Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long will I be able to snorkel?
  • The average time in the water is 2.5 hours – that is taking into account travel time to the Bay and the orientation video from the Bay itself.

  • Is 2.5 hours enough time?
  • The time selected is based on what the average guest needs to fully enjoy the Bay without over-tiring. Some tire a little sooner and others wish to stay longer. Please consider other transportation options if you want to stay all day.

  • We are a transportation company that provides extras like snorkeling equipment, flotation, and tips on where and how to snorkel. Your time at the beach is self-directed.
