The tour was OK, the weather wasn't great but the island is beautiful and the coral reef is amazing. The staff were helpful and the lunch was great. There are a few things that I didn't enjoy with this tour, the boat filled to capacity so nowhere to sit, you have to shuttle to the boat for lunch so we only had 45 mins to snorkel and walk/see the island, felt rushed plus have to wait with the other 150 people to get on a 16 person shuttle. Overall I was disappointed but glad I visited the island.

A little disappointed at the lack of color in the coral. Otherwise, the trip was a nice day out on the water. Interesting commentary from the marine biologist that took us out.

Went early December as season coming to an end so boat only 30 passengers as opposed to 100 or so. Crew incredibly friendly and helpful, equipment ready to use, explanation and supervision for snorkeling excellent. Glass bottomed boat with marine biologist, as with a walk round the low isles.
Tea breaks, lunch provided on board, superb day out. Highly recommend

The overall trip wasn't that bad....the crew on our boat were great, the trip to the reef was good however, we had a very very low tide on the day we went to the Low Isles so we couldn't really see much coral....disappointed to say the least!

This was a great day out and the only disappointment was the limited visibility while snorkelling on the reef.

This trip was excellent - once we arrived at the Low Isles. Unfortunately it was very windy and many people suffered with sea sickness, including me!
However, once we arrived at the Low Isles, the trip improved. Our lunch was very good and very plentiful. The sea was rather cloudy because of the weather but we managed to see some coral from the glass bottomed boat. We had a tour round the island before boarding the boat for our return. Although the sea was still quite choppy on the way back no one suffered with sea sickness. Another excellent trip.

All good, but very hot in November. Unfortuantly once you go to the outer reef, do a cruise looking at the crocidiles , there is not much else except if your wife likes fishing. On a positive note, all the restuarents and pubs sold good food at reasonable rates.
