Great way of seeing the underworld if you can't dive or swim. Able to take all family ages. Seated in a half sub half boat trip into the world under water. The fish that follow the boat, things you don't get see to. Worth the money as not expensive to do n the kids love it.

We really enjoyed our trip on the boat, lots of fish to see and lots of information on the walls to help us identify them.
We were lucky because there was only the four of us on there. It's a very small space, and if it had been full I think it would have been quite claustrophobic!
It would have been nice if there was a guide or someone to explain what we were seeing - my 3 year old really enjoyed it, and the kiss from a sealion was a random added bonus.

The journey under the water was an absolute waste of time. The same species of fish followed the boat from the harbour all the way around and there was nothing else to look at!

At the end you can have a photo of yourself with a sea lion which is great. Extra charge of 6 euros mind. The only thing saving this experience.

We chose this trip at short notice after our prebooked excursion was cancelled. The sea was rough and unsuitable for us to go out but we trusted the judgment of the staff. We were told that this trip would be an hour on a glass bottomed boat (booked at last minute excursions) but it was actually 18 minutes in a glass bowed boat with little air (particularly when the person next to you is being sick from the rough ride). We saw sea bream and a jellyfish- definitely not worth the 20/25 euros that we paid! Also did not like being sold pictures of parrots or sea lions while we waited...

We decided to go on the glass bottom boat which included the seal show. Due to the seal enclosure not being ready we did have to do the glass bottom boat on one day and go back for the seal kiss another day however this was not a problem for us. The boat experience itself lasts for about 20-30 minutes and we saw quite a few fish and squid. The views under the water were beautiful, and then we went up on to deck to feed the fish. The staff were extremely friendly and we found that the views of the harbour were also gorgeous. The kiss of the seals was the best part of the experience, the seals were amazing and the kiss was cute, the pictures cost about 6€ however they do deals e.g. We had 5 for €24. They sent the pictures via email by the next day. I would definitely reccommend this and we can't wait to go back and swim with the seals next year :)
