Great snorkel trip. I scuba dive occasionally and this is as close to diving as snorkeling can get. My wife doesn't scuba dive but she did this and really enjoyed it and was not scared at all.

Highly recommended! Such a beautiful coral reef to explore. Day trips and half day trips are well worth the short boat ride out and your prices are very reasonable.
