Absolutely great trip! From the beach 5 minutes by boat. The water is wonderful. There is enough drinking and eating. Seen sharks and rays snorkeling. Equipment is good too. The highlight was the many small reef fish around you! Important: take your underwater camera with you. Massage was very good too! Only the toilets are tiny.

We had a great time. We were able to swim among sharks and rays. And enjoy other activities: (kayak, paddle, massage, snorkelling). The bar offers snacks, fresh fruit, soda, smoothies etc. We were a small group. It was quite pleasant. All the staff on site were available and very friendly. We highly recommend this activity.

This trip was an absolutely incredible one! we had so much fun with Tony, Nino, Michael & Rafaelo. The catamaran ride was filled with drinks, dancing, snacks & a really good time. We did some snorkeling and spent some time at a sandbar, it truly was incredible! 1000% recommended.

A brilliant experience with Happy Fish Catamarans!! We had a great afternoon. Would highly recommend! The guys onboard were great and made it a fun and safe experience altogether!

It was so much fun. Everybody was so nice. I really recommend this activity. If you’re not afraid to get dirty, this is the activity for you!
