I went on this tour as part of a shore excursion on a cruise. It was because of this tour that Port Villa was by far my favorite stop. The staff were kind and knowledgeable, especially Mahlon. Snorkeling there was beautiful. With colorful coral and many fish. If I ever find

Although we were staying at Iririki Island which has free snorkelling we took the chance to go on this tour to see the other side of the Island. As a family of four who have snorkelled in New Caledonia, Great Barrier Reef, Fiji and different sites in Vanuatu this is definitely

I spent a week in Vanuatu and overall was sorely disappointed. Prices are high, I couldn't find a place that did NOT serve burgers, curry, pizza and pasta and I was targeted by a local driver who was a little too familiar and inappropriate with his texts, tried to get me drunk

I have to agree with you that Vanuatu can be quite expensive. Unfortunately island living means that everything from fuel to all the food not purchased at the local market (which is a lot) alcohol, cleaning products, construction materials - just about everything - is brought in from overseas and the additional shipping costs and import duties are very high for a little port like Port Vila. I am surprised you did not think our reef was exceptional. We are regularly complimented by well travelled tourists about our precious reef and personally I have never seen water as clear as the South Pacific - certainly not anywhere in Asia. Its a shame Vanuatu did not live up to your expectations. It is not for everyone. Thank you for mentioning that our staff were friendly and that our skipper did go out of his way to snorkel with tourists looking for turtles. They are swimming about in their natural environment here in Havannah Harbour. We make it clear on our brochures that we do not keep turtles in captivity. I do hope you took home some good pics and some good memories. Chrissy

Fantastic day with a very friendly crew - the restaurant that they stop at has virtually nothing vegetarian on offer (they have hot chips), but that's not Turtle Reef's fault.

Thank you for your much appreciated feedback. The crew will love your feedback. We are aware that the Wahoo Bar has limited Vegetarian meals on their regular menu and if you can tell us you are vegetarian when booking the tour we do try to give the Wahoo Bar advance notice and they generally try to have one or two special vegetarian meals on offer that day.
