    Jill_M
    , Apr 2022
    Pleasantly surprised. The cruise was amazing thanks to the knowledge of the skipper who had a marine biology degree. She was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to on all things reef and islands. She also knew the best places to take us. Would have given 5star if we had seen a turtle!

    We had an absolute ball on this tour! Both the guide and the shuttle driver were very friendly and informative, and neither of them got annoyed by my sons 100 questions! Absolutely loved it, seen a huge amount of reef and was even lucky enough to see a few turtles and jellyfish! Will definitely come again.
