The perfect highpoint
Aug 2021
Be aware, the rays aren't always cooperative, so occasionally you won't find them. But the turtles are always around, and Charlotte and her team know exactly where to find them all. This is the best group of people to snorkel with, as they'll encourage, teach, fine-tune, and support you in every way possible. The photographs are spectacular, but the memories are even better.

Amazing snorkelling experience
Was a pretty amazing experience snorkelling with the turtles. Charlotte, her dad and her staff are all super warm and friendly and do a great job taking you around the lagoon searching for the turtles. You do a photo shoot will the turtles and with your family before the tour which is a nice touch.

I don’t have the words to describe how amazing this experience was. Charlotte and her team were fantastic. I’ll never forget swimming with the beautiful sea turtles. The photos are absolutely incredible and I found all of the interactions very personalised which really added to the experience. Top class tour and worth every penny.
Thank you Charlotte xx

Exceeds the hype!
What an awesome once in a lifetime experience. Charlotte and her team are all fantastic. A calm and natural way to swim
with lots of amazing turtles. Very professional and safe set up. All the family had an amazing time and we range from experienced divers to novice snorkellers. So stoked we did it and haven’t even seen the photos yet but am sure they’ll be perfect! Thanks CP and crew!

Amazing turtle tour!!
Mar 2020 • Couples
My partner and I had an amazing time on the turtle tour with Charlotte and her team! The team was very kind and made sure everyone was included and got a unique and intimate experience with the turtles. Unfortunately the water was not safe to swim with the rays that day but my partner and I will definitely be back to do both tours again. The highlight of our trip :)
