It was me and my boyfriends first time snorkeling and I’m happy we went through with it! We felt safe in the water the whole time and the location was nice. We were hoping to see a turtle but I still loved seeing all the marine life and coral
All the staff were very hospitable and knowledgeable. Tiger, our snorkel guide, was terrific. We saw all kinds of great fish and even a sea turtle!
