Our catamaran tour took us to the marine park for snorkelling. Loved it. So many amazing and beautiful fish many of which were unafraid and swam right up to my mask to check me out. We'd love to go back sometime.

Went there on a party boat, which was our first mistake, but the only excursion available. The reef is dead and few fish to be seen. Don't expect any help from the crue with snorkeling.

Talk to Mr. Shim, the director and arrange for a glass bottom boat tour. They are very knowledgeable about marine plant and animal life and they have a friendly staff. This is located at Pier 1.
