“The best way to see a fish, is to become a fish.” -Jacques Cousteau
Slip off of our swim platform and into another world, where you’ll observe a wondrous diversity of life in the last habitat that we haven’t made our own. You’ll be captivated by the snappers, angelfish, eels, crabs, lobsters, sponges and corals amongst others, and your understanding of our world will deepen. Your mate will accompany you, casting an experienced eye on the surroundings, there to help explain and unmask this novel ocean setting.
“Ours is truly a blue planet - Water covers most of the world’s surface. Here, we are outsiders” -David Attenborough Life of Fish
Your Mate hops into the water with you and helps identify and point
out the animals that live underwater. Because of this, they demand that
we take them to the spot that has the best conditions for the current

Our Mates are Your Guides
Over the years, we have tried LOTS of different brands of gear and we have finally found our match for adults and Junior snorkel masks. We use Cressi F1 masks for their comfort, effectiveness and durability. These are the same masks that you would find in the crew’s bag for personal trips. Because if it is good enough for our guests, then it is definitely good enough for us! For childrens masks we are currently using the Akona Joey, and have a selection of googles on board. As kids are so unique in their sizes and also their comfort with getting in the water, we try and have an assortment of options on board to serve them.

Our snorkeling spots change by the season and sometimes by the day.
Our experience has taught us that our guests have the best time when we
take them to a location offering the calmest and the clearest water for
the weather conditions. Sometimes this is a barrier reef or a gulfside
patch reef and other times a shallow water sponge garden; wherever we
decide to snorkel, our guests, both beginners and experienced, enjoy the
experience so much that they often stay in the water for up to an hour.
Our family went on the Kayak and Snorkel tour. It was fantastic! The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and capable. Our family loves to snorkel and this was a new type of area for us (sponge gardens), it was so cool! Saw a lot of critters. The snacks provided were fresh and perfect for after snorkeling. The group size is kept small, so we had the boat to ourselves. The kids loved it - we are going on the Dolphin Watch next!
Our entire experience was great. The new hybird boat SQUID is pretty cool and in pristine condition. The size and shape of boat allows you to go to shallower areas that some of the other larger boats can’t go.
Katie was so knowledgeable about all the sea life. You could tell she was passionate about her work.
We snorkeled the sponge gardens of a National Preserve. Katie went in with us and showed us some things we probably wouldn’t have noticed without her. Also, of note, Honest Eco’s snorkeling gear was really nice and worked/fit well.
After snorkeling, Katie created a fruit tray to die for! The whole experience was very personable and intimate. Would highly recommend for couples or families. Note: we were traveling with our 13 yr. old.
