I'm going to review this to give you some tips. Ask to visit here on the first day you arrive.

We travelled to the Conservation Area in a little outboard with two guides. The islands are beautiful - lushly forested and full of birdlife. The sea was so clean and clear and 5 metres from the sand the water was full of coral in rainbow colours and thousands of fish of many types. Fantastic experience!!
