Vertsskapet om bord var helt topp. Blide, positive og engasjerte i gjestene sine. Vi var en vennegjeng på 12 som hadde en helt fantastisk opplevelse på havet. Tiden ble brukt godt, vertene hadde mye kunnskap om historien i området.

The trip was exactly as promised in the brochure. You could see a lot of fish in the water and there was even some vegetation. Before snorkeling, the guide gave a brief history of the island.

Absolutely fantastic trip, so good that we bought a trip an hour and a half later. Incredibly sweet couple who have the boat. Can absolutely be recommended
