The boat captain was exceptionally friendly and relaxed. He was very patient and allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted at each island. While most of the islands had jellyfish, which prevented the children from swimming, the captain kindly took us to an excellent snorkeling location. The scenery of the islands was breathtaking, and the weather remained pleasant throughout the day. We made a reservation for a private boat for our family of seven, and it was well worth the expense. The customer service representatives were incredibly helpful throughout the entire process, from confirming our booking and answering all of my inquiries, to assisting us on the day of our island excursion. They did an outstanding job, and I highly recommend their services.

This was so fun! We weren’t a giant group so we all comfortably fit in the longboat. We had a perfect amount of time at each swimming and beach spot to look and explore. The guides were very friendly and helpful! Perfect for young adults or families. And the dinner was pretty good too. The plankton are really cool, just don’t expect them to be like a glow stick, they are the size of plankton so they’re pretty much water fireflies. Thanks for a great afternoon

It was a beautiful day. We love the snorkeling the best got to do it twice. The crew was exceptionally nice and helpful with everything.

Despite the weather which was raining and overcast our guide Max and the crew made it an enjoyable experience. Would book again.

The whole day was an amazing experience, our tour guide Selena was great too! Would recommend this tour
