Great trip, they provide some water and juices if needed, there was also homemade lunch which was great. They will give you snorkeling equipment but no fins. Guide was very nice and funny, they took us to feed some fish, then we got to swim near coral with lots of fish, after that we had an hour break on an island and then went for lunch and saw some tortoises. Overall, very nice day :) Don't forget sunscreen and water shoes would be good to take as well :)

Amazing day, my driver Henry was very nice and kind. He told me many interesting facts and also shared some of his experiences, which was very informative to learn how the locals live. Henry adjusted the whole trip to what I wanted to do, even went with me for a hike to the rock pool! (which is not as easy as I thought :) Overall, great experience, definitely worth to spend at least one day on this trip and discover Mahe island :)

The tour was very nice and easy going. The guides were very attentive and made sure everything went smoothly. The bbq food for lunch was amazing and visiting the tortoises was fun. Snorkeling was also great, saw many different fish and even went swimming with a turtle
