Yana Dorofeeva, 11 Apr 23
Amazing trip. I had a feeling this trip would be a highlight of our holiday and indeed it was. Fantastic crew, amazing ship, great atmosphere and food! Enjoyed going to islands I haven’t been to before.
Arielle Siegel, 29 Nov 22
Great experience. Very nice employees.
Phillips , 10 Sep 22
What an amazing day! The crew were brilliant, very helpful and informative. The snorkeling was more relaxing that a trip I had done to the outer reef. The food was great, and to see both dolphins and whales was an added bonus. I highly recommend this trip.
