The tour in the Underwater Observatory was great. The woman talked so fascinatingly about the phenomenon and was just great. The boat tour was okay, the Sound spectacular.

Discover More Cruise - worth the extra, not for the buffet lunch (though it was pretty good), but for the Discovery and Underwater Observatory. The cruise around the Sound is pretty standard but the Observatory not only gave history of the Sound but also the creatures that you can see around here.

Really recommend the early start to avoid the tourist busses.

Such a waste of money, there is nothing much to see, not worth paying for at all, it should be for free, even then we would have rathered miss it. We all spent most of our time sitting around waiting to be picked up again by the cruise boat.

It is not very big and you don't need much time but seeing coloured fish swim in between corals (living ones) is a unique experience. The actual underwater tank is only a 15 metre circumference walk.
