Has anyone been on the Carribean Queen Snorkel Tour?
If so, what did you think of it?

If this helps anyone, I have snorkeled at Athol Island National Marine Park but off a different boat than the Caribbean Queen. The water there is about 15-20 feet deep. Our guide provided all equipment but we brought our own. The water was very calm and warm (we were there in August) and the fish all of the tame variety. We didn't see a great variety of fish but the different coral were very interesting. The water was also very salty, compared to where I've snorkeled before, so it was quite easy to float and difficult to dive down. We have snorkeled at John Pennekamp State Park in the Florida Keys in April and the water was cold and choppy, the coral reef was off-limits (dangerously sharp), and we saw a shark. Compared to that, Athol Island was a very easy and safe snorkel trip. If I remember correctly Athol island is at the other end of Nassau harbor from where the ships dock, so you get to see other boats several waterfront mansions on the way there.
