This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. The snorkeling in Catalina Bay was spectacular with a wide variety of fish and crystal clear water. There's a slight current, but nothing too difficult to overcome. The water is about 15 feet deep and my 14-yr-old son was able to swim to the bottom and touch the sand. My 9-year-old son was comfortable in the water with a float vest and he was even able to use his swim mask and see lots of fish. We also had plenty of time there to explore. The second stop was the shipwreck. There's no current there, but the water is choppy because it's farther out to sea. Again, it was crystal clear and the deepest blue and the view of the wreck was spectacular. Every time I looked down I screamed and giggled. It was so exciting! There were some fish there, I think, but I wasn't really paying attention to them. My daughter swam farther away to towards the front of the wreck and she was pretty sure she saw a barracuda lurking in a shadow. She dove down towards the ship, but it's much deeper - about 50 feet - so she didn't get close to it. The crew on the ship were extremely helpful and informative (and funny). The drinks were good and seemed to be a little stronger with a little tip. They brought snacks around several times - fruit, empanadas, and pigs in a blanket. The trip out to the cove and the wreck was very smooth on the catamaran. There's a sizable covered portion to stay out of the sun. The front features a net where you can sit and the view through it was even good enough for my 13-year-old who wasn't interested in snorkeling. We've done several excursions through various tour companies and I was pleased with Red Sail Tours. Overall this was a really great experience and I highly recommend it.

Had a great time on the boat. Staff was very friendly. The snorkel site near the shipwreck had a very strong current. The staff doesn't provide any instruction on snorkeling which was ok with us but would be nice for beginners. Overall I would highly recommend this trip

This trip was wonderful- aside from the car forgetting to pick us up! We took a cab real quick to the pier which ends up we could have walked to from the Ritz. I cannot fault the sail crew for this! They were great and let you do your own thing! Snacks for delish, snorkeling was awesome, and drinks were flowing.

A nice relaxing outing! Boat was comfortable and snacks were more than expected. Liked how we were given background info about the shipwreck!! Those who viewed the Antilla shipwreck came back very excited! Was impressed how the crew made sure people were comfortable with the choppy conditions before gong in the water.
