My sister and I want to snorkel, not dive. We keep coming back to your link, and it keeps coming up with dive options. We are part of a large group, so could potentially have a good group on an individual tour.

What are the diving conditions like in March, we are thinking of coming over for a week, but could arrive in May if weather more suitable. Thanks Penne
