We decided to try this to visit pigeon island. It was a pretty pathetic experience. It was alright to try once in my life, but I would never do it again even for $5 Euro. It's more like a ride for children. I can't remember...More

To start with, this is a tour for those who don`t have an opportunity to dive or snorkel in deep water so we were there with our small kids hoping they still do see more than we normally did when snorkeling by the shore. The...More

It was nice, and inexpensive at 25 euro per person, but overall it was average. Short experience with watered down Planteurs on the route home. The snorkeling equiptment malfunctioned for both my husband and I where it would not suction to our face, making it...More

We enjoyed the glass bottom boat ride to Pigeon Island. Comfortable seating and good viewing of the coral and fish, though the hurricane obviously had done some damage, according to folks who had been there before and were disappointed this time around. If it's your...More

This glass bottom boat was the second one I have ever been on; the first was in Cabo San Lucas. In comparison this was much better, you actually sit in the clear hull as opposed to looking down through a glass bottom. The boat takes...More

After a stunningly beautiful drive from Fort de France, the Nautilus was a huge letdown. The boat was so packed that we got to go below for the glass bottom view in shifts. The boat kept moving, so there was no opportunity to enjoy the...More
