    LUNCH: 8/10
    We had our lunch at the restaurant next to the Delphines 2 enclosure. A buffet lunch is included with the plus entry and it was delicious! The selection was good, particularly the seafood, the food was hotter and tastier than the buffet restaurant at our hotel.
    Drinks are included but limited to coffee and watery fruit juices.

    You also get extra tickets for drinks throughout the day. These can be used at the bars, restaurants and stalls throughout the park.

    SEA TREK: 7/10
    We then did the sea trek which is the underwater helmet walk. This was my least favourite activity.
    It is definately an experience if you are unlikely to go underwater any other way. For anyone not accustomed or comfortable being in the water this is the perfect opportunity as all you have to do is walk around on the sea bed holding onto a handrail.

    The best thing for me was being able to see the reactions of my family, some of which are really nervous in the water and would never have the experience of being submerged, surrounded by fish any other way.
    The guide takes a bait ball down so at certain points in the walk there are a lot of fish feeding and swimming around you as you pass through.


    Our whole group enjoyed it overall.
    We were allowed to take our camera down with us and one of the guides even took our picture with it.

    I personally have back problems and I felt that the helmets were heavy, uncomfortable and cumbersome. I found the whole thing to be quite disorientating and the noise inside the helmet is really loud.
    I had backache and a stiff neck the next day.
    I much prefer scuba diving to this. If you do dive unless you are doing this like we did as a "family" activity. I dont think you will get a lot from this.
