The boat is well set up with good view from underneath. We saw lots of different fish and even a couple of turtles. The trip takes you over to the island opposite to see the fish and then you take a trip around the bay. A good couple of hours for the money

We were just unlucky I think. The main attraction to this trip is the sighting of turtles ...which unfortunately just didn't happen for us. Lovely clean boat, cleanest toilets I've ever seen on a boat too. Nice and relaxing and the staff were very pleasant. Nice way to while away an afternoon.

The boat is unusual as part is submerged to allow you to see below the sea water line.We saw a turtle swimming in the sea and numerous fish. Really enjoyed it. Well worth a visit.

What a fascinating trip!! What a great idea and opportunity to see the fish from a different angle. And seem them in their natural environment and feeding. The trip is well worth it. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was a smooth daily. Would do it again !!

Excellent experience and good value . Saw lots of fish and when everyone shouted 'Turtle 'if one was spotted , the boat stopped to allow good photographs as turtle came close . Also interesting to see underwater rock formation .
