We had a blast! It took me awhile to get used to the noodle in the middle of the ocean. Like 20 minutes, I have a huge fear of sharks and the ocean. So I used this trip to help me get over that fear. Once I got the hang of it, I was snorkeling around seeing all kinds of schools of fish. The lunch wasn't buffet which I wish that it was, but the sandwiches were still yummy. The chicken curry salad and the macaroni salad was so good! We didn't go kayaking as we fell off the kayak twice and I gave up at that point. I figured if I fell twice, there's no way I'd make it to the refuge and back without falling a million more times. But I got to lay out in the sun on the boat while the rest of the crew and visitors went kayaking, which was nice to do! My husband enjoyed his time for sure. Captain Brian was really nice to paddle me back to the boat after learning of my biggest fear. No judgement from anyone! Vikash and Dan were great and any question we had, they answered, The bar was always open and thank god for that! We will return purely on the fact that these guys were awesome and just overall made our trip amazing!
