I initially thought "the water is so nice, we won't need that warm shower!" But after dark, it actually was quite chilly, and that shower felt so good. On our trip the conditions were challenging; the wind had kicked up some choppy water, which made...More

Went snorkeling with mantas and it was amazing, indescribable really. The ride back with the stars was also breathtaking. Amazing staff, felt like old friends. Went back for whale watching and was just as impressed, will be recommending to all friends and family.
