Epic day on the reef!

We had a fantastic day out on the reef. The yacht is super spacious for the amount of people that it carries and there are plenty of outside areas that you can sit in during the journey. The team are also all super helpful and friendly. We are qualified divers but we just did snorkelling and I managed to see reef sharks, turtles and plenty of sea life free diving. We also did the chopper ride which I would 100% recommend, stunning! Would recommend this for a great day out when in Cairns.

One to one guided tours through great barrier reef for people who don't know how to swim and have a fear of going in ocean. That was soo helpful . Trip was overall very well organised, lunch was good, everyone was friendly and helpful. The submarine tour was too good

Absolutely the best tour ever. From the moment we met Eddie, our greeter and cheerleader to the Snorkle and Dive manager to the photographer and everyone in between this was truly a special trip.

Very well organised. Staff were brilliant. The barrier reef was stunning. We were brought to two different locations and saw some gorgeous coral and fish. Got lunch after our first stop. Food was also lovely. There was an underwater camera and photos were available at the end of the day. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend.

Great experience!
Mitchell_E

The most memorable part for myself was the seeing the reef with my amazing girlfriend. They could have taken less people, as we bumped into people a lot. 100+ people is not ideal for seeing the reef. Scared a lot of fish I think
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Mitchell, thanks for your review, we are so glad to hear that you had a great time seeing the reef with your girlfriend. I am surprised to hear this as the reef areas that we visit are approximately the size of two football fields so there is ample room to snorkel in your own space!
