The tour itself was very enjoyable. The chance to kayak up close and under some of the rock outcroppings was great. There was also a chance to snorkel while the other group was kayaking.
Only thing was I felt the groups were too big. Must have been 20-25 per group which meant when the guide was talking it was difficult to hear out on the kayak - especially if you were at the back he could have started talking by the time everyone had stopped kayaking.
The hotel pick up was on time and delivered us to the boat just as it was leaving. The trip out and back is 2 hours each way so that meant over 5 hours in travel time for this trip This of course meant much less time than expected on activities in the national park - so be prepared or take a faster boat.
The guide was German speaking and always favoured the Germans on the boat they always went first - I also found it hard to understand the guides English with German accent over the noise of the boat.
The kayaking scenery was breathtaking - but we should have been told more about the national park after all - there was 2 whole hours to fill us in on the way out. This and the climb and view of the emerald lake were the best parts of the trip. The snorkeling was just OK as it was not over a very interesting part of the reef and appeared to be just a way to occupy half the group while the other half kayaked.
There was always plenty to eat and drink on the day - snacks and lunch was very very good.The boat also provided a number of locations to sit, eat or rest depending on preference and didn't seam to be crowded at any stage.
Overall - an enjoyable day and worth doing
Great day. Was different to advertised as they only provided one short kayak. The first activity was a hike and we did not take appropriate gear. Bit we snorkelled instead which was good. You spend 4 hours of your day on a slow boat going out and back. My advice would be to take the speedboat option.
