    The bus drive was okay (I would give one star less). I followed my group because I thought our guide would bring me to the right place, but apparently the rest of the group took their tours somewhere else. I did the dolphin and snorkeling tour with Fury Water Adventures. The boat tour was amazing - I went with Captain Anna and we saw dolphins very close to the island, that’s why she took us out close to the reef snorkeling. After we were done snorkeling we were offered beer, wine, mimosas and sodas (they expect a tip at the end of the tour, but I would have tipped them anyways). We headed back with the bus at 6.15pm and I got off around 10.20pm in Miami Beach.
