    My favorite is with the company Pelican. They are located on the Pier in front of the Holiday Inn. If you go on a Sunday they have a Champaign brunch which is very nice. Its also a long trip and very fun!

    thanks in advance.
    We've done the Depalm boat, Palm Pleasure, 6x, both sunset and snorkel.
    The snorkel makes 2 stops, provides equip, food, open bar. Love the boat...100 ft, don't feel like you packed like sardines on the boat. Lots of open space, 2 lg. nets to hang out on, etc....I put pict. on the gallery here, take a look. Sunset cruise is beautiful, great photo ops....that is more adult-ish, snorkel is more family-ish.....well worth the $ they charge.

    paul and i booked our son kevin and his bride becca on the tranquillo.
    they are doing the drift snorkel on dec 29

    i expect they will have a blast.
    i have never heard a negative comment about anthony, his boat, his business or the food/beverage onboard.

    i expect anyone that tries it will LOVE it.

    sounds good.. sent a message to book so hopefully everything will work out. he said we will snorkel in waist deep water and then drift snorkel along the reef. i can't wait. i like the places where the pirates took us but am looking forward to seeing something different.

    You will not regret the Tranquilo! And do jump on the bow for a wonderful breeze, drinks will come up through the hatch!

    North end of the Riu property. Enter the beach via the De Palm "walkway/alley" that runs from the street out to the beach. Captain Anthony ferries passengers via inflatable from the beach there on the south side of De Palm Pier out to the anchored sailboat.
