    If you only have 3 days....

    one of those days need to be snorkeling.. however, getting in/out of boats sometimes can be tricky with a bad knee. So if anyone has any suggestions as to which snorkeling boat (ie. JP) makes it easy to get in/out, let me know. Also, what days to cruise ships come in?

    Website lists all ships.

    As to the steps...They are all going to have them Just went back and saw that you were also considering the Tranquilo besides Jolly Pirates.

    Jolly Pirate has a ladder but the guys will assist you.

    Tranquilo has a ladder to get up the side of the boat from the dinghy. If you choose to participate in the drift snorkel you have to climb a few steps to get up onto their dock. The opposite side, there are again the same to get back into the water on the ocean side (other side of the barrier island).

    We enjoyed the Depalm boat. Its an easy "on" when the boat departs, like 2 steps up onto the boat. When the boat stops for its snorkeling they lower the ladder down on the catamaran and you exit that way. Part way down the ladder is in the water. The ladder is medal, not wood. That particular boat sits 8 feet off the water. Also in the back of the catamaran are several wide steps on each side to get up on.We highly enjoyed that boat many many times. Other boats have the rope swing business and I don't know how easy it is to get on/off and out of the water.

    If you only have 3 days and a bad knee, imo just do Baby Beach for your snorkeling, breakwater, no waves and plenty of fish, plus you just walk in! Stay inside the breakwater, strong current.
