You do spend much of the day in the van. It's an island tour. It would have been nice to stay a bit longer in some spots. Since we were our own van we didn't want to spend too much time on the beach (we were there about 45 minutes) and Yellow Bird was acomodating when we wanted to leave. We didn't pay to rent chairs. When facing the beach from the water taxi the chairs to the left (in front of the snorkeling area) are available for use.
The fresh bread at the end of the day was very yummy. Overall we thought the tour was worth more than $65 for the length of the tour and the amount of inforamation we we given. We definately had a lot of fun!
