This is a fun event - being out on the ocean, listening to music, dancing, drinking and eating for 2 hours. I recommend it for a relaxing and yet energizing evening!

No, they don't offer scuba. They do have snorkel tours, sunset tours, and private charters, even, I believe, a stargazing cruise. Check out their website for options.
