Top class snorkeling experience

All in all definitely a recommendable excursion tip. We were 4 of us (1 day stay by cruise) and got 2 people to the group. The 7th including a diving instructor went to the beach, we slowly went into the water equipped with wetsuits. The wetsuits were very tight, I could not have stayed in the suit for more than 2 hours (probably more of a male problem;)) If you liked, you had diving weights beforehand to dive from time to time. Here you have to say that they are normal snorkels that can penetrate water from above at any time. The snorkels were not really clean and one of our group had to take a slightly broken snorkel as there were many broken ones and the intact ones were already out of stock. This did not spoil the snorkeling fun, however. In the end you can more than recommend this activity for this price, it was a great experience. And there are actually more colorful fish than you think

Enrico was amazing. He described to us everything we could see and explainus how to use all the equipment. That place was full of life and water was clear and warm. We have been lucky to see two octopus (one was hiding between rocks and another one was also hunting) and we have been reeeeally lucky to see a seasnake (enrico told us the probability to see it was 3/4 times per year). There is also the possibility to see an angel shark sleeping (even if rare) and also some urchin. We have never been in danger and all the time spent in the water was perfect, seeing many and many different kind of fish in there. I definetely recommend this experience.

Wonderful experience

We had a great time with Enrico during our snorkelling experience. He was very kind and helpful with us. He explained all the fishes we would have found later in the sea and also took some pictures of us. Lisa, Enrico's wife, was so kind that she brought an hairdryer for us after the snorkelling and suggested some good restaurants to go for dinner. I highly recommend EmotionApnea.
