Our hotel recommended us this Neptune underwater boat trip, and that we should speak to Aja(?) at the Tala Bay Marine, who was very helpful and friendly and got us two tickets to the boat for 20 dinars. She said that the best time to go on the underwater boat is in the early morning. The first reason is the sun - its brighter. The other reason - the water is cleaner and you can see much more. They told us that the boat's maximum capacity is 26 persons and on our trip we was just 10 people and it felt like a perfect amount of people for this boat. So try to be in a small group, the lesser people is better.
You are going to see an old shipwreck under the water. I believe it was 15 meters long. There is a lots of different fishes and you are going definitely to find Nemo on this trip.
The captain was glad, positive and friendly. The guide was a little bite noisy and spoke too loud. That's why we are giving just 4 points.

We are happy that we chose Neptune Boat, it was a nice and entertaining trip.

Observe that there is lots of crap in the water too, like big plastic bags, car tire and even a funnel. I am not joking.

It was a nice boat trip! You get to see the different types of fish and underwater life, the crow helps by explaining the things around, different type of corals and amazing colours! They give you snorkelling time if you asked for it!

The Neptune Boat gives you a unique chance of the diving experience from within a custom-made boat where you get an hour and a half's worth of a close look at the corals and wildlife of the Red Sea. The guide on board is really friendly, helpful and willing to answer any questions you might have. The view from the boat is absolutely amazing and you feel like you could almost reach out and touch it all. NB: Call and book in advance just in case! Don't miss out on this experience - if you don't want to dive, this is the next best thing!! And it only cost 20 JOD (in 2011) for an adult, which is absolutely worth it!

I did this on 10 september. I was a bit dubious about this but it turned out to be a very pleasant and interesting trip. I can't snorkel or scuba dive so it was the next best thing, far more fascinating than i'd imagined with friendly and good-humoured staff. You set off on deck and wonder how it's all going to work then you go down into the glass sided hull and eureka! Free pick up from my hotel too. A coupe of tips 1. when you get onto the boat sit at the rear(stern) as you'll then be first to go downstairs when it 'submerges', 2. When you get downstairs sit on the right hand side as that's what the side the commentary will be referring to.

The boat ride and views underwater were really nice. The tour of the reef including a shipwreck, sunken tank and fish was great. The crew was super friendly and even drove us back to our hotel free of charge so our kids didn't have to walk in the hot sun. The ride is only an hour and a half which is plenty of time and doesn't take up the whole day.y only complaint is that the guides could have been more knowledgable about the sea life we were seeing. Overall a great experience.
