The trip was really well organised, the staff were really supportive and friendly and the snorkelling itself was incredible. I was really nervous beforehand as I don’t like constricting fabric but Anna, our guide, was incredibly supportive and helped put me at ease. The views in the water were incredible and although the water was cold, you barely notice it in the dry suit! The photos also came out really well. Overall, this was an amazing experience and one which we would highly recommend!

Anna was our guide for the morning, she was excellent! Felt very comfortable the whole time. The gloves you are given are not dry suit so be prepared for cold hands but the hot chocolate help in warming them up. Take plenty of socks to help keep your feet warm too! Although cold before and in the water they warmed up very quickly on the walk back.

Fairly well organized considering there were many groups from many different companies in a relatively tight area. We spent quite a bit of time to put on and take off our gear. The weather was great and the photos came out very well. The tour met our expectations. The dry+wet suits kept us warm & dry. I just wish it didn't "float" that well so that I can "dive" a bit for better photos.
