Very nice tours, well organised, great boat.

You snorkel at the first island, but not visit the actual island as it is forbidden to enter it. The riff was GREAT. The second island is very crowded and not very nice but the BBQ we had on the boat was great. On the last island it is snorkelling again and also great.

Very enjoyable day island hopping on a boat that had plenty of shade.

I was relieved that the transfer was solid. The tour guide was also kind and I enjoyed explaining it carefully! Especially, the lunch was delicious and I was satisfied!
