An excellent day out at sea . Roy was amazing and really felt like it wasn't just another boat tour . He took us to the best possible spots and the whole crew was lovely . the food was great , facilities were fantastic and although we didn't have the best seas going to the island they made sure everyone was comfortable and happy . Earth is amazing amd full of jokes . We are definitely going to be back and recommend it to everyone we know !! No complaints from our side , just an all round great time with great and passionate people .

the boat is incredibly impressive with ample room for both sun lovers and shade seekers...proper pirate ship windows and a cannon...obviously staff and food excellent as expected but the journey on a galleon proper wood ship...snorkeling and beaches are truly the thing of dreams...

Everything was really good. Could have been better if the weather wouldn’t be windy and partly cloudy, apart from that everything is nicely organized, food was good, snorkeling, kayaking, walking up that hill in front of lagoon were picturesque. Recommend to everyone!

A great day sailing, swimming, snorkelling, fishing, eating and drinking with wonderful crew and scenery. Highly recommended. Thanks for the memories

This was an enjoyable trip. The guide was funny and treated us very well. All the trips were planned out well and the food was delicious
