  • Very nice ride, the catamaran balances a little bit more nothing out of the ordinary, when we arrived at the dive platform we have option to rent the materials and even a raghs VC finds there:), very nice dive but the current and strong if you do not pay attention VC Will stay away from the boat, but outside this nothing wrong, the corals are very beautiful and it is possible to see several very different fishes, recommend the tour for those who like diving and hot water:)

  • Amazing experience. You can do the mask dip or with the cylinder. If you choose the cylinder you will live one of the greatest experiences of your life.
