An essential part of a trip to Cairns

Friendly knowledgeable crew. Comfortable boat with good quality snorkelling kit provided for the trip, for both adults and kids. Saw some great wildlife at the two reef stops including a shark, and plenty of time to explore. The buffet lunch was good and some lovely cakes provided during the return journey. The talk on board by the marine biologist was very informative too. Would definitely recommend.

The crew was amazing, fun, knowledgeable! The intro scuba dive was the highlight of the day. It is like swimming in a giant fish tank. Glad we chose this boat, with not too many people on board. Thanks again

My partner and I got seasick during the trip, but I felt the staff were really nice and accommodating. They were very attentive when we weren’t feeling good and did their best to give us a good experience despite the seasickness. We ended up getting to see a bit of the reef, and it was definitely worth going and seeing it for ourselves.

What a great day, would highly recommended. The staff and crew are fantastic and looked after us from start to finish, making sure everyone understood what they needed to do while snorkeling and diving and helping those have a great experience that couldn't swim well. Good was fantastic as well, great job, thanks so much

All the crew were really lovely and friendly. Big thanks to Erin, my first time snorkeling and she had good patience as I'm sure I messed up 10 different things. Didn't take long for me to get the hang of it, was snorkeling on my own before too long. Really great to swim around and see the corals and fishes, I was pretty happy as it's my first time. I don't think I've seen so many fish up close ever. Great food, lots of variety and really nice fruit and brownies. Only thing I would suggest is man it would be nice to have greater quantity of meat. However overall can't complain too much, I went for seconds with the other stuff as it was great. Also the beers are normally priced which is always nice to see on a cruise. Great presentation on the way back, definitely learned a lot. Weather was rough especially heading back, but I'm definitely one who enjoyed the free roller coaster ride. There was also a girl working at the bar, I believe Phoebe? Now I don't know if I'm crazy or what, but I swear she looks a LOT like Meghan Markle - like a younger and much nicer version thereof.
