Reef Snorkel Was Great! TripAdvisor

Went out on the reef snorkeling trip with Captain Dawn and Brandon. Had a fantastic time! They were engaging, informative and fun. Boat was super clean and they take pride in keeping it that way. Just an overall great experience! We will certainly book again next time we’re in Marathon.

Great Snorkel Adventure TripAdvisor

Had a fantastic snorkel excursion for a family group of 15. Captain Dawn and Brandon kept things flowing so there was plenty of water time, and kept a constant lookout safety-wise. Would highly recommend .this trip to anyone in the Marathon area.

Great Snorkel Trip! TripAdvisor

Enjoyed the snorkel trip to Sombrero Reef. A good variety of fish to see and the pontoon boat was not too crowded. Capt Dawn and the first mate were very attentive and ensured everyone had what they needed.

Such An Amazing Time! TripAdvisor

We did all of the activities they offered, the sunset cruise with Brandon and an amazing captain (I can’t remember his name, I’m sorry!) We also did the snorkel and sandbar with Allison and Katy, who were so much fun to hang out with! If I could put 10 stars, I would! This is definitely a must do if you are visiting!!
