    My kids loved the experience and captain. Very experienced and fun! The company is not professional though. The check in booth attendants were more interested in talking with their friends than helping customers. Then, after our departure time came and went, we just sat there, with many others, having no idea what was going on. Our trip ended up leaving 15 minutes late, which would be acceptable if even one person came to explain what was happening, when we were leaving, or if we were ever leaving. When it was time to board, there wasn’t an explanation or apology.

    Hal and Heather was amazing!! Very caring and nice!! We enjoyed it! But we could have enjoyed it more if it wasn’t for the jellyfish. It would have been nice to have known how bad they were so we could have done the tour another time . We had 10 in our party and 7 got stung.

    The jelly population can vary by day based on the tide. Therefore, we cannot predict when marine life will be present. Thanks for cruising with us!

    Loved the boat ride.

    Boat ride is great. Loved Captain Larry and First Mate Mark. They are incredible hosts. Crab Island is okay. Take floats, snorkles, and water proof cases for your phones.

    My trip

    It was easy to get to SunVentures check in and load the boat. Once we arrived at Crab Island, they did park a bit far from where everything was located though. Besides that, it was fine.
