Provo Dune Buggy Discovery

Underwater Submarine Adventure
Get up close and personal with a unique panoramic view of coral formations, tropical fish, stingrays, sea turtles and other fascinating marine life, all while staying comfortably dry aboard this glass-bottom semi-submarine. The island’s mascot Jo-Jo the dolphin might make a guest appearance too!

You just might reel in snapper, grouper, yellowtail, barracuda and other tasty treats on the Reef Tour. Or navigate the shallow flat and crystal clear waters to fish for the swift and clever bonefish on the Bone Fishing Tour.
