Excellent day out, with great snorkelling sites (would have loved longer to explore them). Delicious and plentiful lunch. Friendly and helpful crew. Lovely boat. Very relaxing and enjoyable day. My only small complaint would be the lack of sugar free soft drinks - I have type 1 diabetes and was unable to drink any of the soft drinks included in the price as they were all full sugar. In future it would be good if they could provide Coke Zero or similar, as well as the Coke, Sprite etc. Be warned that if you buy drinks on the island in the afternoon the waiter will just take his own tip instead of giving you your full change!

Very good trip, highly recommended! We were picked up at the hotel on time and taken to the ship. When we got there we waited for the rest of the guests and then we started. At the first stop you could ride a banana boat or a water couch (included in the price). This was followed by two snorkeling stops with beautiful coral reefs and lots of great fish. There was ample time for snorkeling and observation. Then there was lunch on board and a visit to the islands followed. On the boat you could choose whether you want to go to Orange Bay or Paradise Bay. The entry of about 5 € per person had to be paid separately. From the big boat we were then driven to the islands with a smaller boat. We spent about 1.5 hours there and then we went back to the ship and then to the jetty and the hotel. It was a very nice and entertaining tour and we would book you again at any time!

The organizer Alex and his crew on board are very warm and welcoming, and took the time to explain the whole program to us as well as the instructions on board the boat. We did 2 spots for snorkeling in 2 divided groups, one for the good swimmers and one for the less good around the corals. Giftun Island, and its orange bay beach was a magnificent spot for taking very beautiful photos. I recommend.
