We were driven about 20 minutes to the spot where we boarded our mini boats. We were given life jackets and a instructions on how to drive the boats. We then drove through the bay very calmly until we hit the open ocean, this was AMAZING!!!! We had so much fun. Once we reached our snorkeling spot in Christmas Cove, our guide Greg tied all of our boats together and we had about an hour to snorkel. We saw tons of fish, sting rays, spotted eagle rays and even a barracuda. I would highly recommend this tour!!! Our guides were knowledgeable and very cool!! Thanks for an Awesome Adventure!!!
This excursion was our favorate of the entire cruise, we did 4 during our trip and they were all great, The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a small group and that made it very personnal, friendly and fun. Saw a lot of fish, rays and a turtle. It was great fun and something I would recommend to anyone.

Review 3 for Mini Boat Adventure
I traveled with:Family
Date:February 3, 2013
Great guys who took us out. They were very safety first fun after. The mask and snorkel were good the flippers were poor. Bent from storage box. Boats need cleaning and a little maintainence. The area you are taken to has been abussed and for the most part is dead. It gets growded when a large snorkel boat shows up with a billion people. They need to find a spot of their own to go to for one to really see the beauty of a reef. There were some rays and some fish but not the best I have seen. For the money it could be better and it would not be very hard for the company to do just that. At the end they asked for a tip.
Did this excursion a few years ago and it was more fun this time. Guides were very helpful and driving your own boat is thrilling! Can be a bit bumpy, but that's what makes it fun (well padded seats helped, too). The snorkling was the best of any trip I've been on (outside of the South Pacific and Belize) with lots of colorful fish, even saw a stingray swim lazily along. Quite a bit of new, live coral to see which is rare and wonderful. Highly recommended!!
We had a great time on this excursion. It was a fun and exciting day, one we would love to do again some day. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Review 6 for Mini Boat Adventure
I traveled with:Family
Cruise Date Month:September
I want to go here next:Europe
Date:September 29, 2012
We took this excursion two weeks ago on a different cruise ship and it was the best day of our whole trip. Meagan and Josh were excellent staff and Meagan gave us a lot of history about the snorkeling. We happen to have a dolphin swimming around us the whole time and I got great underwater pictures. We are planning to do this excursion on our next trip which is in October on NCL and can't wait to do it again. My husband was like a kid again
This was terrific fun! The mini boats were well maintained, easy to pilot, and relatively comfortable in choppy waters. The snorkel site was very good with many different kinds of fish to see. Some even formed a school behind us and followed us everywhere we went. The excursion staff were great people who took the time to tell us a little about the history of the surrounding area. Megan was our lead guide and was very personable and did everything she could to make certain everyone had a very enjoyable experience.
This was a fun excursion that I would highly recommend as an alternative to just lying around on a beach or joining a hundred of your best friends for a bus tour around the island.
