We had plenty of time for snorkelling, and if you didn't want to swim, the guides did fish feeding under the glass bottom boats. The BBQ lunch on the island was delicious, and really filling. The coconut and pareo... More

The bottom glass boat has no point since you dont see much there but sand or dead pieces of coral. The... More

We really enjoyed our cruise with Captain Tama's. The snorkelling was awesome, the bbq lunch was really fresh and the organisers were flexible when we were unable to make our original time because of illness. Would highly recommend.

Great time! The crew were awesome and really put a lot into ensuring they're providing an entertaining experience for their customers. The highlight was snorkelling out deep with all the massive fish - we all LOVED it so much.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lagoon cruise on Captain Tama's. The crew were very funny and the made sure the day was very entertaining. Lunch provided was also great! The staff particularly Antonia were excellent and very helpful... nothing was too hard! They even made a special effort for our daughter who had her birthday on the cruise! Would recommend this...

One of the best tours that I have been on. The guys that run this are fun, friendly and funny. I didn't snorkel and stayed on the boat. The lunch provided was awesome. It rained heavily while at the lunch on the Island but they made sure everyone was under shelter and continued with the show anyway. Put this tour... More
