My very personal experience was a bit disappointing. I booked based on other reviews and the way the company positions the tour online. To be begin with, I found very annoying/weird how you get asked to take a picture with a "livesaver/lifebuoy" just before boarding....More

Well priced and good value a whole day out on the water with three snorkel experiences. The staff put customer safety first and provided guidance, supervision and great local knowledge. This is a great day trip and value for money.
