“Good Fun With A Great Guide”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The one hour trip on the glass bottom boat was a good experience with a character of a guide. Alek Nowak the owner of the boat seemed to enjoy the trip as much as the paying guests. The water was clear and the variety of marine life we saw was extensive. I would highly recommend this tour.

“Awesome Fish”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Would highly recommend this boat trip. Alek (owner & tour operator) has an amazing knowledge of the reef, coral & fish within 'his office'. Highlight was seeing the Tomato Clownfish & a huge Grouper fish.

“Dora the Explorer rides the Glass Bottom Boat”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Just a 5 min boat ride off shore to enjoy this breath taking sight. Alek with his many years experience puts you at ease straight away. He promises and delivers, knowing and respecting the Ningaloo Reef environment the way he does. A good way for the young, the old and everyone in between to see the reef environment. A definite MUST DO when you visit Exmouth.

“Something Fishy”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Cost was very reasonable, the staff lovley and ran everything on time. I am not confident on boats so was happy to see it wasn't as small as I thought it would be. The bus trip out there was on time and some commentary made the 40min trip go fast. Safety instructions done well so felt even better. Little nervy when I realised the skipper looked more like the scientist from Jaws movie, but I got past that.

Coulours don't show up from the boat, those who dived said it was amazing. The view was good from the large glass area so I was happy to see the underwater world and not too fussed on lack of colour. The skipper was very helpful with description's that were informative but also fun, he took us to see some extra things also which was good of him, made it even better value.

The whole trip ran on time and was very very pleasant. I may even learn to snorkel next time, I feel the crew would be good to learn with.
