I didn't think the snorkelling was any better here than at the hotel, but i did think the food was better

This trip was expensive for what it was. Had a pleasant enough cruise to the island (40/45mins), looked idyllic. The main reason for going was to see the fish around the coral reefs near the shoreline as we do not swim to do the full snorkelling. Our Rep assured us we only had to walk in up to our Knees and they would be swimming all around us nipping at our legs. Not one fish did we see all day. Maybe this was because it was winter but this was to be the highlight of the trip. Lunch was OK, nothing exotic and no sweet, buy your own drink. Spent day on beach but only just bearable because of the wind.
