“Waste of a day”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Dead corals, very few fish in dirty water. People throw food in the water to attract fish which has made the surrounding dirty.

“Snorkelling heaven”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Loved this trip to see beautiful fish in the marine park. We only took the snorkelling package and found that we saw probably as many fish as those on the dives.

“No worth to go with the amount you pay”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

water is not clean...
once you get into it, all the rubbish is resounding you with the fish together.

fishes only have few types, not much.. all the coral is death or going to death...

baby shark still there, but no shark feeding and you are not allow to feed the shark and fish as well.

i don't think you can see those fishes and coral in the next 5 years...

you may go for it before it's happen...

“Great variety of life here”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

Though it doesn't have the best visibility, there is a great variety of sea-life here. Diving, I saw a banded sea snake, lionfish, 3 species of puffers, parrotfish, Emporor Angels, and many others. On the beach, the baby black tip sharks will swim amongst you peacefully and even eat from your hand. Cool place!
