It was easy to find. There is a snack machine on the boat and plenty of space on deck. In the lower compartment we were very squashed and I could hardly move. Nothing for people with claustrophobia. If you come down first, you have no choice in getting out or going up in between. The view was nice and you could see a lot of fish. The whole thing is explained in 4 languages and at each stop bait is put in the water to attract the fish. However, if you sit inside, you can't see very much. You only see a bit of the floor or the other cabin. That was a pity. Then it goes back on the ship and all in all I can recommend this trip :)

The booking for the excursion was easy and on some days it was definitely an advantage. The excursion itself was very nice. Everything was very good to see. Sure, rare animals would be spectacular, but that would be more of a coincidence. Generally a very good one good excursion under water, as well as a great return trip on deck ... through the bay.

Was very nice experience!! Too bad we didn't see any turtles or dolphins or seals. That's what you hope for. But of course it cannot be predicted. It is also a pity that in the second part, back towards the harbor, you no longer had access to the ground floor below sea level. Should be your choice, in my opinion!
