Long ferry ride, 2.5 hours, but the crew feeds you and is very hospitable. When you arrive there is plenty to see and do....swimming, snorkeling, walking, sightseeing (the Fort). Alcohol available on the way back. Definitely worth the $175

We took the Bi-plane and had the time of our lives. Snorkeling was very fun and seeing the sea turtles during the flight was a added bonus
