Though the boat is a bit old, the staff was super welcoming and attentive. The food was great every single day. Beverages were inexpensive and delicious. The kayaking, squidding, fish village and beach were great activities. It was fun to get to know other tourists from Spain, Australia and Russia. Justin and Huang were excellent hosts and guides. Made great friends by the end of three days. Would come back again!
