Lots to do from snorkelling to just laying on deck chairs. Snacks and juices and water is available and free. Swimming the the stingrays and sharks is amazing. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Recommend this for anyone. Also the massages are great.

It was a good day, but like almost all of the excursions offered, overpriced. Not alot of interaction with employees and they could do a little better than the sandwiches offered.
