I would avoid X-Stream as they have a "hidden" tax on their price of 8% that they don't tell you about in any of the on-line info - you only discover it after they confirm availability and you actually go to book/pay the deposit - so when comparing prices, keep this in mind.
Why not disclose this up front???
Seemed like a scam to me. No other tubing tour operator charges this.
Instead, we booked with Coral Breezes - received great service (excellent emails, confirmation, etc.).
There are lots of independant companies out there - do a bit of research/searches, etc... Caveat Emptor.

Do you avoid stores that charge tax? I'm from Canada and there is a service tax everything.
X-stream has the best reputation out there and if 8% prevents you from booking it then I guess it leaves more space for the rest of us.
I personlly prefer to use a company that is honest enough to pay its taxes especially when the total is still $30 cheaper then the cruise ship was charging and I know we got a better tour then they did.
