Totally recommend the VAKA CRUISE lagoon tour - great crew, stories & history, food, drinks & company - swimming with the Giant Trevally was a highlight!

Excellent! Peaceful! Tranquil! We truly did switch off from the outside world. We stayed in an over water bungalow and had the best views of the lagoon. The serene water left us in a dreamy state for four days! We want to go back!
