Did this tour through Aqua World. We were out on a boat with a glass bottom, cool! That day the seas were rough but snorkeling was still great. 5 people on our boat had a little trouble with the waves but there were 2 guides and one driver that stays with the boat to pick you up that are in the water with you, very safe. The statues are a bit of a swim from one another, but with life jackets on it's very doable, even without experience. We then went to an area that was very easy to swim and saw lots of fish, that was almost better than the museum. Thought it was great, the guides are very polite and concerned for your welfare. Drinks and snacks on the boat.

Snorkelling in the sea was great and looking at the structures
The fish were so pretty in the reef

Fun - just the right amount of time too. You don't get as close to the sculptures as the photos lead you to believe though.

Such a great experience. If you are not PADI certified and don't want to spend the money getting the certification go this route. You can see everything just as clear and it's so beautiful. Just be prepared to swim as there is a lot of swimming involved. This day we also saw the reef and all fish.

The guide and boat captain were great. They did an outstanding job and the trip was outstanding. The seas were a little rough but the guide did everything he could to ensure we had a great time and saw the museum and some coral reefs in the area. I would do this again if the opportunity presented itself. Highly recommended.

Having never snorkelled in my life - I was a bit apprehensive - no need. The level of patience was phenomenal. The boat ride was exhilarating. Information about the museum would have been great. The museum itself was breathtaking and you get to see a bit of the coral reef as well.
Word of warning: check the cost of travel for the distance between your hotel and the port.

The guides were very attentive, making sure we all had water during the trip there and back. They also gave a great tour of the museum and were able and willing to answer any questions we had.

The water was very choppy/wavy when we went out to snorkel that day, but the boat crew made it feel very safe and they were very professional/fun overall. Although we only saw a very small part of the museum, the fun, exciting and dizzying boat ride back made it worth the trip!
