I would have given 5 stars but did not love the Captain throwing crackers into the water and feeding the fish on top of my head. The reef is enough of a beautiful place to explore, highly recommend stopping that.

Great trip. Nice boat and good equipment. Captain was a really good host and very entertaining. Sombrero reef was everything that we had hoped for. Great value for money compared with anything out of Key West. Nick, Nottingham UK
