Wonderful experience. Grandchildren completely enthralled. Blessed to see turtles close up and be able to feed fish with crackers. Can't rate experience highly enough.

Imagine a tour on a glass bottom boat that takes you out onto the marine reef and you get a chance to put on a life jacket and snorkelling gear to go swim with fishes and turtles. I wear glasses and was worried that when I took them off to put on the goggles that I wouldn't see the underwater... More

This small boat picked us up from our hotel beach on the West Coast and took us to snorkle at the wreck and to see the turtle/s and fish. I much preferred this smaller more personal boat. The captain was very reassuring and Lorenzo guided me to all areas, with the safety lifebelt. This was very reassuring, for any of... More

Had a great time on the boat! We had gone out with a top-rated big boat tour earlier in the week and enjoyed snorkeling with the turtles and over the shipwrecks...but this snorkeling was just as good at a fraction of the cost! It was a great second time out for us. We saw more turtles than our first time... More

Abbi, Milo and I had the best experiences of our holiday with Monica and the crew. Firstly we went swimming with turtles and snorkelling on the ship wreck, Milo said it was the best day of his life. This was quickly beaten two days later when we went out fishing, which is now his "best day of my life". They... More

Took the combination Glass Bottom Boat and Island Tour and it was a very enjoyable day. Saw so many colorful fish but the turtles were "hiding" that day. Touring the island afterwards was so enjoyable. Friendly, informative guides.

This guy is unbelievable. Friendly, knowledgeable (he suggests to answer any question about sea biology), he is full of wisdom. And he made our journey real fun. He even has persuaded my wife to snorkel. Swimming with turtles is unforgettable.

Amazing trip. Not too busy at the two sites when we there in the morning. First stop was with the turtles, which was simply beautiful. Then to a wreck to see coral and amazing numbers of fish. All equipment provided and everyone helped to make the most of it, including those less confident swimming / snorkeling.

The Captain and his son Lorenzo welcomed us aboard their boat 'Shamon Too' at Folkestone Marine Park . We were taken to a turtle feeding area where we were given life-vests and snorkels to swim with the turtles as they were given some food. The turtles came close and are used to being stroked. We also had a couple of... More
