  • "The water is very murky and stirred up so you really can't see much through the glass, be sure to bring some flip flops or water shoes, the Island is VERY coarse and hurts your feet." See review

A family experience we won’t forget.

Such a fun day out. Crew where very knowledgeable. Made us feel very safe. Our kids had an amazing day. The length of time was perfect for the kids as they where zonked. We saw plenty of beautiful coral, plenty of fish and ever a sea turtle. Would highly recommend. Our kids are 8,6 and almost 5. And even if you don’t snorkel the glass bottom boat painted a good picture and we saw plenty of ocean life from standing on the beach of the isle.

The trip out to Low Isles was fantastic. I have two family members who do not love boating and were concerned with a big trip. The short, 40 mins out to Low Isles was perfect for them. The snorkeling was fantastic with lots of coral, fish and more than a few green sea turtles. Crew and guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Great boat trip out to Low Isles, beautiful fish and Coral when snorkeling. I liked the fact you could look through the glass bottomed boat at a leisurely pace once out at the island then snorkel!

The guys who ran this tour were excellent! We took the Half Day Afternoon tour to fit into our Princess cruise schedule. This was the only Snorkeling tour that left late enough so that we would have time to get off the ship and meet up with the tour. I would definitely NOT go on the afternoon tour again. They say it's less crowded, but the water was so cloudy and stirred up from all the boat and people traffic, it made it extremely difficult to see any fish clearly. We did see a bunch of turtles pretty clearly because they were at the top of the water. If you are on a cruise and trying to decide which stop to snorkel from, I would choose another island, somewhere more personalized and away from the crowds. It was super low tide (I saw someone else said this as well) and made it difficult to swim over the coral. There was almost no colored coral in this area except some green. If you decide to just do the glass bottom boat and not snorkel, this is not a great alternative option. The water is very murky and stirred up so you really can't see much through the glass, be sure to bring some flip flops or water shoes, the Island is VERY coarse and hurts your feet. There was a whole list of health questions they asked which seemed totally irrelevant to your ability to snorkel. Not sure why other than covering their butt! Diabetes does not interfere with snorkeling. The young lady that was leading the snorkel tour from the boat made the entire explanation very confusing and SCARY. We have snorkeled in very deep waters off many Islands and have never ever had this kind of experience. She scared many people to the point that they decided to take the glass boat and only snorkel off the shore. This was not necessary, If anyone needed help or got tired, they could have gotten right back on the glass bottom boat or swam to shore. They need to clean that up a little and make the information more clear. We did have a fun day. The Guys who drove and narrated were excellent and the equipment worked great. This is a budget tour that was not so easy on the budget!
