What a great day ! Thanks to the team for such a fun trip - the food was excellent and no shortage of drinks. The catamaran was brilliant and there weren’t too many people (like in others). The service provided by the guys was great ! We’d been on another trip two days before and this was far better - thanks ! Stephie and Andy - UK

Crew is super nice. Despite about 20 people there is enough space on the boat. Snorkelling with a current is possible on the first few islands. Bathing shoes and flippers are helpful. Turtles could be observed while snorkeling about 10 meters from the beach. Fish and colorful corals are less present compared to coin de mire. There is little shade on the first few islands. Lunch and drinks are plentiful. Snorkeling at coin de mire bay is great. About 8-10 meters deep. It is worth swimming a little further from the boat to the rock face. There is a coral wall. There is hardly any current, but fins are still helpful. Corals are very colorful and intact, there are many great fish to discover. On the first island you stay about 1 1/2 hours on the second after lunch about 50 minutes and snorkeling Coin de mire about 45-50 minutes. Great excursion. Very good price-performance ratio - can only be recommended!

What a fabulous day. If you want to while away 8 hours being on a boat can be enough. The crew where polite informative and helpful. Chatting with us to dispense necessary info and jovial interaction. I cannot rate the barbecue lunch highly enough and have to say was not my expectation. Lovely chicken and tuna fish with pasta and salad all cooked perfectly. Drinks where available on request water soft drinks and alcohol. I stuck to non alcoholic as I went snorkeling at the last island of the 3 we visited and that’s off the boat straight into the sea, another great experience. I didn’t go to the second island choose to just lay onboard and take in the day of which the weather was faultless. Altogether an excellent trip I would highly recommend. Take sunscreen and shade yourself a bit that’s the dad in me talking, your out for 8 hours. Thank you to the Skipper and crew of the Wind Dancer.
