We have done many wonderful trips with three-generation families and I am delighted that your charter worked so well for you all. I think your daughter just needed a little gentle encouragement and personal attention to build her confidence so she felt safe...More
We had a great trip with Jonathan and his crew yesterday. My wife and I, with our three kids (13, 12 and 8) took the 5-hour trip, which included two amazing snorkelling sessions. The first was in a shallower section, so we could learn to...More

Thank you for writing this lovely review.
We work hard to look relaxed (haha) and make sure that everyone has a great day on the boat and in the sea. Rizy loves looking after the children in his care and safely showing them...More
It is Jonathan and his crew that make the big difference. A very nice boat cruising around the super location just outside of KK.
Jonathan and his crew are nice, solid and fully trustable professionals that create a perfect experience for their customers.
Thank Karin S

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for your kind comments.
Our lunch is most often described as 'simple but delicious' and I am always pleased to hear that our egg mayonnaise went down well (something we hear quite...More
It's a set rate for the boat for the day, regardless of the number of people. I can't remember how much this was but if you email Jonathan he'll quote you. I think it was more than RM1,000 but we had 6 adults so between us... More
