Owner description: This is Vanuatu's best half day tour. Everyday, the Turtle Reef air conditioned coach departs Port Vila at 8.45am We are bound for Havannah Harbour in North Efate, to board Vanuatu's largest Glass Bottom Boat for a true Adventure Cruise. ​ Turtle Reef takes you to a place where time stands still and local villagers still paddle their outrigger canoes. Snorkel over a protected coral reef, home to a wide variety of living corals, colourful tropical fish and sea turtles. This is some of the best snorkeling in Vanuatu. If you don't swim, see it all through our spacious windows to the sea before we visit a deserted tropical beach. Later, we'll cruise back to the Wahoo Bar & Restuarant where you will have one hour of free time to have lunch or to swim. (Lunch is your own expense). Our bus leaves at 1.30pm and returns to Port Vila at 2.30pm. You will have a lifetime of memories. Bring a towel. Fins and snorkeling masks are provided. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL.

This tour picks you up from in town and transports you in a nice comfy bus to pick up the glass bottomed boat, where you are taken around Havannah harbour to offshore islands for snorkelling. I chose this as I cannot snorkel and I could at least see the coral and fishes. This tour is suitable for all ages snorkelers, swimmers or just observers alike. Well equipped safety conscious boat and crew, to be recommended.

From when we were picked up at the wharf in Port Vila to when we were dropped back, was awesome.
Marlon, the bus driver and tour commentary, was great. Full of knowledge and the history of the areas we past.
The bar/Cafe was very good with advice and reasonable prices for food and drink after our snorkeling and Vatu is preferred but no pressure to purchase anything.
Although we did not see turtles, we were advised that this maybe the case, two of our party did. But the snorkeling was awesome especially if you move out and explored.
Highly recommend this tour. Will do again.

Absolute perfect half-day on the water. When we arrived to Wahoo Bar, Chrissy (the owner) greeted us. She made sure all passengers will have flippers and explained the 'tab' system for drinks. Boarding the glass-bottom boat was easy. It was a short ride to one of the beautiful beaches in the Havannah Harbour, followed by snorkeling (ask for a full-face mask), then an informative show & tell about coconut! At the conclusion of the tour we were invited to have lunch at the Bar (at own expense) - suggest to go with the daily special! Highly recommended. Added bonus for the day - snorkeling with sea turtles!!
