We thank you for the quality of our excursion which you knew to recognize, with unfortunately an incident in the second garden of coral. I was away and it's hard to know what happened. With clear explanations and good coaching, there should be no problems,...More

I have not been able to find a valid e-mail address for this tour company. We will be in Raiatea on May 16/17 2017 and I would like to arrange for a full day snorkel trip for a number of us. Bob Young
