Would give 6 stars if I could. Everything was great, the guides were always checking in us and making our experience better, the food was great, lots of drinks and there was plenty of time to spend on the island. The boat was a catamaran, so slower, but that was better than an overloaded fastboat. It was really chilly and gave us time to enjoy! Could be improved a bit on the initial check in/meeting point as we had no idea where’s our boat or if we’re at the correct place, but that’s all I can suggest on improving.

Very well organized tour, everything was punctual and on time. The catamaran was not too full or over crowded, and the guys on board were proactively getting drinks. You get to snorkle in the middle of the ocean, get to see a waterfall and at the end you dock on the island for about 90 mins which was really nice. Overall a very good experience with the tour including the Barbeque and unlimited drinks for your approx. 8 hours day trip

Wonderful experience, great service from the crew members, especially Scott who was just very accommodating and making sure everyone was ok. Food was good too, and they accommodate dietary restrictions. If your main wish is to snorkel, please be aware that the snorkel session is rather short. Definitely recommend this trip!

This was really lovely. My first time snorkeling and I loved it! I went as a solo traveller. The guides were friendly, we snorkeled 3times, had a nice swim near the island, the food was also very lovely and I would definitely go again...

Delphine, Schnorcheln, gute Stimmung und Essen, sehr freundliche Skipper: alles sehr gut!
