We went in October 2021. At 7.40 we were picked up from the hotel in Makadi by a comfortable mini-bus. Travel time to the pier was about 40 minutes. The yacht is very decent, not old. The first location was water sports. As a result, we rode a cheesecake and a banana for a minute. There were 20 people, so I had to wait a little while everyone was riding. Then we drove to the orange island, where we stopped for an hour. There is where to lie down, take pictures, swim, the location is just super. Then we sailed to a diving and snorkeling location. All equipment and costumes were provided. The instructors are very competent, they explain well, speak Russian. The scuba diving itself takes about 20 minutes, but we were the first time, we had enough, the experience is just great. Then you can simply swim with masks and snorkels (also issued) or without. Then there was a great lunch (salads, seafood, soup, grilled meat and poultry). Further fishing. The team is just great, everyone is friendl

An amazing day from start to finish. Pick up time was exact, staff were friendly and helpful. The activities just kept coming! Such a fun filled, day! The scuba instructor was clear, kind and helpful. All the staff were happy and welcoming. If you want water sports, sunbathing, scuba diving, a massage, fishing, snorkelling and an exceptional lunch in one day book now! A must do excursion!
