This was a fantastic experience for both of us. I'm a diver, and the snorkeling was so good that I didn't go diving: we went here for three days! Wilfred (the attendant on the Island) was friendly and helpful, giving out information and suggestions. We were provided a small hut (to keep our things and as a place to get out of the sun or rest if we wanted to. There are ropes strung (so you can pull yourself along if you don't want to swim or to fight the slight current), and a huge area to explore. Fish feeding was at 11:30 and 2:00, and we were surrounded by hundreds of fish of all kinds, Sting Rays, Black-tipped Sharks (non threatening), and Margareete, a 7' Mooray eel. There are several kayaks that are free to use, and we enjoyed paddling in the lagoon and around the island. It is located past the ferry landing, towards the village of Afareito, with a small shack on the ocean side of the road. Once you pay, they radio for the boat to come pick you up, and you have a 5 minute ride to the private island. Coffee, Tea, and Cocoa are provided at no cost, but they do not have any food. We can't say enough good about the experience! (cost is a reasonable 29,000 CPF (about $30).
