I just want to send my congratulation to the Pilli Pipa Dhow staff who took care of our groop. The „d(r)ivers” of the „taxi boats” are super professional, they also take care of you and show the wonders of marine life. It was the first time I saw a blue starfush! The lunch was sensational, an entire show on Wasin Island. Totally enjoyed it!
