This was a fantastic day out and a must do. Hire snorkelling gear and enjoy the island. I would do the lighthouse and summit walk first and finish off with snorkelling. You'll need it to cool down. There is alot of equipment to carry i advise finiding a nice spot to snorkel and park there for the day. Foxys bar was great for a feed. There are lockers to hire.

The best thing about this experience was the amazing crew that were very generous with their time and assistance to get us to the right place. We also enjoyed the snorkeling and the glass boat ride. The administration of organising to get to the right place was a nightmare- no signs, no emails with instructions ‍♀️
