We were running late and were told we had a minute to get to the boat. It wasn't supposed to leave for another 17 minutes. We hurried up, and waited for 15 minutes. Then they let us on the boat. We sped off crashing through the waves. We barely had time to put our shoes and other stuff underneath us. The boat was going so fast through the rough waters and if I didn't hold on to the railings I would have come out of my seat many times. Shortly after we started, one of the crew starting putting life jackets on another party. While we were speeding through rough waters far away from land. I couldn't believe they were just now providing us with safety measures. I believe, the 15 minutes we were waiting for them to let us on board, would have been the time to get us in our life preservers. Not when we are way out from land. Especially considering how rough the waters were. The only reason they got 2 instead of 1 star is because they decided to cancel because the waters were too rough.

A great experience! I'm sorry I don't recall the names of the two gentlemen who hosted the tour, but they were very nice and made sure everyone was comfortable with their experience.

Fantastic. They are so professional and you are raised by the chute directly off the boat unlike Mexico where they drag you along the sand : Just wish it was longer in the air.
