We thoroughly enjoyed the sunset cruise. The sunset views from both the boat & island were magnificent. The fresh prawns & platter we’re delicious. Thank-you for this memorable experience.

This tour was amazing! The glass bottom boat gave an opportunity for those who couldn't snorkel to view the coral reef. The snorkeling experience was amazing and so very honored to be able to step foot on the beautiful Pelican Banks. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and engaging. Was truly a pleasant experience and look forward to using your service again in the near future. Thank you!
