    It’s like Maldives even if I have not been there yet (based on the pictures that I have seen) and the value’s worth it! I did not even feel that it was a 3-hour ride going there and going back!

    The experience is once in a lifetime especially the Fireflies. Tour guides can only speak chinese, but thanks to the drivers because they are translating every word in english. Foods are not that good.Overall it was a fun experience, dont forget to bring insect repellent or some food to eat.
  • Marla Chesa 16 Apr 2018
    It was a pleasant trip for me, the tour guides was very helpful when we go for snorkelling and taking care of me because i told them i cannot swim. Thanks to friendly and cute tour guide name Apple 😄 Apart from that, the food and drinks can be improve better in future. Provide more mineral water especially after done with activities. The island is recommended to visit. I am surely will visiting again soon!!

    5/5 stars!! Amazing experience! Mantanani snorkeling was so nice because of the fishes and beautiful corals. And the Kawa Kawa river cruise was so worth it because of the fireflies show at night plus the view of the stars, its like you could see all the stars during the cruise.

    Hotel pick up was on time 7am, however we transferred to a tourist bus and had to wait for 2 hours because the vans had to pick up the other tourists. We arrived at the port for the jetty boat ride around 10:30-11:00am so it took roughly 2 hrs of waiting and 2 more hrs of travel time. Jetty boat ride took around 1 to 1 and a half hr to get to the island. The long wait was totally worth it! The island is so beautiful. Though the 1st snorkeling spot had jellyfish and we werent able to enjoy it and it was limited for 30 mins only. Next stop was okay with limited time as well. Went back to the island to eat lunch (around 1:30-2pm) changed clothes and rest. Left the island at 3:20pm.

    wonderful mantanni island tour.beautiful waters... much better than sapi island mamuk islands. the reefs island totally blow my mind. first time seeing blue corals!

    This tour is not for people who are passionate about snorkeling and want to have active outdoor experience. Travel from KK to Mantanani took more than two hours. We arrived to a large and beautiful coral reef but instead of giving us fins they gave life vests and were getting nervous if I wanted to explore reef and swim more far from the boat. I don't see a point of traveling so long if then you are supposed to stay close to the boat and have not even one hour for snorkeling - sea was calm and other boats around so it was not dangerous to swim further. Monkeys and fireflies watching was annoying because so many other motor boats in the river and people were encouraged to make a loud ovation for fireflies... couldn't hear any nature sounds. Just people screaming. Food was good, guides were attentive. If you want to observe wildlife and can swim, get to the island on your own and your experience will be much better.

    The snorkeling is good. The staff is helpful. they helped taking care of my three years old kid and played with her so that we could do our snorkeling by ourselves for at lease several minutes. But better prepare some snacks with you when u go because the food is not as expected.
