The experience was much better than I expected. Everyone was so incredibly relaxed and accommodating despite a series of changes I needed to make to my bookings. I had also booked the Discover scuba with them and I couldn't believe how incredibly attentive and patient Julie was. The interaction with everyone in Omega Divers was very pleasent and relaxed. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Nice for snorkeling but don't get your hopes up to high. There was not much to see (if you are used to Bali or Australia). There was also not much explanation about the sea. The supping was fun but a bit short and then we stayed there for half an hour/hour longer on the beach while we were only back at 3 pm.. For those who are hungry quickly, so be sure to bring something to eat.

Have taken part in the snorkeling and stand-up paddling tour today. There are 2 snorkeling spots where you spend about 30 minutes each. Then it goes on to the SUP. Everything worked out great and was fun. There was water, melon and grapes - top. The boat trip alone was worth every penny. Emma is doing great! Keep it up! Many greetings ☀️
