“Excellent Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Fantastic place to come visit. Even if you have never snorkelled before, you must do this. The fish are amazing and we were lucky to see a turtle close up.

“Plenty to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

If you want to snorkel or dive on the reef for a day its worth the trip here. Plenty of sights to see under the water. If you get a chance to go on the semi submersible do it.
