Not reviewing anything else but the glass bottom boat which doesn’t have a glass bottom, 16 euros is a rip off, hardly any fish, cramped seats, just trawls the harbour wall for 30 minutes, you will see more fish if you buy some fish food...More

A lovely trip on the glass bottomed boat (or as my. 3 and 2 Yr old called it, the submarine) saw lots of different fish, and lots of underwater delights! Well worth a visit and a ride!
