WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING
I am an avid traveler and i mark this as one of my top 10 experiences in the world! I have been on wildlife cruises, I have been swimming in open water, I have done shark cage diving, and I have seen dolphins... I thought thise would be in the realm of all the other experiences, and I was completely wrong! This was easily one of the top ten experiences of my life and I highly recommend this to anyone who can swim.
