It was a super nice tour that Antonio, our skipper, did with us. Antonio is very attentive and drew our attention to various boats, viewpoints and destinations and explained a lot to us. In total we visited three different snorkeling spots and found ourselves caught up in a huge school of fish at Morala Island. Indescribable! We would book the tour again at any time and can also highly recommend Antonio as skipper! He provided us with drinks and snacks in between. Everything delicious, very clean and highly recommended. He is a very likeable, positive and authentic man who makes you feel like you are in good hands! Thank you for this nice tour, Antonio say Rabea, Eric and Jil from Germany

This was a great tour and totally worth the money! Antonio our guide was very sweet and nice with lots of fun jokes and interesting facts to tell! I can’t swim but he was so nice and provided a life vest and let me enjoy the snorkeling experience with that while always keeping an eye on me making sure I was safe! The places we stopped were dreamy and a real paradise!! Highly recommended!!!
