Those who can’t swim (or prefer to get some rest and relax) can watch the beauty of the ocean floor through the glass bottom of the boat.

Snorkels and snorkeling masks are provided on board, as well as an endless selection of soft drinks and bottled water. Beer is also served after the snorkeling portion of the tour is complete, so that guests can sit back and enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
