What an absolutely amazing experience!! From the staff and boat to the snorkelling and site seeing. The hosts in particular Molly & Sprite were such an enjoyable part of the experience - the catamaran was so luxurious and well equipped. The waters were choppy and we were so glad we chose a catamaran which took the waves well. All round a wonderful experience that my partner and I are glad to have had!

Our guide Anek was great and accompanied us well. Boat trip and canoe trip were great. You should have slippers with you for this. The monkeys were unfortunately very many pigeons. Unforgettable trip in a paradisiacal nature!

Very well organized and smooth, friendly and helpful crew, beautiful locations, buffet lunch with meat and vegetarian options, all you can eat. Had a great time!

a fun excursion, the guide spoke English that was perfectly understood.
