The attractions here are the glass bottom boats and underwater observatory tower, in addition to the beautiful views. The kiddo enjoyed the underwater observatory tower but dreaded the glass bottom boat probably due to the choppy seas. We came in the early morning after reading...More

We do scuba diving so I didn’t had big expectations for the observation tower, but in fact many fishes can be seen and the water is very clear. Worth it definitely

Not worth, no coral, some little fishes can be seen from underwater tank. The tank is very small. You may spend only 10-15min here.

We went with three kids, skipped the glasbottom boat and went down the underwater observatory. It was worth the money but not much more. The dive center 'island breeze' was great, they take small kids snorkeling.
