The captain gave informative commentary about the marine life. The glass bottom boat is stable and provides a chance for those who cannot swim to explore the underworld world.

I was really looking forward to this trip, and ended up having an exhausting day. The big cat catamaran is one of the most touristy boats I’ve ever been on. Primarily asian tourists and families with infant/small kids on board. Whole boat smelled of rice...More
