I went to Curacao two summers ago and did the Bounty tour (on my own, not through a cruise line). Had a wonderful time. The ship anchored at two spots to snorkel and at one point they let down a rope swing for people to swing from the ship. The lunch served was delicious and plentiful. The crew was friendly and accomodating. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone. By the way, in my group, there were 2 teens and one 9 yr. old.
Thanks for your reply! How was the snorkeling? Did you see many fish? Also, was this kind of a party atmosphere, or more laid back? We'd be more excited about the sailing and snorkeling than the partying, LOL . This just seemed like a neat way to snorkel versus the typical "boat".
Again, I was crossing my fingers to find someone who had been on the Bounty - so I'm really appreciative of your reply.
The snorkeling was decent, but not the best I have ever done. One of the places they anchored at was over an old ship wreck which was interesting.
When I was on the Bounty, I did not feel it was a "party" atmosphere, however I guess that could change depending on who is on the Bounty with you. The rope swing was a lot of fun! The captain of the Bounty is so kind and very informative. He is actually the one who came and picked us up from our resort. Remember to bring plenty of sunscreen. They had plenty of snorkel equipment aboard, but we did bring our own just in case they didn't. Have fun!
