The trip itself was really nice. Just keep in mind, that was our impression, that the only turtle we saw is trained on the tourists. The boats gather around one individual and lure them out of the water with their horns. Private boats are being pushed out by tour boats. Otherwise very nice tour with nice impressions. What shouldn't have been, the 1 hour stay at Turtle Beach, where masses of white people docked the tourist boats and dumped the tourists.

We had booked a boat trip. This one was also confirmed. On arrival everything was fine, until we would go on the boat. Then the boat was suddenly overbooked. A man with a group of 8 people suddenly came into view, after that we and a few other people couldn't come along. We were able to get the boat from 3 hours later. We did not accept this and were offered a private boat for 8 people an hour later. We were taken to another port, only they didn't know about the appointment there. Still able to arrange a skipper and boat and had a super fun boat trip with the people who were overbooked.

Very nice. The tour guide was very chatty and kind. We saw turtles and the beautiful Keri caves. Just the island was in my opinion the only bad thing because it’s so crowded you can’t even lay down and there is a rope limiting the excess to the island which is only like 5m from the coast
