I loved this tour. The boat was comfy and fast, the staff entertaining, super competent and chatty with lots of info about the reef. I snorkelled and took the glass bottom boat tour twice. I really enjoyed that there were people from all around the world on the boat, so plenty of interesting chats. We were the only boat in our area so it didn't feel crowded. The second part of the tour, in the more shallow water, had some absolutely stunning coral and wildly coloured fish aplenty, including some Nemo fish, which I wouldn't have seen without the staff pointing them out. thanks guys for an awesome day :))
