Their trip highlighted optional tours and activities like parasailing and a banana boat ride at Managaha, a hike to Forbidden Island, scuba diving, an island tour, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking.  Other activities included a cultural dinner show, sunset dinner cruise, aerial tour, jungle tour, ATV tour, self-driving tours, and a visit to Godfather’s Bar.
