πŸ‘πŸ‘ My first time snorkelling and it was so sick! Enough instruction and help from the diving crew to get us going and plenty of freedom to explore to our own limits (and their guidelines). Saw so many sea turtles and other marine life, it was such an incredible experience! Would highly recommend!
