An absolutely incredible experience. I’ve never been snorkeling before and it was great. There was a tutorial on how to use the gear at the start too. We saw thousands of fishes, octopuses, crabs, eels and much more. A well worth experience that you can...More

Great passionate guy who clearly loves his island and nature, and wants everyone to experience the wonder of creation and therefore learn to respect it. Great snorkling with wonderful clear water, good mixture of marine life to see, in wonderful warm waters.
