“Wow…a FABULOUS trip!!! I would say it was one of our favorites of all time. We loved being active every day and hiking and snorkeling and discovering all of the beauty of the islands. The naturalist was fantastic. He could answer all of our questions and knew a lot about the animals and their habits. He was with us on every excursion and we learned so much from him.” T.O., AZ 2016
