Wonderful trip. The guide was so good that everyone could see the dolphins and the hammer shark close up. The beautiful caves of St. John’s were also wonderful. We were all satisfied when the crew were all settled down to eat and relax. Facilities of ship were good, too. Guides and crew take care of the passengers’ minor things.” Recommended for: Guides, Crews, diving operation.
