Just read the reviews on the Frankland island tour . Cant believe they were so positive . Just like to say i found some of the crew rude and i felt like i was on a school outing , also the snorkeling was very poor , we were confined to a small beach area with 50 other people , visibilty was poor ( cant be helped ) but coral was non existent or dead . all the time we were snorkeling we were instructed by the waffen SS to snorkel in this direction or that direction and if orders werent obeyed then one of the guards would rush over in the boat and bark instructions at us .After an hour or so the tide went out and waves started battering the beach and snorkelimg area, me and my partner then went to other side of the island, after getting permission from the sturmbandfuhrer we found there it was quiet , no waves , clear water and the occasional turtle coming up for air , but of course we couldnt snorkel there because it wasnt within the excercise yard !! this of course made the trip even more dissapointing . I got the impression the aim was to herd as many people on and off the island in the shortest amount of time . the plus was that the island was very nice and lunch was good . But i think i will head off and hire my own boat in the Philippines or Thailand next time and just relax !!!!
