    We were 8 and it was our first time snorkeling. These guys made it so exciting, safe and adventurous for us.

    Language wasn’t a problem and they constantly gave us tips that made our trip safe and enjoyable.
    Jamie is an awesome guide. Ask for him. 😊

    Snorkeling and canoeing were amazing. It was quite windy and the currents were a bit string but Yudai-san did what he could so we can still have a good time.

    Had a great time stand up paddle board and snorkel. Our guide, suzuki met us right on time to start the day, he was very friendly and a very great teacher. He got us set up to stand up paddle board and taught us very quickly, me and wife were standing up in no time, the water was beautiful. We then got dropped off to enjoy lunch and some shopping, then picked back up to the snorkeling adventure. The scenery was beautiful and we saw plenty of fish and coral, Suzuki was a great guide and always made sure we were safe and having a good time, at the end of the day we were dropped off at the terminal meeting point. Would recommend Suzuki to anyone who wants to go on an adventure.

    Staff are excellent. I would have preferred to snorkel from an island as opposed to the boat. Of course the boat was always there for us to climb board and relieve ourselves from exhaustion. Water and tea on board. Belongings were always safe. Did I mention the staff. Damn, I don’t think I have ever encountered staff who strive for customer satisfaction like these guys.

    We arrived and filled out a form to confirm our sea worthiness. I almost failed cause of a heart attack about 8 years ago. Finally, after a few minutes they agreed that I could join them in a snorkelling trip.

    I did have a glass or 5 of wine the night before, but shouldn’t be a problem. Did I mention the staff, they gave enough instruction for me to feel safe about snorkelling. I borrowed their gear, goggles, a snorkely thing and flippers. I was set. Maybe I worked too hard and tired quickly. I scarambled aboard for a rest. Plenty of water and tea on board, so I re hydrated myself. Felling better, I jumped back into the sea. Did I mention the staff. They were bloody marvellous. They supported my endeavour at snorkelling.

    The group did see turtles swimming, alas I was already on board taking my break. I would definitely use these guys again. I really can’t get over how friendly and professional they ALL are.

    I really hope the management read this. While I did not discuss remuneration with any of the staff, if it wasn’t for them this company would not exist. I hope you are paying more than they are worth.

    I would just like to extend my thanks to the staff for making sure my partner and I had the best time.

    What a wonderful experience! The dive site (IOP) had great facilities, we saw so many fish, crabs, squid etc. Morita was very friendly, helpful, and showed us a safe and extremely enjoyable time. He took pictures for us underwater too. This was our favorite dive trip so far! Highly recommend.

    This was an awesome experience! They took us last minute, and ensured we had a English guide. Bakku (probably spelling wrong) was awesome and super friendly. On top of that, he took photos of everything so we could fully enjoy the experience! We ended up seeing at least 7 sea turtles and countless fish on the reef! Would do again if we came back!
