Rated 5 out of 5 by Such great fun. We ( 2 old farts and our young daughter) took part in all that was offered; the talks, the guided snorkel tour, the glass bottomed boat, the touch table and of course the snorkelling ( all 6 hours of it ). The proof of how much we enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience was the fact that we were last out of the water when it was time to leave. You can't say much more than that. 28 December 2012
