“Nice day out”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

A nice change from sitting by the pool. My husband did the snorkelling. We had a meal there as well. It's a lovely well organised trip.

“Tropical Island”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This Island tour was just as good as visiting the island where the Beach was filmed in Thailand - actually better because there were WAY less tourists! Great snorkelling and really great team to get us there and back safely! Thank you!

“Fish at your feet and fingertips”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I loved the beach, the clearest blue, warmest water and the number and range of fish at your fingertips.

What's to dislike?

“Disorganised Too Crowded”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Too crowded, too many boats at the same time resulting in too many snorklers - disturbance to the swimmers, flora and fauna. Trip sold as ecologically sound and awesome experience.

Long delay in return to hotel which was actually on day of departure, therefore stressful.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Not much there but very pretty and relaxing day out. NO sunloungers, but free bamboo mats to lie on which makes a change!
