The castle was amazing! I went there 2 years ago, this year, and I'd do it again and again and again.... The historical view is magnificent, and the snorkeling there is amazing and very beautiful 😍❤ Such a great place for snorkeling 😀❤

Hi, the price depends on where you stay because you book from the yacht or boats in the hotel. If you went check with the front disk in your hotel for more info. They should have daily trips twice a day or so.
