I liked of the amazing places visited but disliked with the excess of sexual jokes by the guides. In addition, the transportation between the hotel and the boats were made by an really old truck, looks part of adventure but had much smoke from the motor of the truck, which caused some ladies feel bad.

Go for the fish feeding at 10am on Wed. Pick up your gear at the pool bungalow and make sure you get dropped off at the end of the road at the Lagoonarium. The fish hand out near the ladder

Max was a phenomenal guide, providing a fun day of snorkeling and relaxing at the lagoonarium. This is a great way to see some of the places you might not snorkel up to on your own and get up close to fish you may not otherwise see during your stay. Our tour included swimming with black tip reef sharks and sting rays, snorkeling in an amazing coral garden where Max fed the biggest moray eel I've ever seen, snorkeling in the lagoonarium with turtles, beautiful fish, and more rays and sharks, and a fantastic bbq lunch on the beach. What a fantastic day!

BRING YOUR OWN SNORKEL GEAR AND FLIPPERS!!! We were not told this, luckily we brought our own mask and snorkel but not flippers, so unfortunately they made us swim only in our flip flops (so that we didn't step on sea urchans). It was difficult to swim against any minor surrent that we encountered.

We did the half day tour, so we did not eat on the tour. Just a couple of snorkelling spots and the lagoonarium.

The fish spot was a shark feeding spot. Lots of black tip reef sharks, large sting rays, and beautiful butterfly fish. The unfortunate thing is the amount of people here from your boat that can't swim, drag the rope down, and thrash around! My wife and I are pretty good swimmers, but we were quite uncomfortable with the whole experience!

The second spot was over the coral gardens. Beautiful corals and fish here. Could easily be reached by kayak for the adventurous, but nice site.

Finally the lagoonarium. Very neat site for seeing many animals in one spot, but unfortunately you really got the sense that they were all very much in captivity! The animals are picked up and put on display against their will. They are also poked and shaken so that they move around, and not just sit in the corner.

Again great tour to see things, but it won't be everyone's cup of tea!

We were greated by an unpleasant and non commercial woman. Poor animals in captivity. Please go for snorkeling and you will see mantas just at 200 meters, sharks at the pass and different kinds of fish and even corals.
