We were actively encouraged to reduce our environmental impact and respect the environment which we were lucky enough to see (more)Gareth Jones
Everything was fantastic but the most memorable part was the diving. We went diving every day and saw lots of coral and fish. Staying with this operator was also very relaxing.
