Get picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle and drive to the boat pier. Be greeted by the captain and the crew and begin your unforgettable sea voyage.

I loved the our boat although the 1 toilet was broken and I had to do a bit if plumbing myself! The crew was very helpful and constantly aware of where we where and what we did Our trip unfortunately were shared with a lot if elderly over weight people who dived into lunch and left me and my children with almost no main dish. They were also very rude and constantly starring at us The photographer was very good. I received the email within 24 hours. We really had fun with him

Excellent value boat trip, staff are very friendly and attentive. They work hard to ensure you have a great time and see the dolphins. At one point a pod swimming right underneat us! We swam to them close 3 times . Also the coral, 2 sites, is very pretty with a large variety of fish in abundance. Food was very nice too. Shame we had a 40 minute coach ride from Makadi Bay but don't let this put you off it's fantastic.

Such a lovely activity with amazing staff! They picked us up at the hotel to go to the harbor to swim with dolphins and snorkel. The food was mediocre but it worked! Snacks were NOT included, but you had to pay with fruit and soft drinks! The staff really did half the job, they were so lovely and looked after us well. Definitely worth the money!
