Really fun tour with plenty of wildlife to see. Also the grilled fish lunch was delicious. I loved the boat tour and also the sandbar. Excellent informative guides who ensured you have an excellent experience. One of our tour guides who was Italian sorry can’t remember his name. Went above and beyond to ensure I felt safe while snorkeling.
