Excellent tour! Glass bottom boat was a very special experience as was snorkeling in the cove! Sara was an excellent guide and very welcoming and helpful. Thank you! We saw many parrot fish and a man-o-war for the first time!

The tour was great but you will need additional 25 Euros for entry/lunch fees. It should be made clear in the tour description. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable.

Hugo IS the G.O.A.T! Friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. Would recommend his tour to anyone visiting.

Very friendly team. Lots of fish to watch. Super the boat on the rough sea
