Cancelled but replaced with glass bottom boat tour

Cancelled trip by management apparently due to a lack of turtles in the bay, but got taken on a glass bottom boat experience instead which was wonderful and the tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable and very friendly!!! Great experience, spotted some rays and some turtles and lots of fish and HEAPS of coral!!!
