Very beautiful experience, the staff was very nice, answered all our Questions and told us about all the different islands and about the marine life. We fed fish, watched fish and other sea animals through a glas bottom boat, after that we had the chance to snorkel ourselves. The barbeque was also very good and local. For little extra money, you could also see tortoises and feed them. At the end of the day, they let us snorkel a second time. Overall, a very exciting Adventure.☺️

The trip was really great! First we went to Cerf Island to see turtles, then we saw the reef through the glass bottom and then went snorkeling. Then we went to Long Island, where we could walk and swim on the beach. Immediately afterwards we went to the Creole BBQ, which was really delicious! Then we went to another snorkeling spot.

Very well organized. The pick-up was perfect. Because the weather was instable they offered the opportunity for a change of day or refund. We decided to go anyway and liked a lot. Good bikes.

Two dream islands not to be missed. Perfect excursion very well organized with a delicious typical Creole lunch in a dream location

Harry was a great driver and guide. Our family had a lot of fun. Thank you again Harry
