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!
