we at Blue Swimmer Adventure decided to pursue low-impact eco-tourism to try and do our bit to keep the island’s very special purity as long as possible by offering more green outdoor activities for nature lovers from around the world.

Yes we were on it a few weeks ago. If you gave them your hotel address they will pick you up from there. They don’t give a very exact time so it’s just a case of being ready in that time slot. Regards Paul
