Default Will we have enough time?

I just received my confirmation for the Stingray sandbar tour with Native Way and I'm really excited because I think my 9 yr old son will enjoy this... they scheduled us for their morning tour but we are scheduled to return 12:45 (ship time).... if we are scheduled to leave port at 2pm, will this be enough time?

Cutttin' in close. Native Way's boat is aat least 10 minutes from where the launch is. The last launch will leave approx. 1:30. If you schedule with the ship you wouldn't have to worry. They would hold the ship if you were late.

Its cutting it a bit close, my general rule is to be on board 1 hour prior to sailing just to be on the safe side. I am sure that NativeWay will do its best to get you back on time. There is however that small, what if situation, and since you booked on your own, the ship will not wait for you. For me personally if i am taking a shore excursion that involves getting off the island proper (any kind of boat tour) i book through the ship, pay a bit more for the peace of mind.
