Fanrastic tour!! Not so much danger as we seated most behind seats, and enjoyed much wave and sea animals. Especially 9year old my son was very excited to this tour. Thank you for this great experience for us.

Process for collecting bike and snorkel gear were super smooth and easy. Staff were super helpful and refund was lodged and returned in a timely manner. Highly recommended!

You don’t need to download the app. Everything goes through email. I will uninstall the app after this. However, the service and all were excellent, really value purchase.

Highly recommended! Absolutely amazing island. Important to prebook the bike hire if you don’t have your own as there was a lenthy wait time.

Friendly crew, even will take care of small details like sunscreen lotion!!
