One of best experience ever! Crew is super friendly and careful! Ioved the fact it was almost all females S2 we got to swim just twice with the shark and it was AMAZING! I was hoping we would be luckier, but anyway was super worth it and it doesn’t depend on the crew this part… We even tried to swim with the dugongs but no success, we spotted one tho! The lunch was quite substantial and nice! Tea and coffee available… And the special treat with bubbles wrapped it up very nicely the day!
