Unlike the other ziplines I've read about, they do not weigh you here.... More

David was a big help as he recommended best places to visit. He even arranged our transport for our 2 days stay. Our driver is very reliable and helped us in negotiating with the locals. Best...

Tanguines Lagoon is the home of the Marine Sanctuary managed by the Bureau of Fisheries. They welcome tourist for a short tour. They are proud to bring you around.
