My partner and I stayed on Bokissa for 8 nights recently and it was everything we'd hoped for. Diving was amazing, as was the snorkeling. You can do as much or as little as you want.

I just had a great 5 days here with my wife and we generally enjoyed the experience. Did some excellent dives with the Bokissa dive masters and particularly enjoyed the Henry Bonneaud wreck as both a day and a night dive. The island also offers an enjoyable bush walk around its perimeter and allow 45 minutes minimum to do it.... More

Thanks for your response and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and diving - it really is a special, beautiful place isn't it?
