I had a very nice time and I really would like to come back to glass bottom boat with JMR group and my own family.

Thank you.

The Guy was very informed and he talked about the diferent types of fishes there are in New Zealand seas and I also saw the different types of sea weed under the sea bed.

The skipper was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the view around was awesome. However, the view under the glass bottom was not as attractive as expected, partly due to too many heads reflected form the opposite bench, partly due to lack of various fish under the water.

Toke the tour with 5 year old son and found skipper very friendly, knowledgeable and definitely made the trip interesting and fun for everyone.

Suitable for all ages and fitness levels as comes right up on beach to get on and off.

A great way to view the marine life, the visibility wasn't ideal but Scotty the skipper made the trip interesting and enjoyable. Definitely a good idea to book over the phone or on the website if you're going in peak season! Special thanks to Jacqui for making sure we got seats on the last ride of the day!
