54321 Great fun with the hos Chelsea and the guys sleeping over. Good food, relaxing and snorkling with fishes, turtles and the reef
Johan Sten — 12 February, 2018

32121 Sleeping under the stars and snorkeling in the morning was the best part of this trip. However, some of the things that were advertised eg. reef slide, and air conditioned lounges weren’t there. There are also ALOT of people who take this tour -around 200-300 people which can be a bit uncomfortable – next time would do a smaller tour.
