We took the Eco Lagoon Tour last year, and were a little disappointed. This isn't to say it is a bad tour, the tour guide had a lot of good info to impart. What disappointed us was the boat itself. The driver, IMHO, was not very good, and kept having to back up and re-position the boat. Every time she did, the engine kicked a zillion bubbles under the boat (glass bottom), so you couldn't see what she was trying to position the boat over. Added to that, the "glass" was rather dirty, so the view was a bit cloudy, never mind trying to focus a camera, and with the shallow water, by the time you saw something interesting, you passed over it in about 2-3 seconds.
All that being said, keep in mind, I am an experienced snorkeler, so compared to what I have seen while in the water, this was pretty low key. Your kids, for whom this may be a first experience, it may be good, though if they like swimming, I would recommend the "Snorkel By Boat" excursion as a much more enjoyable one. You don't get the guided tour explaining things, but what you will see in the water is so much more exciting. (If you are going to Grand Turk, "Ultimate Snorkel" is even better.)
I may be an adult,but I REFUSE to grow up!!!
Unfortunately, none at the moment
