Amazing experience

What a blast, what an experience and the people were amazing. Definitely the highlight of our two weeks trip on the Sunshine Coast. Food and service was fabulous. Attention to detail for people snorkeling and being able to cater for different levels was impressive. The fish life around the wrecks was incredible better than snorkeling on the Great Barrier. Don't hesitate - book this and go.
