The team from the crew ship was fantastic , explained before going into the water all the safety things, risks and everything. The journey into the water was a bit too short or to fast I can say, because we needed to keep swimming to catch the group. Will be better in the future maybe to swim at the coral location and have a bit of time there to take pictures this can be improved. But all around the journey worth every penny. At the time I booked it was round 25$ I think with the exchange rate.

Activity to do and redo :), dynamic and friendly on-board staff. We were able to see the dolphins and go into the sea with them + 2 different superb places for snorkeling and the young people ended up with a sensation with banana games and towed buoy. Unforgettable outing.

Complete success...saw a lot of dolphins...the crew was great!! Great value for money...even banana boats were offered free of charge!

Transfer worked great, crew tried very hard, snorkeling spots and the island were really beautiful. The food was also very tasty.
