Looked for Conch Shells

We took a catamaran from Copamarina Hotel to Gilligan's Island. What fun! We went to the side less occupied by people and spent over an hour looking for shells and exploring.

The rest of the people were tourist and families which made the enviroment great for a family.water is extremely clear, shallow water and beautiful.... More

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and definitely a place I will continue to visit. You are missing out if you do not get a chance to ride the natural lazy "river" inlets. Better than an amusement park. And the most unique snorkeling experiences around. Love this experience.

Loved this remote island. The water was crystal clear, perfect temperature and shallow. We ordered our lunch, boarded the ferry, and started our adventure. Our visit lasted 3 hours and was pretty relaxing. We walked around the island and explored the fish. When we were walking back to the pier we ran into the little guy in our picture. We'll... More

Very nice place to spend half a day. This is a small island about 15 minutes from land. A small ferry carrying up to 42 persons will take you there for $7.68 both ways. You have to arrive early so you can oick a good place to stay. There are tropical kiosk and bbq grills available.During weekends the place is... More

This Island is a small boat ride away. There are some fees involved it is $7 per person for the ferry to take you to the small island (this does include the ride back). Once on the island their are some picnic tables and grills for use but there is limited space so early bird gets the worm here. The... More

This place is really nice to visit. Pack a lunch, bring water, sunblock, a hat, beer and your snorkel gear. Water is super clean and lot's of colorful fish. Iguanas are in abundance just leave them alone but they look frightening. Try snorkeling up one of the water canals and then you can enjoy a nice float on the way... More

Busy and crowded. Nice but other spots are nicer. Fishermen leave many conch shells on he eastern side of the island. We found a lot of them. Walking around the mangroves was very mucky in spots. I had to tow my child as she floated in her life jacket in paradise. Good place to visit once, especially on a non... More

I love this island, you must take a ferry to get there, its like a 5 min boat ride to get there for $10 back and forth. I do recommend taking those beach chairs for you to sit on, since its sort of like a jungle, you cannot just sit on the sand with the towel because its wet and... More
