Great but only problem was that I did not receive any joining instructions. I only managed to find tour because a kind taxi driver took pity on me and made several phone calls for me.

Excellent. Guide met us at pier head as promised. Unfortunately, sea was choppy with strong current, so snorkelling was limited. (Only strong swimmers). View from glass-bottomed boat was great.
