An expensive tour but worth it. Seaplane trip, speed boat rides across the waterfalls, feed the sharks, tour of the bay, beautiful lunch. Was just terrific. It was on my bucket list to do and so happy I did. Any age.

No tours in the Wet Season. I’d check with them and book, as some tours are booked out ahead of time. Also note that there are different durations of tours - overnight allows you to see both incoming and outgoing tides.
