Great crew and great day out, food was average though. It rained in the morning so the natural pool didn't look that great. Seen massive star fish which made up for it.

Hello, Thanks for sharing your opinion. Actually, yes, sometimes, the natural swimming pool is a little bit murky but but fortunately it does not detract from the beauty of the site. Regards, Sarah

There's a small bar with rum drinks. They served fruit & chips on the boat. For lunch we had choice of grilled lobster or pasta. There were a few sides, rice and vegetables. And there was more fruit for dessert.
