were very knowledgeable and kept the group engaged the entire trip.
