Fantastic trip. Although their appeared to be a lot of people snorkeling, I never felt overly crowded. Fish in abundance and clear waters. Option of swimming with the sharks, I declined! 2hr boat trip from Penang was also very pleasant. All pick ups were well organized,

definitely recommend. Take sea sickness tablets though as water was extremely choppy and we were not forewarned. Everyone on the boat was sick

The whole experience was breathtaking, and you didn't need to be a great swimmer. The company was well organized and very friendly. The main person in charge was terrific. The snorkeling was absolutely wonderful and the variety of fish was amazing. Overall, the trip was well worth it and inexpensive.
