Best trip of our vacation
, Jan 2020
The Captain was fantastic! He knew exactly what he was doing. He asked us what we wanted to see and do and then he delivered! Sharks, Dolphins, Whales, and reef snorkeling! Very personable and plenty of contact prior to our trip to ensure the best experience! I would absolutely recommend Kris Henry!
