Not too impressed with the diving. Went to Shark point and Brain corral. Visibility only 8-10m, not too many colorful fishes. Nice nudibranchs though.

We went out on the glass bottom boat and it was an exciting experience passing through the channel where the ocean is really deep so the waves were abit rough - this was scary and exciting at the same time. We got to see various types of fish, star fish, coral and also an opportunity to feed the fish. You... More

A nice trip out in a glass bottom boat, where you can see different types of fish, coral, and star fish! And you even get a chance to swim/snorkel once you are out in the sea! A good trip out.

a glass bottom boat to the marine park was a good experience - however, the cleanliness on this side is not very impressive. Waters not very clear.

After reading the previous reviews, I'm starting to think that I went to the wrong place! We rented a glass bottom boat for some snorkeling. When arrived ( after bumping into a few poor coral on the way), we were let to jump in. The boat driver gave food to the fish which is a no no when it comes... More

We booked a glass bottom boat through travelers beach hotel and were joined by a lovely Kenyan couple on the boat. We stopped at the sand bank for swimming, very beautiful spot. Captain Rambo and his Assistant were really helpful and also spoke good English. He was very informed about the different types of fish, the tides and seasons. We... More

The water is not that clean I had expected, but you will have lots of fun seeing a beautiful scenery of the coastal area from the boat and floating around the water to see underwater. The company which is located in Voyage resort (I didnt stay in the resort though) charged reasonable prices and showed great customer service! For example,... More
