Boat was large and well stocked. Dive guides were knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and even entertaining. Captain was approachable, personable and friendly.

Firstly, let me say that it is the responsibility of each diver to check their gear, even rental gear, thoroughly. And, it is the dive buddy's responsibility (especially when s/he has much more experience) to double check that the diver has checked. But, I would ask you, even though we did a general check, how many of you check that the dumb valve on the rear of the BC is functioning when you rent gear? So, I beleive the dive shop shares responsibility and in the hurried pick-up and get to the dive boat, one trusts that some thorough checks are made prior to renting gear. Unfortunately that was not our experience and it led to a potentially (although in our case, not) catastrophic in-water incident. Apart from that, the shop owner's offer (after I called and complained) of a $15 refund on a $361 trip cost seems to reinforce that Pura Vida doesn't take the issue seriously. I would have expected perhaps something closer to $50 (the cost of the BC rental and two of our 4 tanks), plus perhaps the offer of a free or reduced price trip with them in the future.

What happened? The vent on the rear of the BC was non functional. So, when the less experienced diver who was likely slightly under-weighted becames fins up on the second half of the dive, neither the dive master nor I could vent the air and by the time we righted the diver, we were already at 20 feet, at which point we called the dive.

My husband, myself and our 10 year old enjoyed the best paddle board expedition ever! Marissa was so informative, friendly and helpful throughout our Eco tour, she really put us at ease. Unfortunately we only took an hour tour but next time we will definitely do a 2 hour tour. Marissa showed us so much wildlife (rays,crabs,osprey,pelicans,puffer fish,horseshoe crabs,sea turtle...)If we missed something, she would help us circle around to see it. Marissa also took several pictures of our family for us and gave us tips on how to paddle board more efficiently since we are just beginners. A must do for anyone in the area!!!

Lake Worth Inlet

A fishing spot in southern Florida.

Reviewed By Cathy E - Peoria, Illinois

The walkway along the north side of the inlet is public property. It parallels the entrance to Palm Beach harbor/Lake Worth. It is paved, and wide enough that bicycles can pass the pedestrians strolling, or the joggers going out for their daily run. The walkway is not terribly long (maybe 5 blocks), but it is a nice component in a walk or run. There are a few benches along the way, if you want to watch the jet skis, fishing boats, yachts, cargo boats, or the occasional cruise ship enter or leave port.

Reviewed By JHLuvtotravel - Staten Island, New York

My friends and I visited the gorgeous Flagler Museum and we weren't disappointed. Henry Flagler was a extremely interesting man who used his great riches to make Florida the place to visit in the early 1900's. Not only did he create train travel to Florida but he also built wonderful hotels, hospitals and churches. Certainly a man with a vision for what Florida would become.

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park

Reservations accepted the working day after Memorial Day. Groups limited to 25 people.

Reviewed By Zaphod - Shepherdstown, West Virginia

The park itself is well-described by other reviewers. I highly recommend that you stop by the Visitor Center when you visit. It is small, but includes thorough coverage of the local natural history and exhibits of live fish, snakes and sea turtles. I was especially appreciative of the descriptions of the three species of mangroves ... I tend to forget how to identify them between visits to the area. There was also an interesting art exhibit when we were there - sculptures and paintings of local species and habitats.
