- lots of dolphins
- friendly and skilled skippers
- the island was very pretty, and Crystal Rock is a really nice sight
- the lunch was tasty

- poor snorkeling site, few things to see, and the water was deep, so you couldn't see the corals well
- upon arriving on the island, we were told to wait for the lunch instead of going for a walk, we understood that it would be served shortly, instead we ended up waiting for an hour, instead of using the time to explore the island

We got to the Mid-sea on time and there were Dolphins and Dolphins and Dolphins to welcome us.
When my four year old daughter refused to enter the sea, the Crew kindly agreed to take care of her while I snorkelled. I shall Never forget this favor.
For the first time, I saw that the Dolhins swim in Perfect Geometric Patterns. And they they Change these Patterns flawlessly as they change directions or come to the surface......
The Dolphins are soo soooo Disciplined, I finally understood why they are called "A SCHOOL of Fish"!!!!
I am a Vegetarian and the Crew had packed a seperate delicious veggie lunch for my and my kids.
What I appreciate the Most {Aside from the Dolphins} is the fact that they did Not take us anywhere other than what was told......
NO NO NO Useless / unwanted stops at some Mall or Handicraft Factory.... ONLY Dolphins and Lunch ....
The Crew speaks passable English and Good French.

A very good tour. Would highly recommend that hotel pick up and drop offs should be included in the tour inclusions.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2017

It was ok but no quite like what I had expected. Food was not upto the mark, not enough snacks and trip to Benitiers island was more like a boring experience. Of course we enjoyed ourselves on our own but with little more info in the beginning would have made matters much smoother and better. I found it very difficult to find the place initially as the info given in the voucher about the reaching point was incorrect. The breakfast was horrible to say the least. Over all it was very hap hazard and poorly organised.
