Very good experience

Do not hesitate to take this company to snorkel or even dive. The staff really cares about you during all the trip. There were few participants so you are not all annoyed to snorkel on the reef. Even if you are not here to eat, the lunch was delicious. So i thank the chief. The spot chosen was good you see lots of different species , i saw a shark,... so very great journey

Pretty good day trip

Lunch was good, plenty for everyone and tasty. Boat was basic but comfortable, potential for getting very wet with waves depending on where you stood. Staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I paid for certified diving -first dive may have been the worst dive Ive ever been on. I looked at sand for 30 minutes despite a wall of coral beind 5 meters on either but the dive master wanted us to follow him over lots of sand. Dive equiptment would be a safety concern- broken regs, computers not working. I was not going to pay extra for a second dive as it's not cheap. But i did and in the end it was worth while. Im glad the experience was saved. Lastly if you have potential for seasickess- depending on the waves expect vomiting.
