This was our first time for snorkelling and didn't knew what to expect, we were trained by the professional and then we were taken in the mid of the sea. There we were amazed to see sea so rich in life, with different fishes, crabs, and other water animals, a very unique experience altogether.....

Nice place for spending hours to try look something new beside beach and bar.. But 40RM is quite expensive because the animals are not as our expectation.. Just a few and suddenly has already finshed.. But the penguin are a good reason to come here because they are so cool!!
