It was a well organized snorkeling tour in a natural pool separated from the sea. We were very well instructed and made aware of many sea creatures. Also very suitable for children. The transfer from and to the hotel also worked very well. We were even sent great underwater pictures. Overall a great trip.

Mathias is a great guide who knows a lot about what he is doing. The snorkeling is great, you see a lot and learn a lot. An incredible experience and highly recommended! The night snorkeling that is offered is also breathtaking!
