Dear Abdulelah Thanks for your review, it is very much appreciated during these challenging times. Delighted to read that you had a great afternoon learning to snorkel with Mash followed by an encounter with dolphins. The safety and comfort of our guests in the water is extremely important to us, especially when like yourself it is the first time to experience snorkelling. We want to ensure it is both safe and memorable and that it will encourage you to return to the water again. It sounds as though this was the case and we look forward to snorkeling with you again in the future. Take care and stay safe. Kind Regards Ruth

Hi Kevin. Thank you so much for your review. I am delighted that you had a great time with Shaa and the team, I must admit I was worried the weather was going to be against us so a welcome relief when the sun was out and hardly any breeze at all. Our aim is to ensure we provide memorable experiences so to read your review and know that the team have made such an impression gives me both pleasure and satisfaction. Enjoy the rest of your honeymoon and we hope we can welcome you to celebrate a future wedding anniversary! Kind Regards Ruth
