Amazing 2 hour trip and company fantastic at dealing with younger child who did not like the trip: after aborting first trip after 30minutes the company arranged for a brand new 2 hour trip without us even requesting. Great customer service

1h boat tour was amazing, definitely worth doing. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas we went to and the marine life. Whilst on the Indian Ocean part of the tour we spotted a whale - which was incredible. Would highly recommend.
