The snorkelling was the best on the northwest side of the island, but you had to stay close to the shore in the rocks in the shallow water (4-5 feet). I saw a very small eel, baby lobster, small octopus and plenty of fish. A group beside me also saw angelfish. My husband went kayaking and the current caught the boat and it turned over. He managed to swim it back to shore upside down, but it was rather disappointing that the crew did not even offer to assist. The buffet included chicken fajitas, refried beans and fruit.
Caution: The trimaran anchored off the island and you had to take a rowboat to get to shore. The trimaran had no ladder, so it was very difficult to get from the rowboat back into the boat. The deck of the boat was very slippery and once you managed to haul yourself up approximately 3 1/2 feet to the deck, it was dangerous. My husband fell on the deck and scraped his leg and arm. Luckily the camera was OK. There were senior citizens who also had difficulty and had to be hoisted by the crew to the deck.
I really enjoyed an unplanned visit by a dolphin as the boat was heading back to the harbour.

Once at the Island, snorkeling, beach volleyball, sunning, and banana boat rides are available, as well as more drinks and lunch. There are more drinks on the trimaran back to El Cid. How could this NOT be fun?!
