I would go again. The only bad thing was they only have 5 songs they played. Yes, Keys West songs just need more.

The weather was too windy for Sombrero Reef so they took us to Pirate's Cove. While the Capt Roger and Jena were great and they have no control over Mother Nature - I wish we would have passed on Pirate's Cove. My son did see...More

Thanks for the five stars. You do have to be a patient snorkeler to see the beauty of Pirates Cove. It's a different eco system. Please do come back and snorkel again when the weather is better and we can get out to the reef.
