The island was beautiful and the snorkeling was very good. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The lunch was delicious and plentiful. The included drinks had lots of tasty options. The highlight was the swimming pigs which made the trip unique compared to similar excursions we had done elsewhere.
Sandy toes full of smiles and 2 thumbs up

This was the absolute perfect day! Super friendly and well cared for pigs, with plenty of time to interact with them. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and amazing. Our first day was canceled by Sandy toes due to inclement weather and they were able to rebook us for the very next day while we were in person at the dock. Everything was smooth and would definitely go again!

Oh and solid drink options all day you are there! And the food was great too

The beach is really nice the pigs were very fun to be around and the staff was really enjoying and the food was tasty but the one. Employe said only on chicken leg or thigh but at the end all the employees had as much as they wanted so I paid two hundred and twenty four dollars for one chicken leg but someone who is getting paid Is having as much as they wanted plus i don't drink any alcohol but if i wanted a smoothie ihad to pay thirty dollars more maybe you should change those policies and make everyone happy
