Great crew ; great lectures on marine life for kids . Very ecoconsciuos but would be more ecological to not print all pictures as some of them are wasted ; we bought our photo but the idea of evoconservation was lost to us seeing all the pictures thrown out

Our family had a great half day snorkeling tour to Molikini & LaPerouse Bay. Great & safe for kids. There were guides in the water. Staff and presentations were excellent. Food & drink solid (inc. great local beer & wine on the trip back to shore). $$$ are worth it. Rent the GoPro to capture the experience.

Strong winds and choppy seas. The staff were highly skilled and knowledgable. Felt safe and taken care of. Due to the poor weather condition, part of the trip had to be cancelled. However, we were all refunded half the cost of the tour. In addition, the staff did their best to make it an memorable experience. Would definitely book with them again.
