The underwater viewing boat (I think it is called the semi-submarine) was terrible. You were promised viewing of the fish and all you could see was plenty of rubbish floating by. It was not pleasant at all. Many of the guests attempted to leave it early. NOT worth doing.
Snorkeling: TERRIBLE. once you got into the water, you were surrounded by rubbish from the island. You had to swim past empty coffee cups, plastic bags, food wrappings...it was disgusting. Once you swam a few metres away from the boat, the quantity of rubbish decreased (but there was still a wrapper here and there). There was perhaps a handful of tiny fish, but nothing worth swimming through rubbish for!! We came back to the boat pretty promptly and feeling very disgusted. Thank god we didn't opt for the scuba diving option. That would have been a significant waste of money and time.
It was a prompt pick up from the hotel and once we got to the dock we were given wrist bands and had a short wait before we were boarded on the boat. The food was faultless and plentiful and the staff were always charming and keen for a friendly chat. There were numerous times to go on the village tour. We chose to go just after lunch and our group was only 5 people which was nice and intimate. I thoroughly enjoyed walking around with the guide who was informative and friendly. The opportunity to drink some fresh coconut water was a nice treat before we were guided back to the boat.
