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.

I recommend a thousand times! The guide is friendly and the boat is calm, we are comfortable there! The snorkelling point is ok, no jellyfish for us and we were calm. The meal was very good, unlimited water!

Wonderful experience! We were alone on all the islands. We have the time slot of 6.15 am. taken, choice 3. It was really wonderful that you could spend an hour alone on each island. Top captain!!

It was amazing! I was a bit hesitant because of the weather, but they know what they are doing. We had enough time every stop we had and the lunch was also great! Definitely recommend this trip.

The tour guides were very helpful and organized the amount of time at each location well!
