Great bloody day
Stella_O, May 2022
The most amazing experience swimming with two whalesharks and mantarays plus some beautiful snorkelling spots The guides were fantastic and lots of fun Great lunch provided also
Magical spotty fish
Jane_M, May 2022
Fantastic day and couldn’t fault the crew. A tricky shark and weather so not the easiest day but the crew did the very best they could and it ended well. Anna, shen, Jaz and Annabel were a great team. Wonderful seeing these young confident girls running the place. Skipper Brandon pretty good too. Hope you get a beer! Would recommend motion sick tablets if you’re prone.

Amazing experience
Emily_L, May 2022
Fantastic day, amazing experience and the entire crew were super! We managed to swim with 3 sharks and Shendell did a great job of capturing the experience for everyone.
WOW! Whale sharks!
Rowena_M, May 2022
Fantastic experience! Well organized, super helpful, enthusiastic, energetic and knowledgeable staff- Tim the photographer and bus tour commentator was great, the skipper was competent and hilarious, the female crew whose various roles included : kitting us out with wet suits, fins, snorkels and masks; acted as spotter/ pick-up person in zodiac; swimming escorts who led the groups to the whale sharks were all excellent. Anna was particularly empathetic and supportive of group members who needed a little extra help and assurance. The catering was delicious, healthy and conscious of varied tastes and needs. The champagne and beer at the conclusion of the tour was a fitting way to end what was a most exciting and memorable day!
