Fantastic, especially scuba diving.

This place is just like the pictures you see on postcards with bright sand and colorful fish and reefs. The snorkeling is great, saw a few turtles and thousands of fish, and it's nice to be able to swim back to the beach to relax for a while before getting back in the water. The Catamaran is fantastic and you should sit outside for the cruise out and back if the weather is good.

Great trip. Accessing the reef from the beach is a great idea, especially for those that are not that confident in the water.

This particular trip was cancelled but we went on the Agincourt cruise instea: really enjoyed the snorkelling, even though it was hard work! The water was very clear and there were lots of fish to see.

very nice tour with great experience snorkeling. However just a little remark: it is very difficult to snorkel from the beach and I prefer the trip to the pontoon as it was on the first trip.

Was great, staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing I would change would be how many small boats were used to transport us to the island. There were only 2 and it took a long time for everyone to get from the sail boat to the island. Apart from that it was great many thanks

Really enjoyed the snorkelling and felt that the day was very well run. Would have liked a little more information on our guided snorkel which didn't really seem to happen. Otherwise very good.

This was a really good trip, especially if you're wanting to see some turtles! The one downside is that it only involves the one location, so if you're wanting to see a lot of the reef, it might be better to book an outer reef trip.

Pity about the weather, as it was rather windy. The diving and glass-bottom boat were great, and the lunch was superb. All the crew on the boat were very very friendly and helpful. I would definitely do this again.

3 star rating: Worth doing

Tour was very organized, crew on the boat very friendly and helpful. Low Isles were beautiful and ride out and back was quite senic. However there were too many people on the boat and you had to wait in line to get off the boat, get on the glass bottom boat,get your lunch, and get back on the boat. Next time I would pick a tour with fewer people!

Sadly we expected a little better. While the staff were all very friendly and very helpful, the whole island and trip was a bit of a let down. I was hoping for a great day out but unfortunately the weather was horrible. The sea was so rough, most passengers were sick on the way out and not much to do on the island other than snorkel.
