Great experience. Highly recommended

“My husband and 2 young kids enjoy the cruise. The tour was carried out exactly as they were described on their website, and even better when the owner Lisa took us sight seeing near the shipwrecks on a small boat, because none of us was doing snorkeling. They treated all guest with care. Lunch provided was fresh and delicious. ”
