Amazing day trip - well organised and value for money. Swimming with the fish above the reefs is enlightening. Great food and Blue Sky travel agent Mohamed was a pleasure.

This was a lovely romantic day out with great snorkeling as well. The food was ok, although drinks a little expensive so i would suggest taking plenty of water for yourself.

My husband & I have done this trip twice. Boat trip, all day on the island, snorkel trip & lunch. The food is amazing, the boat clean, the island is spotless, plenty of shade with crystal clear water. Definitely worth the visit!
