It was exactly what we had in our mind to do, we stopped twice for snorkeling and enjoyed the coral reefs and spent enough time for each activity. We spent two hours in the Orange Bay but it was more taking pictures rather than swimming. It was a fair price for the tour and lunch was as mentioned and they had all day coffee and sodas. It was a great crew and great experience overall

Overall the trip was very nice. The team on the ferry was super nice and helpful. If you don't want to snorkel you can stay on the ferry. Eating lunch was fine too. Orange bay was nice but got a bit crowded over time. The only drawback was the trip to the ferry, my husband, small child and I sat in the front with the driver where there were only 2 seats because in the back of the small bus everything was full. And on the way back we were dropped off on a busy road opposite our hotel and the driver said we had to walk on ourselves. maybe they could have let us get off at least somewhere safely. But the ferry, the team, the food, everything was great! Also suitable for small children!

The pickup was flawless. Arrived on the boat we had to wait a long time (40 minutes) before we started. Luckily we were one of the first because it was very crowded at the end and shady spots were scarce. I saw nicer reefs while snorkeling, but it was still nice. We were never alone. Music, food and drink were all on board. Orange bay is a beautiful island. watch out!! In the water there are small fish that don't scare you when you nibble. Eating and drinking is not allowed there (bring your own). Despite everything, it was a beautiful, successful day and the shower in the hotel was the cure at the end. Spending the whole day in salt water is very uncomfortable at some point.
