Despite meeting our transfer at 8pm, our driver happily undertook the 3 hour journey to the boat. Our driver woke the boat captain so...

This hotel was booked as part of a scuba diving island hopping package with Sea Explorers. The diving here was great and we managed to see thresher sharks on our early morning dives. The dives at Gato Island were fantastic, we saw species of nudibranch that we had not seen before and we’ve been diving all around the world. The...
