The Royal Tulip Beach Resort bus to the boat is approximately 2.5 hours away, some of which are on bad roads. Then about 2 hours by boat (they have pills for seasickness on board, but it is advisable to take them one hour earlier). In strong winds, the boat can fluctuate a lot. Once at the reef you will be dropped by a smaller boat at the dolphins (if there are, 50-80% chance). You can then swim for around 45 minutes with these approximately 60 dolphins. An experience I will never forget. The dolphins sometimes get very close. Wonderful to be able to swim with! Afterwards you get a delicious buffet on board and you can relax. You can then swim for another 45 minutes. You can also swim along the beautiful colorful coral. Back it is again 2 hours by boat and then 2 hours by bus. We had been on the road from 5.30 am to 7 pm. But this experience is more than worth the long journey and the rate!
The excursion overall went well even if we did not see a turtle or Dungong, the purpose of our reservation ... Small concerns regarding the precise charge at the hotel. Indeed, I received an email signaling our departure at 8:30 am 'while the guide was there at 7:30 am' ... Once on board the vehicle, we are kindly informed that we have to pay an extra because our hotel is out care area. It seems that it was stipulated in the email, after verification, it is not clear at all !!! Too bad for this inconvenience.
Lovely boat trip, with sun deck. Nice reef with wrecks to watch. Many dolphins:)
Beautiful experience, a high quality and well done tour. Well done!
Great trip only to be recommended. Unfortunately mostly overcrowded
