Great fun! First time driving a speedboat for me - great experience, amazed at how fast they go. The snorkelling was amazing - very relaxed, no rushing to get in/out of boat. Goggles, snorkel tube and flippers all provided. Was grateful for the fresh water shower at the end to get rid of the salt water.

Awesome experience, super fun !!! Highly recommend… speed boats are definitely beginner user friendly. Jet skis are really fast ( I’ve had slow ones before lol ) . Tequila tasting afterwards. Drones took great pictures .
