Trip to see turtles and see cows

The whole day boat trip for snorkelling and diving in order to see mainly turtles and sea cows. It is amazing to see coral reef along with sea life.

A bay by the shore with moderate variety of corals and sea life. Ain't worth the effort nor the money if you plan a daily diving trip with the boat.

Surely something to go to. The trip by boat to go to the reef was great and the sorkeling experience............. GREAT !! Never saw so much beauty beneath the sea before and I have been snorkeling in several places before. In 1 word: FANTASTIC !!!
