Good fun day out to the north island for fishing and snorkeling. We didn't have huge expectations given the cost (only £17 each max- can get for £14) and given some of the ratings here so we really just enjoyed it for what it was. Very decent boat (with sunbathing on deck chairs on the to deck) and a decent... More

John's Island Tours are prolly the largest and móst marketed tour company on the island. I booked with them because they had the cheapeesst south land tour at USD 12 and squid fishing at $15 and since I booked 2 of them I was able to negotiate a $3 díscount.The reviews I read are true down below... the south island...

We booked a fishing and snorkeling tour in our hotel. So, what can i say... First stop was a pearl farm. We had to listen to an bored lady who showed us how the pearl came out of the oyster. After that more than 30 minutes shopping time! For what? In the habour of An Thoi we changed to a... More

Did a snorkeling tour and was very disappointed. Firstly, the boat had well over 40 people (!) which raised concerns of safety. Not to mention it was too loud and crazy most of the times. We first stopped for a "fishing" activity in a place with trash floating. Amazing sight. In the end, no one catch anything (wonder why) and... More

We went on a tour to a pearl manufacturer, the islands in the south and finished with a visit at Sao beach in south east of Phu Quoc. The visit to the pearl manufacturer took 1 hour before we departed to the boat headed to the islands where snorkling and fishing would be arranged. The fishing consisted of 20 people... More

We had a great time with an English speaking guide at the snorkeling and fishing experience. The boat was very good, and the complimentary food served was surprisingly delicious. However the main attraction the coral was hugely disappointing. After swimming in Rarotonga's rich fauna (Cook Island) I could see that the corals here were mostly dead. Very sad sight which...

Twe did the lan tour 1 which comprised pretty much everything from pearl production to prison visit. We assume the initinary is the same with every operator. The major issue with our tour was that is badly organised. The group was humongous and we spend the first 1 1/2 h picking people up from different hotels. This included long waits... More

They say you get what you pay for. The snorkeling trip was cheap and cheerful. For a true snorkeling trip we should have booked with a dive centre. But having said that we enjoyed the day and met some lovely people.
