Great for the whole family! If you are looking for a longer snorkeling excursion this is probably not for you. For our family it was great because we got to try different things in one day. We have early primary aged children and they loved it. Our guide Frankie was very nice and accommodating!

Unfortunately the weather was fine, but snorkeling was fine and I was able to see beautiful fish. I couldn't fish because of bad weather, but I think it feels good on a sunny day! I want to use it the next time I go.

Lovely day visiting 4 islands on a speedboat. Only 10 passengers, so very leisurely. Lunch al fresco on the third island. Seafood, chicken, rice and vegetables with options for vegans and vegetarians.

Overall was worth the money , May Rut Idland was my highlight , It was beautiful, lunch was delicious and great variety. Guide was great, very professional. Over all , 5 Stars for me ...

Very nice excursion: skorkling in waters rich in fauna, swimming aboard a heavenly beach. Very nice.
