Very peaceful and environmentally clean. A real credit to the local people to maintain a pristine environment. The weather was not that kind however didn't stop us from seeing things. The glass bottom boat was excellent, The Chase and Time tour fabulous, Peter is a great tour guide and representative for the Island, even his dad jokes were good. The deep sea fishing was not on, very disappointing when told prior to arriving it would be. Boats being cleaned, fixed and unavailable on arrival. We stayed at Somerset Apartments. Good, clean, all facilities to self cater again clean and quiet. Food prices what to expect on an Island, restaurants that were open provided good food. Mt Gower was extreme fitness required, my friend did it, just made it back. There could be more fitness ratings on the signs into the mountains as the Kim's Lookout and Malabar were strenuous walks for 50yrs plus.

Thanks Dean for taking my wife an I for an unforgettable trek to the top of Mount Gower. Dean took us at short notice and for this we are immensely grateful. The trek was well organised and ran like clockwork. The views on Mount Gower were just spectacular. It was a very tough hike which made it so much more satisfying to safely complete.

Both trips were exceptional and very professionally run. We saw lots of fish and some turtles on the glass bottom boat. Some people snorkelled and they were world looked after. The round the island trip was done in a boat that was very well suited to the possibly rough conditions. Photos were taken which were in sale. They were very good quality.

Fabulous two hours spent snorkelling in the south part of the lagoon & outer reef. Three different sites visited, where we were with an abundance of beautiful fish, rays & the odd small Galapagos shark. Healthy & varied coral reefs. Skipper was patient with beginners, informative & helpful.
