It was a great trip. The boat was a little on the smaller size for how many people were on it. The 1st water spot was amazing and full of fish and coral the second spot was just rock and water not a lot of fish. They did not provide life jackets so if you aren’t an amazing swimmer or have low energy it would be hard.

The guide Andrea is a fantastic man! He takes the time to explain a lot about the region and the volcano, which is very nice. In addition, you can also ask him other things about the rest of your stay, here you will get good tips. The snorkeling itself is great fun too! The guide tells a lot about the underwater world and shows different animals. We could stay in the water as long as we wanted.

Our guide Andrea was awesome! Snorkeling was great, boat driver was skilled, and the snacks were good. The 4 hour trip was excellent! My only recommendation would be more comfortable seating. The bench seats are for divers with tanks & not for comfort. 4 stars due to seating not comfortable.
