Great food with even better views. Definitely go at dinner time. You get to see the beautiful reef fish before the sun goes down. Once the sun starts going down the bigger predator fish come in.

We stayed at Kuredu and the speedboat transfer (there and back) was $25 per person. You'd have to check with Innahura because it may be a different price.
