Glass Bottom Boat to Blue Bay Marine Park Package Description
This Glass Bottom boat trip departs every day directly from the Blue Bay public beach, offering very easy and quick access to the Blue Bay Marine Park. The boat trip takes less than 5 minutes each way, offering you maximum time to enjoy at the Blue Bay Marine Park.
Once at the Blue Bay Marine Park, you can choose to stay on-board the glass bottom boat, or to enjoy some swimming and snorkeling. The boat trip is done in the calm east coast lagoon where you would have about 1 hour to spend inside the marine park. Once you reach the bay of Blue Bay Marine Park, you will feast your eyes on some of the bluest waters you will ever see. Since this trip departs directly from the Blue Bay beach you are sure to save precious time on travelling by boat, making it the ideal option for families with young children or for those with very little time to spare.
There, you can decide to see the underwater world onboard the boat through its glass bottom, or to jump into the water for some swimming and snorkeling which is highly recommended.
At an average depth of 5.5 meters, with crystal clear water offering great visibility, the snorkeling conditions are ideal. You will have a great view of the reef, fish and of large selection of corals (there are more than 50 different species of corals at the park!).
All these make the glass bottom boat trip at the Marine Park a wondrous experience.
