We went during the stormy wet season. Even with the big waves and rain this tour was still great. Great staff and they knew just what to do to make the experience great.

If you spend a little more and take the Silver Swift they will take you to the outer reef, once there you should go expecting to see a lot of very colourful fish and amazing coral. There are also schools of large fish that... More
