Mr. Anonymous

We were lucky enough to see a bunch of sea turtles and different fish. Our toddlers loved the boat and were able to see everything.... The staff was very informative! Thank you! more

Amber P.

the hosts were very entertaining and friendly they made the guests feel like they were trying to make the experience as positiv...e and special as possible went out of their way to get us to some dolphins - which was the highlight of the tour more

Raja Family

the hosts were so friendly and informative...they made the extra effort to make sure we saw dolphins... just a very exciting, p...leasant experience :) more

Raja Family

The water is so clear we could see many different types of fish in the water. The captain was great at helping us spot turtles swi...mming on the side of the boat and would stop for us to see them. It was a lot of fun. more

Mayra

My family and I enjoyed the boat ride. The staff was amazing and the scenery was beautiful in the water. Would definitely go again...! more

Tehra

I purchased this excursion for my dad for Fathers Day....it was the perfect gift. Frankie was a great captain...lots of info and ...very personable. He let my son drive the boat...which was a highlight not only for my son...but also my dad....a very proud grandpa! I would highly recommend this trip. more

Amy B.

We had a great time on the glass bottom boat. Only regret I wish we could have stayed all day looking underwater at the coral and ...the fish. Great crew and knew a lot about the different fish we were seeing. My grand children loved it. Good adventure for young and old. Relaxing and beautiful. more

Linda

We enjoyed this trip. It is only approximately 30 minutes. We were able to see a fair amount of fish and other sea creatures inclu...ding turtles. The guide was very knowledgeable. However, we seemed to ask the questions or not sure if they would have shared much. That in my opinion should be improved upon. more

Sherri

We had a great time. We were not sure what to expect. The staff was very friendly and full of information. We were able to see ...Manta Rays and Giant Turtles and many fish. Would recommend for 1st timers to the island. For repeat visitors, a longer boat ride would be recommended as our 30 minutes went by very quickly. more

Mr. Anonymous

The whole family really enjoyed the boat ride, the hosts on the boat were excellent and we saw a lot of fish, turtles etc. they w...ere wonderful at engaging with the kids and answering all our questions. The customer service of the people we met at the hut left something to be desired. Aloof and not very interested in engaging. Which is fine, but they are the first people you meet when you get there—so—it made me kinda nervous, but the actual ride was fine! more

Big family with kids

Guides were great. Hard to see through glass, though.

LJKouri

Mark and Micah were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable! It made for a great time and they had great personalities! Great with our k...ids and let them help steer the boat! So fun. My only wish is that it was 1 hour or more. more
