Semi sub and glass bottom boat were great. Also boat to island was good. Amazing fish and coral. Lots of good pictures.

This tour was amazing. I would love to come back, the staff was very friendly and the things to do in here were very exciting, especially the sea walk.

Great day weather wasn't too good but still had a good time. Staff and crew very helpful plenty of food at buffet lunch would do it again.

This was one of my favorite days on the reef! It was here that we actually saw sea turtles and many types of fish. While on this tour, we did the glass bottom boat and the semi submersible, and I think that you could do one or the other seeing as they both showed and seemed to be very similar. If going to Green Island, be sure to swim to the point of the jetty because that is where we saw all of the marine life and turtles. Also, it will appear for a while that there is nothing in the water but fish, so just make sure you swim a ways out.

Nice ride, expect to spend 2.5-3 hours in transit round trip. You'll have to plan carefully to take the best advantage of the approximately 5 hours you'll have on the island.
There's a national park on the island that should be taken in but that can be difficult, depending on the activities you've scheduled through the tour provider.
Here's the deal: Lunch is served from 11:15 AM to 1:15 PM and the glass bottom boat and semisubmersible rides are about 30 minutes each. Those activities can be scheduled in ways that pretty much preclude taking in the park walk, which was a problem for me.
Recommendations:
First, go snorkeling if you want to do that.
Second, take a nice walk in the national park.
Third, eat lunch at your leisure at the café on the island. The boat's lunch was no gourmet feast and I found the limited serving time to be incompatible with my preferred island activities.
If you want to tour the island zoo, do that fourth but be aware that it's just a few large crocs and native craft exhibits.
Lastly, schedule one of the last semisubmersible or glass bottom boat rides so you can maximize your island time. FYI: The semisubmersible ride had better views than the glass bottom boat.
