Mystery Island, Vanuatu

Glass Bottom Boat

    hr Estimate Duration

Settle into a seat on a glass-bottom boat and observe the marine life that inhabits the coral reef surrounding Mystery Island. The reef is teeming with tropical fish, and the glass-bottom boat will literally offer you a window to the underwater wonders.

From the comfort of the boat, you can see the abundant sea life without getting wet. Another benefit to cruising on a glass-bottom boat is that the guide can explain what you’re seeing in detail. You might find out how oriental sweetlips got their name, what butterfly fish like to eat and how clown fish live in the venom-filled tentacles of sea anemones without getting stung.

The reef itself is a living organism not a plant, and there is plenty to discover about how it formed on the ocean floor, what it eats and its incredibly slow growth at little more than a quarter inch each year. Considering the size of the reef, you can imagine how old it is.
