The snorkeling tour was a great way to end our vacation. After a short, rapid boat ride, we stopped at a reef and had over an hour to observe the most diverse fish and sea creatures. We would definitely do it again and recommend it!

I liked it very well. It was my first time snorkeling, but it was fantastically beautiful. The briefing was also in English, so that it was easy to understand. I can warmly recommend to everyone
