Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic and knowledgeable crew, drinks at affordable prices and a great view. Only downside was the sunset wasn’t playing ball but can hardly blame the tour providers for mother natures failing !! Would highly recommend

We had an amazing time on the reef explorer glass bottom boat! Rosen was lovely and so good with the kids who were super excited to see Nemo and so many other beautiful fish. Rosen was able to navigate the reefs so well and we saw so much.
Great family activity and well priced compared to other tours.

We had a lovely sunset cruise despite the clouds getting in the way! Seeing Port Vila at night from the boat was wonderful. Andy the owner and captain was friendly and knowledgeable, giving us insights into some of Vanuatu’s history. He finished off by mooring the boat outside the restaurant we had booked for dinner!

We booked a 1.5hr snorkelling tour through our cruise ship and paid $140. Unfortunately our ship was late into port, something that was obviously out of the hands of the tour company. However it was the tour company’s decision to only give us 18 minutes worth of snorkelling so that they could make up the time.

It took us almost 20 minutes to travel from the dock to the snorkeling site in the most underpowered and therefore slow boat I’ve ever been on.

We were then taken to a spot just beside the main Chanel so that EVERYTIME a tender boat or other craft passed us we got a lung full of water down our snorkels. The site itself was just off of the eco resort in the middle of Port Vila harbour a site with a sprinkling of dead coral and a few fish. Nothing like you expect when paying so much for a snorkeling tour. It’s very sad as we could’ve paid $5 each to get a water taxi to the same spot and stayed as long as we wanted. It’s such a shame as there are so many amazing snorkel sites just outside of the harbour, but I dare say we couldn’t go there as it would’ve taken an hour or more in such a slow boat.

The Aussie guy who was running the show was there with us and instead of pointing out where we should go to find the best fish he was too busy talking on the phone. He initially said our time was going to be cut to just 25 minutes snorkeling but when it came down to it he called us back in after a mere 18 minutes. Close to $8 a minute for some really low grade snorkeling that took us well over an hour to get to from our ship.

I was so upset to have wasted so much of our limited time in port on this tour

Hi Screaming Violet Thank you for your honest review. Sorry that you did not get to enjoy the tour. When booking through a cruise ship you are booking their tour which is not priced by us. That is their pricing and their timing schedules - these things are outside of our control and we must stick by them so as you are returned on time to the ship. The boat the REEF EXPLORER is a Semi Sub and it has a huge displacement so people can go down under the waterline and look out the 4 large viewing windows. The Boat is not designed to travel at any great speed. It is pushing huge amount of water out of its way and large engines will not increase the boats speed much but will increase Fuel emissions. The tour you bought on the Cruise ship is the Semi Sub tour so you need to respect the boats ability in its speed. The $5 dollar water taxis are not tour operators and do not carry insurance to provide a tour like this. The water down the snorkel is a little outside of our control also, another unfair complaint to our business. I suggest instead of reviewing a tour that is NOT offered on TripAdviser but instead offered on a cruise ship to perhaps review their tour. Yes we provide the tour for them and we stick to their rules. Sorry you had a bad experience.

We did this on our recent cruise stop over in Port Vila and it was the highlight of the day, you will get seriously wet so make sure you have a change of clothes but if not you’ll dry out soon enough in the heat, it was a 30 minute non stop adventure ride with the driver really making sure we all had a great time, but also that everyone was ok, also had a short stop in the middle for 5 minutes to rest the hands from holding on while he explained a little about the island, will definitely do again if we return to Vila and will be recommending to friends heading that way

Although there had been some issues with the boat in the morning the Tropic Thunder Jet crew came through and gave us the ride of our lives. Make sure to take a change of clothes!!
