Great excursion, we loved the welcome of our guide Kif, his kindness, his concern for our well-being and his patience with our "English". The islands and beaches are heavenly, bursting with sunshine and fish. The barbecue is delicious and plentiful, and finally the night dive in the bioluminescent plankton: an unforgettable experience!

Beautiful day trip! We were lucky and there were only 6 participants on the boat and the beaches were not busy so we were almost alone there :) the guide was very open, friendly and helpful. The highlight of the trip was of course swimming with plankton! I can only recommend the trip.

It was a fantastic trip .. very nice .. visited different islands, ate delicious fruit, swam and afterwards a delicious BBQ. Very cool guide. Thank you very much for this nice day. Alfrid & Nancy
