Our trip to Green Island was the most disappointing day of our holiday. The tide was out, everything seemed expensive, and our trip with big cat wasn't great. On our trip was the option of either Snorkeling or a glass bottom boat trip. I chose...More

I was really looking forward to this trip, and ended up having an exhausting day. The big cat catamaran is one of the most touristy boats I’ve ever been on. Primarily asian tourists and families with infant/small kids on board. Whole boat smelled of rice...More
