We were 10 people from 4 countries and had a wonderful day! It was well organized and the 2 guides first took us by boat to snorkeling spot 1, where there were many colorful fish to see. Then to the island of Curieuse - after some relaxation in the sea we went across the island to the giant tortoises & BBQ. Finally snorkeling again on the way back, and at the end we got a rum drink. Was great, entertaining, nice insights, nice guides. Was totally worth it.

The whole trip was a highlight. The snorkeling spots were great. We saw so many fish. The BBQ was super delicious and the rum cocktail at the end of the trip rounds off the excursion perfectly. I would definitely book the trip again. Many thanks to the crew for this wonderful experience.

Excursion at the top ..... I strongly recommend it for snorkeling, boat trips, secret beaches, barbecue and the curious island with its incredible turtles. Thank you to the team for their professionalism and their sympathy everything was perfect
