I had seen the 65.00 package with transportation and we were very ready to book, then I got a quote that was different than the one I saw from June.
We are going off ship excursions to get something affordable. We do have a budget. This place looks awesome but not sure if we can go now. I usually don't eat much on excursions to beach so I could have done it without the food but it was not offered in my quote.
Honestly, it's very clear that this business is trying to figure out what works best for it. The only way they will figure it out is to see how many people are choosing to book at each price point that they offer.

Personally, if I were considering this this location, I'd send the business another email. I would tell them flat out that posts on Cruise Critic suggest that there seems to be very little consistency with the quoted rates and packages. Let them know that other cruisers have recently reported being quoted $38pp for ??? (insert exact details of the $38 package). Then ask them if they would be willing to honor that price for your family.

There's no harm in trying.

I agree with rockbock. It couldn't hurt to try emailing them again. They are relatively new and relying largely on word of mouth. We are paying the $65 price - which includes transport in my quote - and are very excited about this place. Good luck

We signed up for the $65 package a couple of weeks ago.
Hopefully they will honor that.

Could someone please post the new price structure?

I get the feeling, from what folks who have been there have said, that they will honor what they quoted you. I printed out my email confirmation from them (always do that anyway for any outside tour i book)

We are just back from the Carnival Dream (7/7-7/14).

This place is amazing!!!! We did the $65 deal. I will post a true review once we are unpacked and settled, but I can't explain to you how much we enjoyed our day here. We had our two kids, and it was a blast for them too.

As rockbock suggested - send them an email and explain what you found here on CC and ask if they can provide you the $65 price which includes transportation. worked for me!

I'd love to read your review of this place as well - as I'm also considering taking the Victor Bodden private tour of the island w/ zipline and West Bay Beach in lieu of French Key. I'm torn ...maybe this will seal it for good.

We had also booked a group of six for the original price of $65 pp and after seeing all of the pricing changes i went ahead and emailed them to confirm or booking for the original amount, with transportation to and from, with Non-motorized water equipment. They will honor it if you have it booked previously.

This place is AMAZING .... Was this earlier this week... JUST AMAZING....worth the money. I think the only thing that will hurt this place is when everyone finds out about it and it gets too many people. Unleash he puts a number of people on it. Everyone is really nice and they want you to have fun. Great food. Great drink.

The guy that owns it even comes around and makes sure you are doin ok and have everyhing.

The dogs are are pretty bad a** to lol... Cute...Haha
