The reason most of the photos of this excursion show schools of sergeant majors is that the crew is feeding them off the side of the boat. This should be against the law as it is a bad thing to do for the fish and the eco system. Speaking of the eco system, the ship is spewing exhaust, making people... More

Glass Bottom Boats are a great way to see the underwater reefs if you do not know how to snorkel or dive. However, during our visit, the driver almost hit several snorkelers that were snorkeling the reef. I understand that he was trying to show passengers a good time, but he is not respectful of those in the water. Several... More

A friend suggested we try this out and it was actually quite nice after my friend repaired their engine. About an hour of looking at fish and divers around a couple of reefs.

This tour off the west side is a total pleasure. We found it ourselves and booked on the beach for just $35 pp as opposed to $80 pp thru the cruise line. Wonderful reefs and a variety of colorful fishes, turtles and corals. If you don't snorkel or scuba this is the way to go. Our party of 4 had... More

This was a beautiful trip, very clear water. It was a bit rocky when we went, fortunately I took some motion sickness medicine before we went. If you are claustrophobic, this might not be the trip for you. the bottom part of the boat that you go to view is very small, but if it gets too bad, you can... More

The tour was great! The Marine Biologist was very informative, and you could tell that she loves her job. The boat was nice, and you could very easily view sea life from both sides of the boat. The ocean water was very clear, we were hoping to see more marine life, but we didn't, however we saw some fish, and... More

Boat was very nice in that you could easily see out of both sides with no obstructions. Having a small group made it even more special. Guide was nice and very informative. About a 30 minute ride to dock and 45 minute boat ride.

Brilliant boat trip, guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The only downside was the mini bus driver then suggested a trip round the island and because the 3 other couples said yes we had to to go along too - I had purposely booked this as I wanted a trip that was not too long for my autistic son.
