    Our guide Andrea was awesome! Snorkeling was great, boat driver was skilled, and the snacks were good. The 4 hour trip was excellent! My only recommendation would be more comfortable seating. The bench seats are for divers with tanks & not for comfort. 4 stars due to seating not comfortable.

    Great trip!!! We were well informed and taken care of the entire trip. we were given information during the trip about the history, refreshments were plenty (drinks, fruits, biscuits) and even with the snorkeling there was so much attention and explaining. Well worth your money! Thanks especially to Andreas who really looked after all of us.

    Nice experience with lots of fish and nice people

    The snorkeling was very nice. We were given an explanation about all the fish and were allowed to hold starfish. The rest of the group only did the diving but was friendly and pleasant. Because the water was somewhat cold (end of June, 20 degrees) we were given a wetsuit. Lorenzo showed us the way while snorkeling and was attentive throughout the activity. In the end the snorkeling itself took half an hour, but there was time to snorkel longer. The collection and delivery went well and was well organized despite the short time between booking and booking. The boat was covered with toilet and food and drinks.
