Wonderful snorkel adventure with experienced team

Very smooth day out on the water! Crew knew exactly what they were doing and very personable. We did snorkeling only and we saw everything we could have wanted to see. One of the perks of the experience was that they had a LOVELY professional underwater photographer who captured some amazing images of us. Very unique and will be special memories that we will treasure. Thanks again :)

Fantastic day

My son 13 and I booked this at the last min and had the best day. Could not complain about anything. We we're lucky weather was perfect, water temp was perfect. We went to 2 dive sites. We only snorkelled but still got to see everything, lots of fish and coral. Very comfortable boat and the staff were really helpful. I would recommend it for young to old

Birthday present trip

Enjoyed our trip yesterday. Staff were helpful when needed, equipment and boat well maintained and not too big a group. Would go again.
