Visitor Feedback

Easily the best snorkel trip I have done in many years. The glass bottom made it entertaining for non-snorkelers, while the boat was easily accessible for those who wanted to snorkel the stunning coral reef. So something for everyone. Lots of sea life. Happy, friendly staff. A bargain at $25. Highly recommended!
