We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We did the morning tour in 2020 and had to book in the afternoon tour this time around. The tour guides were very considerate and patient. They are always on the look out for us when we went snorkelling as we struggled a little bit as we are not used to these types of activities. Although, one minor adjustment to this tour would be the quality of food as the morning tour i remember had a wonderful lunch with seafood.

The tour guides were hilarious and made the trip really entertaining! Bubbles, music and a gorgeous sunset, couldn't ask for anything more:)

OUR 1st time on a Segway and in the rain - my brother and I had an AMAZING time

Amazing staff and value for money. I would definitely recommend to everyone.
