My sister and I booked this tour with some hesitation about being in the open ocean. Neither of us wanted to encounter a shark up close on our first snorkeling experience! To our relief, this tour was in Magic Island Lagoon, somewhat shielded on the ocean side with banks of rock to keep large sea life out. There was plenty of ocean life to see in the lagoon! We encountered many species of fish including the state fish, eels, starfish, jellyfish, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers. Our guide was laid back and put our concerns to rest and provided snorkels, goggles, wetsuit jackets, and fins for us to use. Would definitely recommend this tour to people snorkeling for the first time perhaps with some hesitation!
