I would give 1000000 Stars! Can’t say enough about this place. Bucket list ticked!!! Such a great day and we were looked after so well by our guide/host it wasn’t funny. I need to win the lotto so I can go back there for longer next time. Thank you for letting me get to experience this natural wonder.

Loved the day and the whole trip was great with an excellent tour guide. Would like to come back and spend a couple of nights on the island some time. One day was just not enough.

Very Friendly Staff. There was a lot of marine life. Hard coral, but a well taken care of "green zone". Rays, whales (seasonal), turtles, dolphin sightings. Remote and nice views flying into the area.
