The catamaran ride was enjoyable. I think we had a small group as it wasn't crowded at all, which was nice. We anchored off shore and were tendered to shore in small boats. At shore we did have to wade in the water a couple feet.
They had sodas, water, cookies, cakes, and fruit out the entire time we were ashore.
They usually split the group into two, half doing the kayaking and half the hike but since we were a small group we all went kayaking together first (some chose to stay on shore). They gave us a short talk in how to get on and paddle the kayak and what to do if we tipped over then we all set out. It was the first time kayaking for anyone in our family group and we all enjoyed it. We went out to the point of the island were we rested (in the kayaks in the water) for a few minutes while the tour guides came around and gave us bottles of water. It was warm out and the paddling was tiring. The guides also would come by and take your camera (if you had been brave enough to take it along) and would take a picture of you. Some in our party had disposable underwater cameras along. None of us took our good cameras. Some people did tip over but none of my family did.
After heading back to shore they got those together who wanted to go on the hike. They climbed the hill and said the view was good. If you plan on doing the hike you should bring good walking shoes with you. Sandals or flip flops aren't the best.
Those of us who stayed back either sat in the chairs which were under a canopy or played in the water.
The water was comfortably warm for swimming. There were also quite a few shells on the beach so we picked up some.
While we were there the catamaran had left and brought back another group so there was some overlap of tours for about 30 minutes.
We were tendered back to the catamaran for the trip back. Our family group of eight sat on the top with a few other people. There was a lot of space so many were laying down sleeping. About half way back the crew had those of us upstairs playing a game with a water balloon. We tossed it around and if you broke it or the music stopped playing while you had the balloon you had to get up and either tell a joke, sing or dance. I was the first one the music stopped on so decided to dance which was hilarious as the boat was rocking so much you couldn't stand up without holding on for long. Everyone was a good sport. They awarded us "losers" with a small pinata style donkey.
Overall it was a good excursion and we had a good time.
