The crew made the whole day enjoyable. From the enthusiastic ‘good morning’ from Eddie at checkin, comprehensive briefings, safety checks, good quality mask and fins, in water support from crew. The lunch was a nice mix of salad, fish and meat. Hot tea and coffee service. All the crew were smiling, happy and created and great atmosphere. Enjoyed the whole day.

We had plenty of time at both snorkeling locations, but simultaneously we did not waste any time either. The captain choose beautiful locations. The staff was very friendly; their marine biologist gave lot of interesting info about corals. The food was way above our expectations.

A rough trip out but the reef has been on the bucket list for years. Great to see and experience the reef and I highly recommend La Vacanza Travel. The staff are gorgeous and constantly checking in on everyone ensuring they are okay and enjoying the experience, the food was delicious and the boat was clean. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

My family and I took this trip, and we got to see Clown Fish, giant clams, Sea Turtles, and various other reef species. The food onboard was amazing as well. The only warning I have is that it’s a rough ride 90 minutes each way, and either bring your own or take the seasickness medicine they provide. I didn’t get sick since I took the medicine.
