I had low expectations for the salt soak as I simply wanted to give my pregnant sister relief for her swollen ankles. I was pleasantly surprised by what an amazing experience it was. The view was fantastic and Angie was fun and super helpful. The soak itself was invigorating. We enjoyed salt tasting afterward. Highly recommend. Seriously best $20 you will ever spend.

Capt Nolan and his crew were fantastic! Funny, informative and friendly. Saw loads of mantas and enjoyed the experience but would recommend taking sea sickness tablets beforehand! Avoid taking an Uber as my driver couldn’t find me on the return and abandoned me! The site is derelict at night and pitch black so hire a car if needs be

Garry was an awesome guide and we learned a lot on the hike. Really fun for the whole family. Swimming in a waterfall is amazing! The whole trip was well planned. Really appreciate the attention to details.

It's great for eSIM-enabled cell phones. I had no problems unlocking it. I had a normal SIM card in my German cell phone and have now also activated the eSIM for vacation in America. Works great. Thanks

Three snorkel spots, 6 passengers, great snacks & lunch, and a fabulous captain. We got dolphins & turtles. Could not have asked for more!
