Schnorcheln am Korallenriff, viele unbekannte, farbige und in Formen enorm abwechslungsreiche Fischwelt. Korallen in verschiedenen Formen und Farben. Sicher nicht wie am Great Barrier Reef, aber sehr faszinierend.

Sortie snorkeling très sympathique, nous avons pu rencontrer plein de variétés de poissons, discussion en amont avec présentation des poissons potentiellement rencontrés et sensibilisation sur le bien-être des coraux.

Meeting at the diving Club. Everyone was really nice! We received our gear and a small coffee. Driving with own car to the port, leading boat and got out in the ocean. We saw some whales and Dolphins. Arrived at the destination, we got a very interesting introduction about the place and the inhabitants! Afterwards we got into the water. (Maybe 45 mins of snorkling) On the way back to the port we got some water and tea. Thanks for this great experience!
