This was a fantastic half-day trip for a family of three adults and three boys under age 10. We had a wonderful time looking for sea life, snorkeling, and fishing. Jim and Gollo did a fantastic job and we were impressed how they had thought of everything, even the little details like having both compost and recycle bins and re-usable cups that they had pre-labeled with each of our names. They knew just where to go to find sea turtles and dolphins and took us to a great snorkeling spot. They emphasized safety and cleanliness, and we felt very secure with them; Jim gave clear safety briefings, he trailed us in the water while we were snorkeling with safety equipment, and he had a fully stocked first-aid kit that came in handy when one of our party cut a foot while snorkeling. Gollo had a spread of fresh fruit, chips, and fabulous, delicious home-made dip ready for us when we came back from snorkeling, along with a nicely stocked cooler with drinks. They let each of the boys "drive" the boat and were generous, kind, and thoughtful. We would go out with them again in a heartbeat!

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Jaume and Gollo!! This was such a magical trip! During the booking process Jaume was very responsive and helpful which always makes me feel better. Then when we arrived he was so friendly and helpful and the boat was really clean and well kept. He made sure safety was discussed before we left the harbor. Gollo the captain was great and kept the boat slow and steady which was great for my young daughter and older mother in law. Within ten minutes of being out on the water we saw dolphins!! Then about 10 minutes later we got to experience a humpback calf playing in the shallows with its mother. It was incredible!! After that Jaume and Gollo took us to this great little secluded cove where my 6 year old daughter was able to snorkel for the first time!! There were tons of fish. And the ocean was so calm. Jaume showed us a bunch of cool animals and was always close by in the water with a safety float which made me as a father always feel safe with my family. After we snorkeled and did some stand up paddle, we took a slow cruise back to harbor enjoying the fresh fruit and homemade banana bread provided. This was such an amazing experience. It really is true… LIFE IS BETTER AT SEA!!!

Captain Jim did an amazing job catering to our family of 7. Our kids range from 22 to 6 and they all had a blast. Captain Jim had suggestions but let us make decisions as to what we wanted to do. He was very accommodating. And the lunch, the lunch may have been our best meal of our week.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at sea with Jim! All the details of the day were prefect. We snorkeled, paddle boarded, hung out on the beaches, and explored the area. Would definitely return for another day at sea!

This was a fantastic experience. They were so friendly, easy going, yet very professional. We would absolutely go with them again. Snorkeling was a blast and the snacks with a personal touch were perfect.
