Green Island Adventure (87)

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

We had a fabulous day at Green Island & would definitely book with Travstar again. The vessel was comfortable & the staff helpful. We were also surprised that prices on the island were reasonable. All in all, a fabulous, relaxing day swimming with the beautiful turtles & thoroughly enjoying ourselves!
