Our snorkel trip was AWESOME! Flynn and Matty were excellent hosts, that have a true passion for the reef and ocean. The guided snorkel was great because they knew where all the best spots where. And Flynn has such a great knowledge of Low Isles and was totally interesting to have as a guide in the island. It was very relaxed, a great feed and we had lots of laughs. Thank you so much guys...truly appreciated. 🐠
