Went there on a party boat, which was our first mistake, but the only excursion available. The reef is dead and few fish to be seen. Don't expect any help from the crue with snorkeling.

Talk to Mr. Shim, the director and arrange for a glass bottom boat tour. They are very knowledgeable about marine plant and animal life and they have a friendly staff. This is located at Pier 1.
