“Enjoyed our tour on this boat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Didnt see Nemo unfortunately but it was a nice 2 hour boat ride for our 2 sons. My son and husband did a bit of snorkling as well and the staff got some star fishes, sea urchins etc for the guests to pick up and look at too. A nice time at a reasonable [price

“Fun ride with Nemo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We visited Boracay this month. One of my main itinerary target is to check out this one of a kind boat tour which was featured on our local tour guide map. So we went out with my wife early morning heading to former boat station 2 location. There we find an orange booth which say "Glass Bottom Boat". Lucky for us during that day the sun shine mighty high. Using our MyBoracay guidebook discount we were avail at a discounted rate. The boat is station at the back of Boracay Is. nearby Bulabog beach. We took a local tricycle ride together with tour staff. Upon arrival at the port, you will see Nemo, name of the orange boat that will bring you on a couple of island hop. I'm so excited its my first time to see the bottom seaside of Boracay. As told by others, its a 2-hour boat trip. One hour boat ride about an hour snorkel dive activity nearby one of the small inlet island in Boracay. The trip includes a light snack and complimentary drink juice, cola & bottled water. Activity you will do during your ride beside lurking for real nemo swimming in their real habitat, corals, sea creatures, you have a chance for a short snorkling dive with free snorkel gear and life vest. I'll tell you guys the real beauty of Boracay is not only found on the beach but undersea as well. The tour is only held a certain time of the day and only one tour trip per day. Be sure to book as early as you can since it can be easily fill up.

“Great underwater view from the safety of the boat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This 2-hour trip is worth every penny. Be amazed by underwater sights while the boat is travelling to a spot where passengers can snorkel. Saw fishes of different sizes and colors, corals both dead and alive.

“Great way to see the fishes!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I had purchased a groupon voucher months before we visited Boracay. This was on our to-do list (Definitely worth it!). At first, I was quite disappointed that they had cancelled our initial scheduled trip because there wasn't enough people to take the tour, which meant we had to go the next day (our last day). I was worried that they would cancel it again and then we'd miss out altogether. I didn't even know they could cancel at the last minute even though you were already booked in!

When our trip finally went ahead, we had to walk through the water (about 70cm high) to get onto the boat. The "nemo" boat had a glass bottom where you could see all the marine life below. It would have been ok, but the boat was quite fast, so all you could see was the bubbles underneath.

We had an opportunity to go snorkelling- which was fantastic! Everyone in our tour (15 guests) were all in the water, seeing the beauty below. We all had life jackets so that was a plus.

The crew were very helpful and made sure our safety and enjoyment were #1 priority.

“Fish galore!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

They frequently advertise this activity (glass bottom boat day tours) as meant for those who would like to go snorkelling or diving but can't. But it's more than just that. The tour starts with a nice boat that's painted like a "nemo" fish. Kids loved it. Except for some slight problems with the motor, the boat trip was great. I thought initially that it was boring since all we did is just look at the debris in sea floor and the dead coral. Until we got to the spot with many live coral and loads and loads of fish. The captain of the boat really knew where to take us and at the island where we stopped we not oly looked at the fish and coral through glass but he gave us time to snorkel.

And because of the abundance fish, we really enjoyed ourselves. There were even snacks on board as part of the fee. And we really got our money's worth with this 2 hour tour.
