54321 The best trip ever! Congratulations to the team of staff who offered nothing but smiles. The entire trip from the moment we left the port was faultless. We loved every second and the staff are clearly thrilled to be working in a job they love. We will be back. Thank you :))

43211 Awfully boat trip because of waves and wind. Nice staff en well organsied. Only thing is that we booked for a full day diving and only got 1 dive included. Price was already very high. So we had to pay extra for the 2nd dive. Also had to pay extra for diving guide. Very strange, anywhere in the world this is, of course, always included in the price. Even the sea sickness pills you had to pay for. Every ferry, boat organzation in the world give this for free. So we had a wonderful day but got a big of a hangover because of the extra payments. It already was very expensive. So be aware if you book and ask what exactly you get for that high price

43211 Good tour, we had a great time, however we were 120+ people on board, more than double the number advertised!! We still enjoyed it as we booked numerous activities in which we were in groups of 4-6 but it could still felt crowded at some times (specially during lunch and while snorkeling)
