Me, my husband, and my friend had such an amazing adventure together snorkeling. We had been looking forward to it for ages and it did not disappoint! We did have the buffet lunch add on too. The food was fine and I loved it was in aircon . I do think though that the buffet lunch isn't necessary and would pack my own next time. It didn't 'wow' me enough to recommend.

Although it was rainy and windy it was still a delightful day out. The waves made for an interesting ride there but once we got off the jetty it was lovely. The walk through the island and the beach were great. The semi submarine was amazing and highly recommend. We saw turtles and so many fish and coral species.

The day was overall excellent but the buffet lunch left a lot to be desired. The prawns appeared to have been frozen, the chicken wings had no flavour and the hot meal, curry, was inedible. I would recommend guests book for the semi-submarine as this was the absolute highlight of the day
