Treat yourself.

Knowledgeable hosts Rhett and Josh, ensured we had a wonderful day despite the inclement weather. The snorkelling was fantastic, heaps of fish on a most interesting reef site. The lunch was fresh and plentiful. Kayaking was a hoot and the sand dunes fascinating. I highly recommend.

what a day!!

We enjoyed our day trip and the activities. Staff were super friendly and accommodating. Lunch was well prepared. However, as part of the tour there should be a little time to sit and enjoy the views of the island.

Good but...

we arrived on the island at 10am, we started directly with the snorkeling 100 meters from the ferry, the spot is not exceptional but we can even see a lot of fish. we go straight to lunch, which does not have one. this is really the negative point of this experience! only one hot dog, two for the lucky ones and that's it, no drinks no fruit, we were only 20 persons, there was clearly not enough food for the price of the excursion! we then continue the kayak in the same place as the snorkelling, no fishfiding whereas it was written on the internet but the experience of transparent kayaks is nice. the rest of the day was cool with the descent of the sand dunes but no time for the return to stay in the sun at the beach we leave at 3:30 p.m, you don't really visit the island .The guy who was with us was very nice.

Great day of snorkeling

The corals is beautiful and a lot of colorful fishes. Did see one shark and I think they see it almost every day, but you need to be able to dive with the snorkel to see it. The crew takes you on a water jet out to the boats and you are not allowed to swim around them by your self. You follow the group with a guid along the wrecks. The crew are super helpful and you can ask to stay on the beach instead of doing the sand boarding. The trip is quite rushed and not a lot of time to enjoy the beach so expect an day of activity.
