This is a great trip out. There is the opportunity to swim in the warmer water near some undersea vents, but for us the highlight was drifting along looking at Parrot fish, various rays and listening to the very knowledgable marine biologists explain it all and point out things you wouldn't otherwise have spotted yourself. Two hours went very fast.... More

Great experience with a highly qualified team. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it so much we repeated a second trip.

My girlfriend and I both own a PhD in Marine biology and were very... More

Staff seem unknowledgeable. Very poor info is given throughout the tour. Very little of sea life is seen. You´re better off snorkeling where you´ll see the same as on the boat and save alot more money. Definitly a tourist trap.
