The snorkeling tour was a lot of fun. The first island was nice for snorkeling with access to a bat cave, at the second spot we swam through a cave to a nice location (the guides light the way here). The next spot was again for snorkeling. There were a few jellyfish here, but the guides tried very hard not to let them get too close to us. Lunch was on the beach and super tasty. In between there was enough water and even some fruit. The 45 minute pickup window is a bit long (we ended up waiting almost an hour to be picked up). Overall, the guides were very friendly and took great care of the safety of the participants. We would book the tour again!

I came on a trip alone. Everything was low and awkward, but I could enjoy the trip thanks to the kind guide. I wanted to enjoy more snorkeling, but I couldn't because of the jellyfish. I was scared because it rained heavily on the way back

Everything worked on time and was well organized. The individual spots were sometimes a bit full because of a local holiday, but our tour guide Ya made up for it with his positive manner and cheerfulness.

Very good tour, we were lucky with the view under water and could see a lot of corals and fish. The crew was also very helpful.

Great experience in times of covid almost no one on the scene, we were able to fully enjoy it. Super friendly guide.
