This was a horrible...
Laura_C, Feb 2023
This was a horrible experience from start to finish. The bus ride was over two hours long, we were brought to a filthy location with broken toilets before boarding boats to the island. The island was nothing more than an overcrowded sand bar. We waited around for snorkel equipment and were given about 1] hour in the water. They served fruit and beverages from a dirty tub! On the return home they made a stop back for lunch at the same location with broken toilets! We were served a flow I feared lunch that nobody touched! Upon boarding the bus we were told about another stop and were forced from the bus and pressured to buy cigars and overpriced souvenirs. Luckily the entire bus refused and reboarded and demanded to be brought back to our hotels. Spending over four and 1/2 hours on an awful bus ride for maybe 1/2 hour of snorkeling is unacceptable. Then to find out we paid double what others paid was infuriating! We will never use this company again, and we will surely spread the word to our many family and friends!

It’s completely magical place w/ approx 2.5 hrs on the island to swim, snorkel or just rest. The clearest water I’ve ever seen. Felt safe and very enjoyable boat rides to/from the “island” sandbar.
