    I was supposed to go with friends but they pulled out. So i went on the trip solo. It was the best day ever. If you love snorkelling then this is for you. Shops and restaurants on the island. Suggest to take your own food as buffet is pretty basic but still very good for the price. Would definitely do it agian.

    Brilliant day - even got to see plenty of turtles on the reef. The team on the boat made way for us to have a buffet lunch (extra fee) which they didn't have to do. A bit more help with the best place to go snorkeling would have been good - but we found it eventually! Great day had by us both.

    Perfect day at Green island. Semi submersible was led by a marine biologist who provided many details about the fish and corals we were seeing up close. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Best of all was swimming near the shore by the sea grass where we saw two sea turtles, a sting Ray and a shark. Highly recommend.
