Excellently managed, the sights are incredible. Craig is a person with concern. The entire staff conducting the sea walk are a delight to deal with. The snorkelling staff a bit indifferent. The sea walk is highly recommended.

Staff all really lovely and caring - especially if you are boat sick! Food for lunch was pretty average so if you are fussy definitely pack some of your own. Saw 5 turtles and some really amazing marine life

I believe there was plenty of room to walk up the ramp to the catamaran and plenty of room to walk off to the barge where your adventure begins. I also agree with everyone else's comments.
