Why choose Acquarius? Why our guests keep coming back.....
Return transport from the Cruise Terminal and condo/hotels along the Seven Mile Beach stretch. No fuss - no muss - we will pick you up for your tour in lovely air-conditioned vehicles and return you safely to your accommodation after the tour.
NO OVER-CROWDING ON THE BOAT!
We can't emphasise this enough - we are licensed to carry 40 passengers but self-impose a limit of approximately 26 passengers (unless otherwise specifically requested in cases such as private charters) so that our guests can be super comfortable. That is not an easy promise to keep in these tough economical times, but we truly want our guests to have space to enjoy themselves. We invite you to think about that for a moment.....
AVOID THE CROWDS!
All our guests worry about whether the sites that we visit (snorkel spots and Stingray City Sandbar) are going to be crowded with huge cruise groups and other visitors. That is why, every single day, we choose different routes and timing for our stops - to avoid just this problem! Read the reviews - you will see for yourselves that we do a brilliant job of it!
TIME SPENT ON-BOARD IS AS ADVERTISED!
Booking a 3.5 hour tour with us really means that you get 3.5 hour on-board "Big John". Other operators might include transport time in the advertised "length of tour" - in these cases actual time spent on the boat is less than advertised.
We serve iced water/fruit punch free of charge. Being out in the salty Caribbean waters works up a thirst, and the snorkeling and sea breeze work up quite an appetite - you are welcome to bring along your own snacks.
FREE DOWNLOADABLE PHOTOS OF YOUR TOUR!
Captain Mario does his best to make sure he gets great photos of you at Stingray City Sandbar, under-water shots of you snorkelling and Starfish Point Beach (if this is included in your tour). We invite you to bring along your own camera - you can never get enough pics of these wonderful memories! These photos are made available to you on-line a few days after your tour. You simply send in your request via an on-line request form, and VOILA! they are yours to download free of charge - download all of them or none at all - its your choice! We include over 30 of our favourite photos for you - so you usually end up with an average of 40 photos of the trip. Not bad when you've been charged nothing for it, right? Every single photo featured on our website has been taken on actual tours and made available to our guests.
FREE SQUID TO FEED THE STINGRAYS!
What's the use of feeding stingrays if you don't have the food to feed them? We provide the squid (which we call stingray popcorn) for free, so that you can enjoy this experience to the full. Not all operators provide it for free, and some don't take it at all. That kind of sucks.
FREE SNORKELLING EQUIPMENT FOR ALL AGES!
Snorkelling equipment is provided free of charge to everyone on-board. We have snorkelling equipment for all ages and sizes. It is kept in excellent condition, and it is kept clean. You are more than welcome to bring your own equipment, but at least you know if you don't feel like packing everything for the tour - it is all there. We also have swimming aids and "floaties" - these are for the less confident swimmers and the little kiddies - why should anyone miss out on all the fun?
CLEAN FULL BATHROOM ON-BOARD!
For you ease of comfort and peace of mind - a nice full bathroom that is kept clean and hygienic.
COMFORT AND SPACE IN ANY WEATHER!
Our boat "Big John" was specifically chosen so that our guests can enjoy their trip - irrespective of weather conditions - and many have them have been so thankful for this! Tropical rains can be highly unpleasant when you have no protection from it, and sometimes the Caribbean sun can get overwhelming. "Big John" offers something for everyone - the sun worshippers love the bow, the more social guests love the flybridge where they can "shoot the breeze" with the crew and hear interesting stories - mums love the large interior cabin where there is space for kiddies to play around safely.......thanks "Big John" for always being just perfect!
