Went on the 17USD southern island snorkeling tour. The boat was overcrowded and seating was limited. Receiving your equipment was difficult as there was no simple system, instead... read more

We didn't had a good experience with the squid fishing. We booked a tour from 5pm untill 9pm, with 2 hours squid fishing and bbq dinner. Dinner was simple, but fine. But after 30 minutes fishing we had to go back to the harbor, because the guide said four people got seasick. We asked on the boat and no one... More

I definitely do not recommend this company. They were 20 minutes late to pick is up, which was only a big deal because we almost missed the sunset. The last 5 minutes we were able to catch of the sunset were the saving grace for this tour. The guide did not explain anything to us at all. We were given... More

Pick up from the hotel was more than half an hour late. Arriving at the harbour, all the other boats went out, and we were stuck there for almost one hour (waiting for some more guests). On our way toTurtle Island for snorkelling, we stopped a couple of times to pick up more guests. Snorkelling at the island was actually... More

I booked this tour after seeing the reviews and thought, oh no this is going to be bad, but it was fantastic. It was well organised, bus picked us up on time, guides were funny and informative. Snorkelling okay, not amazing, lacks colour, and marine life but still saw fish and some coral. The food wasn't amazing but for the... More

If you are short in time on your vacation, don't do the night time squid fishing. Food they served is cheap and not very good. Don't let them fool you into spending more money on the boat by buying more of the seafood. The boat that we were on only had 2 people that caught a tiny squid. One of... More

Got picked up by boat at 11. By 1pm were back. North Island was pretty miserable experience. Went to one island instead of two. Didn't go snorkeling as the equipment was in a very bad quality. Didn't go fishing as there was no fishing gear avaliable. Poor lunch with huge bowl of rice. Got back to the hotel. That's it.

Went on the 17USD southern island snorkeling tour. The boat was overcrowded and seating was limited. Receiving your equipment was difficult as there was no simple system, instead a hustle, however equipment was of an average quality. Snorkeling itself was fun, and the marine life was beautiful. Lunch was tasteless and unappetising but adequate for the price. The last part... More

As a family of 4, we did a Johns south island tour. We went at peak season between Christmas and new year but did not expect the boat to have 150 people on it. There was confusion on the bus when we were picked up which delayed departure. The boat got tangled in ropes in the harbour and we spent... More

We went with John Tours after a hard time to decide if we should do it. The tour has everything you should do here so we signed up. The pearl farm was a short but fun stop. Watching the ladies open oysters and take out the pearls was cool. Then its the boat tour and the snorkling was really bad... More
