"The captain and snorkel instructor were very friendly, informative and competent. I felt like I learned about the area as well as snorkeling. When we arrived at our snorkeling destination, due to the 4th of July activities, there were many visitors on the beach and in boats blocking us in. The Captain quickly and authoritatvely cleared the area making our experience flawless.The snorkeling experience was beautiful. Clear water, a variety beautiful fish - even got to feed them peas!"

Exciting Under Water Adventure
" Went snorkeling with Pelican Adventures on 8/13/11 and had a blast! Captain G and her First Mate John Boy made our trip informative and entertaining. From teaching us how to feed the fish (with very expensive super secret fish food (frozen peas)) to diving down and finding us a sea urchin to handle, John Boy was always there to guard our safety and ensure that we had a good time. And lets not forget Rose at the front desk who can guide you in from anywhere! (Just give her a call) Thanks for a great time and terrific memories! Here are some pictures from that day.
