We were picked up promptly from our resort by a very friendly driver. Once we arrived at the beach the Happy Fish guide greeted us and we were lead out to the catamaran. We set sail along the coastline and arrived at the snorkeling spot, there were 2 other boats there. We snorkeled for around 45 minutes and then got back in the boat. There were tons of cool fish! Next we went to a natural pool to swim and drink from a floating bar. They also provided paddle boards but I did not try it. Once we got back to shore we were allowed 10 minutes to shop in the flea market. Be warned: you will get hassled by the shop workers. They are not part of Happy Fish but it’s worth mentioning. All in all the trip was fantastic!

To me, there was a lot packed into this tour and it was very well executed.
