Newest Review: ... We were keen to avoid the backpacker's party type trips! The Islands visited varies too as does the time you are allowed to spend in the water. After much research we choose to travel with Whitehaven express; a small family run company.

As such, he was the first to go cruising around the magnificent islands, ... Read the complete review
