Do the private snorkel tour! - We had an amazing time on our private snorkel trip! The drop off location is easy to find and the guides were helpful and prompt. Tyler was incredibly knowledgeable. We had a great all-around experience. We saw many fish, sharks, jellyfish and even a crab. Tyler let us explore at our own pace and brought us to the best snorkeling spots. 10/10 would recommend the private snorkel trip for anyone!

Good Vibes! - Great bunch of people! There was a positive vibe from the get go. We had Ellie for a guide. She was amazing! Incredibly knowledgeable and informative! If i can offer any kind of constructive input, i would say use the paddle board for first timers. My daughter’s mask would not seal causing us to call it quits after 45 mins. Having a way to get out of the water, catch her breath and readjust Her equipment would have been gigantic. If you want a good, positive experience, I would totally Recommend!!

Fun and relaxing - Fantastic time. Very very patient and chill guided tour. Excellent info on the fish and what we might see. Tyler grabbed a couple of puffer fish from the bottom and brought them to the surface so we could see close up. Also a conch shell and a small lobster. Perfect amount of time, it lasted one hour. Easy to snorkel because you floated with the current and could just relax and enjoy the reef. Nothing to tire you out. Definitely would recommend!!!

Snorkeling right off the beach was awesome. A short swim offshore to see the oceans treasures was priceless. - Tyler was awesome ! We saw some cool things, the puffer and the eel were the highlight! We had a blast swimming with the fishes. Thank you John and Tyler for a great experience!

Amazing staff and experience! Would definitely go back! - SquareGrouper has the Best staff ever! This was our first family vacation(besides camping/fishing throughout MN with our 9, 11, and 14 yr old kiddos). 1st of all, we arrived too late to take our scheduled snorkeling tour due to us underestimating multiple traffic delays and figuring out parking and meet-up location. JON (I hope that's the right name), personally took time out of his day to meet up with us/ help us find the meet up spot, and checked with his staff (TYLER) to add a tour time for just us 5 since we wouldn't be able to reschedule the following day due to unfavorable forecasted weather. I couldn't believe he went out of his way like that to provide a fun family experience for us!!! Tyler did a fantastic job ensuring we had fun snorkeling even though the water was murky. He was so kind and patient to us first time snorkelers and taught us so much about the coral reef and fish, and even took some photos for us. There was also a gal staff member, I forgot her name, super sweet and helpful and fun to talk to, that helped teach us about our equipment ahead of time, and then ask about things afterwards and chit-chat. Everyone was so wonderful!! I would highly recommend snorkeling with this fantastic team of people!! Thank you so, so much!! 💓

Excellent Snorkeling Experience - This was such a great time! Tyler, our personal guide, was fantastic. He made sure everyone was set before we even headed to the water. And was always thoughtful on how to make the experience all about everyone on trip. We will definitely be doing this again with them!
