Jackson Reef and Sunken Island 
Perfect family day out, Robinson Crusoe style
Jackson bay and reefs are awesome for snorkeling and scuba diving, the reefs are pristine and good for snorkeling or diving (6 to 50ft).
There are several coral reefs in the bay with tropical species on them ( some days a lot, some days a little less, but at the moment you will spot some parrot fish, blue Cromis, trumpet fish, sergeant fish, damsel fish for sure).
We start at 8Am from the dive center or 8:15 directly at the boat for the snorkelers and cruise to Jackson bay ( 1 hour on the catamaran , 20-25 minutes on the fast boat). Ride is scenic following the coast.
Once we arrive in the bay, depending on the conditions we will decide on which reef we will go snorkeling or diving first.
We will stay approximately 1 hour on that site.
A snorkel leader with safety equipment will be in the water with the snorkelers and divemaster/instructor in active status with the divers
After the first site, we will head to Jackson beach, which is totally remote (no road access) for snacks ( cookies, cakes, fresh fruits, sodas, and a Cuba Libre if you wish). After this you will get the choice in between hanging out at the beach for chilling, exploring or snorkwling a nearby reef or going back on the boat for a second snorkel / dive
8:15AM - 3:PM
Includes boat trip, snorkeling equipment, snacks ( fresh fruits, cookies, cakes and chocolate sauce) and water on the boat
