What a fantastic day we had! Seeing a seeturtle during snorkling, having a good buffet lunch and go on a seaplane was a great experience. The crew was very professional. The wether wasn't too good to see the Reef with the seaplane, but GSL were so generous that they let us go the following day to see the Reef after all. What a perfect service that was. 5 stars are more than deserved by the staff.
