Very cool structure with an amazing history. It is interesting to know how much the area has changed in such a short amount of time.

If you rent a boat this is a nice area to travel to. Very nice area to see and realize it was apart of a house at one time. Its a unique landmark

Captain Marco is an excellent tour guide. He gave us ton of information about the area and the dome houses. We saw the dolphins jumping, picked up a lot of seashells and saw the dome houses up close. We had a wonderful experience.
