“This is the one! Best private experience with my family. Matt was super patient, extremely professional, and showed us a great time. We saw everything we came for including a few sharks, sting ray, barracuda, and plenty of tropical fish. Even got in the water with us to chase after some fish. Took us to an island to relax in the sun and enjoy some fun. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to enjoy a day on the water.” – Michele P.

Frequently Asked Questions – Snorkel Tours

Learn more about Saltwater Seafari snorkeling tours and more! Below we answer common questions so you can come prepared and have fun!

What should I expect on the day of my snorkel tour?

On the evening prior to your trip, we will confirm with you via text to provide additional information regarding our location, as well as instructions regarding where to meet your captain. If there are any concerns with weather, we will notify you ahead of time to keep you informed of any potential changes. Once you arrive at our location, we will greet you to board the boat and head out on the water for your excursion with us.

What should I bring to my snorkeling tour?

On your trip you may bring any snacks or drinks that you would like. If you are traveling with your own snorkeling gear, you are welcome to bring it with you. We have plenty of storage on board, so plan to bring a beach bag with your towels, sunscreen, cameras, and any other supplies you would like to bring with you.

How does pricing work?

Pricing is for a private boat for up to 6 passengers. Per coast guard regulations, we can take 6 passengers per boat. This also includes infants and children.

Are there any age restrictions on the snorkeling trips?

We welcome all ages on our trips. Our sandbar and island excursions are best suited for small children, as we will visit many shallow areas for children to wade and play in the water along the sandbars.

Our snorkeling trips take place in depths that range from 7-30 feet depending on the location. We are happy to assist little ones with a snorkeling experience as much as possible.

You are responsible for understanding your child’s skill and comfort level in the water. We provide life jackets for everyone and welcome pool noodles if you would like to bring one with you.
