What a disappointment !!! The day we went out, it appears half of those on the cruise were family or friends of staff and their children, which in itself was not an issue, but for me it all went down hill after seeing some of them arrive with a chilly bin and box full of alcohol and then before we...

At first I thought we'd crashed an evangelistic Christian conference, "áre we having a good time??", lots of clapping and guitar playing. After a few minutes confusion we worked out we needed to push past everyone standing around and pay then return and pick our snorkelling gear. Once out on the Lagoon, the commentary was great, lots of talking but... More

This was a gorgeous day out and added excitement was the staff finding a turtle which was untagged. They brought it in for the conservation department workers to tag and release. The snorkelling was just fantastic - I would love to have been in the water longer, but the island show was excellent too and so so beautiful.

we had the best day out. The guys running the cruises are hilarious, and the Crystal clear waters around the reef were out of this world i couldve spent twice as long in there. Back to the island for a delishous BBQ and a hilarious show. Definitely amust do will be coming back again.

These guys are a crack up! Singing, laughter, and snorkling in muri lagoon. BBQ lunch and entertainment. Did I mention they are funny as all hell? I only wish the snorkling had lasted longer. I could have spent all day in the water!

Fun bunch of people. Loved the music and the jokes. The lagoon cruise on the glass bottom boat is a long ride. They offer you free snorkeling gear, but you could take your own gear, if you wish. The snorkeling experience was good, but not fantastic. We couldn't see much corals or vibrant sea life beneath. I am giving an... More

From the start the staff were just there to make a great day to the tourists, nothing made you feel that this was what they did time and time again. Was just like a new day, a new experience for this group of people. Value for money

I can't really swim and had never been snorkelling so I didn't know how this was going to go. Luckily my kids are all good swimmers so I knew they would have a good time. Well the snorkelling was really easy (I found) and fascinating to watch the multicoloured fish of all different sizes and the big eels hiding in... More

If you are doing the lagoon cruise for snorkelling and actually being in the lagoon, I wouldn't bother with this cruise. The staff are fantastic and the tour is very entertaining, but towards the end does get a bit boring. You are only snorkelling for about 40 minutes and the fish are spectacular, you could spend much longer there. Recommended... More

A terrific fun day out on this glass bottom boat. The crew are all fabulous they are very entertaining & you will have a good laugh. The snorkeling was sensational & it was nice how the crew looked after those who did not want to jump in the water & made it interesting for those who stayed on board. Lunch... More
