This was a nice trip. The crew was very friendly and the boat was nice. The water was beautiful and it was a great trip. The snorkeling left a bit to be desired. Not too mush to see. Actually, the site was very limited.

Unfortunately the snorkeling had to be cancelled because of the weather. The sail was gonna be rough and there was no visibility. We did a land tour with the company on water island. The ferry runs on the hour and all aboard was at 5:30. We were told that we would make it taking the 5:15 ferry, but weren't so sure. Our guide saved us by borrowing a dingy from his friend at 5 and got us there with seconds to spare. We were soaking wet because the water was rough that day, but it was fun and at least he got us to the ship on time. Don't trust the locals if they say you have time and you're sceptical. Read Less
