Depending on the wind conditions, we'll sail or motor to a calm cove for snorkeling.

You will snorkel near a reef accompanied by our snorkel guide. If time and location permits, you'll explore the beach. (If someone in your party does not want to snorkel, we can take them directly to the beach).

We were able to sail rather than motor most of the trip. The crew was very attentive and experienced. They brought us to snorkeling places with the most, although somewhat limited, marine wildlife. We could view a very nice sunset on the return trip.

Depends on the number of people going from the resort. We had six, so they picked up and dropped off at the resort beach.
