I had an absolutely amazing day on the reef daytripper! Being a solo traveller it was really important to me that there is a good vibe and friendly, small group on the boat - and that is exactly what I got! I was able to make friends easily with some of the couples on board, and the smaller group number meant I felt really included and not just one of 100. Paul the owner was our captain for the day, and he made it a fantastic time - a very dry and quick sense of humour and some great local knowledge made him a great host. Mikayla and Julian were our diving/snorkeling guides and they did a great job, especially with some of the guests onboard who were not super confident in the water - they spent the literal hours out on the reef guiding a tour using life rings to tow those that needed the extra assistance (talk about a leg workout), and pointed out some really cool things such as giant clams and starfish. We got the chance to see a reef shark, a turtle and multiple rays, as well as a beautiful reef teeming with life as you can see in the photos attached! If you have a GoPro I would highly recommend bringing it, or hiring the one onboard as you get some great footage to remember it all by. Food was amazing and filling, there was plenty of room for a second serve as well. After we finished snorkeling, a nice cold beer on the sailing trip back in and great company + conversation rounded the day out nicely. The only thing I would change is next time I know not to bring a banana on board
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
