Absolutely loved this day, all the staff were extremely kind. Dinner was lovely with burgers and sausages with salad available. There was the option to upgrade to diving instead of snorkelling. Overall, it was a lovely day and I would definitely do it again!More

There is a glass bottom boat available. They pick the best reefs on the day. It all depends on tge weather and sea conditions. We went to hastings reef and breaking patches the day we went.
