Beautiful experience especially for those who are not expert in diving. Jimmy (our guide) was very nice and helpful. Highly recommended

Great trip, you could have saved yourself the snorkeling at this point but it was still great to jump into the water and swim :)

We recommend this tour. The island is very beautiful and we enjoyed a relaxing time off there after lunch.
