Lovely experience In coral bay. Booking was easy, getting there easy, very attentive and passionate staff onboard. We're very accommodating to us and our 4 year old twins even when it came to snorkeling. The marine biologist was great ;)

Thanks for your review and comments. Yes, we are proud that we are the best and most popular way to see the reef. Having a semi-submersible vessel rather than a glass bottom is certainly a BIG advantage. Many thanks again, Peter.

Sub Sea Explorer, fantastic and knowledgeable crew who made the trip for us. 5 plus stars. The veiwing from the glass bottomed boat and the snorkeling was out of this world. Laid back crew making everyone more than welcome. Highly recommended.
