Helpful and friendly staff
Plenty of fish
Highly Recommend doing the tour.,
Unfortunately the weather was not good. Raining and very rough sea. Families with small children (10) should have been advised not to go, as it was to choppy at the reef for the smaller kids to feel comfortable in the water. Also a lot of the of them got seasick.
