Explore the undersea world of the island’s offshore volcanic reef, home to angelfish, morays, spotted eagle rays, and a swath of brightly-colored tropical beauties.

      Afterwards, enjoy a casually elegant gourmet lunch accompanied by live music before sailing back along the coast while keeping a watchful eye out for dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles, humpbacks, and pilot whales.

As you ride, revel in the sweeping panorama of majestic mountains on one side, and calm, blue ocean on the other.
