we booked this snorkeling adventure thru the hotel and it was great. they take you to 3 different locations and your food and drinks are included in the price. The people that take you out are very helpful and very friendly. My daughter and my husband had a great time snorkeling....me and my younger daughter just stayed on the beach... More

the waters were way to rough to be out snorkeling on the morning we went out. We were told it would be 3 foot waters however it was deeper than that and no one could even touch the ocean floor. It was impossible to keep your head down to look for fish when ocean water is crashing into your snorkel... More

If I would have known how much work was involved I may have opted out. It seemed to be about a mile long swim getting to the reef, against a current with life jacket, was too much work to enjoy the snorkeling. That said the 2nd half was with the current and was alot better, the best part was hanging... More

This was a great experience! We were a little crowded but it was a great time. Bring your park fee of 5 pesos per person and you can only use biodegradable sunscreen.

We did the all day snorkeling adventure. We were picked up on time at our hotel. The driver was courteous. The place was very nice and comfortable. We had three boat rides out and each time was about an hour. The staffs were attentive and very knowledgable. The trip included a lunch and it was very good. It was all... More

We did the all day snorkeling adventure. It consisted of three snorkeling outings - each to different locations of the reef. We were glad we did the full day instead of the half day because the third reef was by far the best one. We saw lots of fish, some with amazing colours. We had our own gear, but those... More

We booked the full adventure (three stops). The day started out with a later morning pickup (10:40), some time to get organized for the short boat ride out to the reef (and for other vans to arrive with paying customers). Then snorkeling at two different locations on the reef (bring biodegradable sunscreen to protect the wildlife!) for 45 minutes each.... More

Overall the trip was fair. very little explaining about the reef or what to see. had to wear large orange life vest that made snorkeling awkward. If you cant swim, might be ok. the guides yelled the entire time over hear, stay in line etc. not very enjoyable. more interested in getting you in and out then experiencing the reef.... More

The host had rallied us all at the end to remind us that "if we didn't have anything nice to say then don't write a review" then proceeded to ask for tips for the snorkel team and then also for the food team. The food was low grade dog food and the drinks tasted like alcohol causing only heartburn adding... More

It was a very hot day, but once we got in the boat & on the water we enjoyed ourselves. Management & staff went out of their way to be helpful. We were a bit disappointed that we didn't see more sea life, but that happens sometimes when snorkeling!
