Our guides were fabulous! As I'm a "senior" and was a little apprehensive about the snorkeling excursion, Tulu was wonderfully patient with me, pointing out all the interesting coral and unusual fish.

The island is extremely beautiful with a TON of gorgeous coral formations. The water is crystal clear and an amazing turquoise blue. Great snorkel trip for the day
