We did the 10:30am snorkel. We had a great time snorkeling with the fish and turtles! Lots of turtles! After snorkeling, the crew gave us great drinks and time for relaxation! Would highly recommend especially for the value! Thanks for a great job, crew!

Great crew, friendly, helpful. We saw plenty of turtles in about 5-10m depth. Straight off the beach, out to the site, have a snorkel then jump back on board for some beers or Maitai's Highly recommended
