The tour guide picked us up at the hotel early. There were 5 participants on the trip so it wasn"t crowded at all. We had a good couple hours of clear skies to get some fishing in before it started to rain and become windy. It was my first time fishing but I caught three! We had fried rice and fish bbq for lunch. Since it started to rain we voted to forego the snorkeling in favor of more fishing, but eventually we had to return earlier than scheduled. Tour guide operator dropped us back off at the hotel. Overall good experience, despite the weather.

Highly recommended this trip to the Pig Island. You can buy and feed them with food, make photos and videos. Pigs is wild but very friendly with people. You will visit one more small island there you will have lunch and free time for kayaking, swimming or just relaxing. I really enjoyed

We had a really nice day! The guide was really talkative and his english was nice! Everything well organized and without stress, we had fun and at the same time we got to relax with no hurry to go from one place to the other

Pek was an excellent tour guide and the best photographer. The food on the island for lunch was great and each spot was beautiful l. We had a group of 6 so we got to spend as much time as we wanted in each stop

Our guide Pat was great and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
