54321 You have a great team with you .I appreciated their knowledge, professionalism in a relax environment. The boat is well maintained and still new even though the sailing experience wasn’t available . Me and my brother went for introduction dive and the dive instructor has done AMAZING job at relaxing him and make him enjoying the first one . So he went for second one … Good business!

54321 Great day with friendly knowledgeable crew. One of the few boats using sails as part of their CO2 reduction. Just wanted more time on second stop.

54321 Thank you for a nice day out on the reef. As a non swimmer the glass bottom boat tour was a great way for me to see the reef. As a local I will be back for more I am sure. Thank you to all who made a lovely day.
