About Glass Bottom Boat Tours
Our 45 ft. (13 meter) aluminium glass bottom boat was designed to carry 40 guests, with an easy entry onto the boat via a loading ramp the is lowered to the beach, when the boat is bow to the beach. There are 7 large viewing windows for a comfortable & clear view of the fish & coral, as we travel slowly over the reef. The boat is never more than a 100 meters from the beach, with qualified crew.

Really recommend it. Bea and Carl are very friendly and knowledgeable. Must do for families with young children or elderly people, especially if they do not want to venture into the water but still want to see the corals
