Incredible trip! Picked us up from our hotel the opposite end of the island. We did snorkeling and saw fish and sting rays, and kayaked to the pig island. Lunch was delicious and prepared fresh on board, and we also had fruit, ice cream and soft drinks. The staff were so friendly and made sure everything ran really smoothly.

Was absolutely thrilled by the day. Very well run tour! Amazing team who take safety and service very seriously. Meals were great...tasty and enough for all, with drinks available all day. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day....kayaking, snorkelling and walk to the lake, topped by a fantastic sunset on the ride home.

The itinerary was well planned. The guide is knowledgeable and the driver was excellent. They allowed us ample time at every place to visit. They also organized a pretty good lunch.

Pick up at the hotel at the scheduled time. Friendly guide and captain. Fun fishing even if no big catch. Average snorkeling (I saw better bottoms) and decent lunch.

The tour was well organized, the snorkeling and kayaking were super nice and the food was fantastic!
