Lovely snorkelling spots and great food

We went to 3 different snorkelling spots. The last one Manta Ray Bay reef was amazing. Got to see 2 local reef celebrities. Food was great. No joke. Burgers? Yes please. And my friend had the opportunity to sail our boat with guidance of Alex and skipper Kev. You eather will like or dislike skipper Kev.Pretty straight forward man, who likes to smoke and swear, but he does take are of his crew and passangers on boat. Only thing that bothered me was smoking and 'as a joke' picking on someone from a passengers. That's my personal thought. Maybe others thought it's super funny. In the beginning I thought I made a mistake of choosing them but after tour I would do it again :)
