I was a little afraid at first doing this, looking at those big helmets kind of freaked me out. Once I got in the water and the helmet went on, I was escorted to the ocean floor. Below where we docked they have the area roped so you can't drift off. We were given a piece of bread in a... More

We arrived on the Celebrity Solstice in September and my boyfriend (21), little brother (11) and I (20) were signed up for this shore excursion. We were extremely nervous (mainly my brother and I) but the staff were really good about it all ensuring us that it was all safe and we would love it. Once we got into the... More

Visited off the Carnival Legend - and while I loved it and would honestly recommend other do it sadly it was a bit rushed for me (Cannot blame the company too much as they have a business to run) If you read the other reviews you will know what to expect. Breathtakingly beautiful. I could have happily stayed underwater for... More

Our guide was awesome! Tons of fish all around us. The wife hated the stingray, as it brushed up against her a few times and she was scared of it :). Tons of great underwater photos, the extra money for the flash drive with photos is worth it, regardless of whether you brought your own camera. Advice.. Be the first... More

This was an awesome tour and great experience. I'm not a big swimmer so this suited me fine. you don't even get a wet head. The fish come up close and the operator take photo you can purchase after. I would highly recommend this tour

My husband and I were a little skeptical of this activity but decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. This was an awesome experience and a lot of fun. There were so many species of fish as well as a stingray that kept swimming around us. The water is crystal clear and the view is... More

First off let me say that I don't swim and have an intense fear of drowning but THIS was INCREDIBLE! Artur the dive instructor made me feel very comfortable. The view down in the lagoon was breathtaking. The fish and rays are all around you as you view the plant life in the pristine water. You MUST do this!

My wife and I were both apprehensive but all those feelings faded rather quickly. As I entered the water I could not believe the colors of the fish and their willingness to come so close. A friendly stingray topped off the adventure as we were able to touch and feel it as it swam by. We want to go back... More

I was a little reluctant at first but am so very glad I overcame my fears and did this. The beautiful colour of the water and the amazing fish everywhere made for a wonderful experience. We also had 3 stingrays with us the whole time which was very special. The divers that are down with you point out things the... More
