Easy, interesting snorkeling. Shipwreck is interesting, and the turtles and colorful fish are great to see. and we saw a sting ray. Good crew on the Castaway Girl, and great snacks and refreshments.

We had orginally booked a different snorkeling trip at St Thomas but I didn't look at my shore excursion ticket very well and we missed the time to depart on the shore excursion that I purchased. So, thank goodness, they allowed us to "trade up" (for a higher price) to another shore excursion. It was the Buck Island Catamaran and Snorkeling Tour. I don't recommend this one if you want to go snorkeling to see fish and coral at St Thomas. We loved the catamaran sailing experience but the snorkeling sucked! We didn't see anything underwater.

We booked independently a bus to take us and pick us up from the boat rental location that was approx 20 min from port. We booked two boats to take our party of 18 out snorkeling and to a private beach. This company was awesome in service! The private beach was perfect to just chill and enjoy the beautiful scenary. We were taken to two locations to snorkel. The water was beautiful. Our pictures we took will keep the memories alove forever. Read Less

There were problems with the boat and we ended up on a different one than planned and the trip was cut short. we did a slow sail by the main harbour and town and then went to water island where we snorkelled and again seen and were able to swim with turtles. was ok and we did get a partial refund but was bit disappointing. Would have been much worse had we not seen the turtles! Read Less

Sail Date: December 2017
This was a total waste of time and money. There were way too many people in the group and it was a long way to the snorkel site. Once we arrived, our time in the water was very limited and there wasn't much to see either.

Went to Honeymoon beach and snorkeling. Unfortunately it rained pretty heavy for about an hour. The beach was still not the best because of the recent hurricane. But overall we enjoyed ourselves.

We took a catamaran to an island to explore and snorkel a shipwreck. The drinks are always diluted on these things which is annoying. The staff was ok, but typically expect a tip instead of feeling they have to earn it.
