Samara is not the best place for snorkeling. The company does a really good job though. Our guide was nice. Unfortunately the coral reefs looked damaged. It definitely is not a must-do here. 3/5

The service was absolutely fantastic. They were very helpful setting us up with dates and times. We happened to be the only tourists on the tour this time, so we had the guide to ourselves. It was like hanging out with a friend. He was super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better time.
