We couldn't choose better!

Awesome experience, the crew is very professional and friendly. They looked after us so well. Two days trip is awesome. Hips of snorkeling and diving. This guys are great teachers. If you would like to try scuba diving for first time they are perfect for you. The spots on the reef are unforgettable. They take max 12 people on board, so it make a nice, cosy atmosphere. Thanks a lot guys!! All the best from Michal and Olivia.

Great !

Amazing crew. It was my first experience of diving and it was amazing ! I don't speak English very well but the crew were really pedagogics and very friendly. They brought us in different places in the reef, the spots were really great, we could see a lot of fishes and marine life (some stingray and turtles as well). We dived 5 times. The life on board was really cosy and familial, the group is small and really nice. The food was good and enough during all the trip. I recommend a lot this team.

Okay

It was great to see the sunrise doing the overnight trip. The boat was small but was cozy enough to fit 12 passengers plus three staff members. As the boat was small, it was easier to feel seasick and the travel out to the great barrier reef took longer than larger boats. The food was great, mainly Coles branded food/ingredients. Cleanliness was just okay. The staff would frequently check up with you to see if you're okay. I received great assistance with my first time snorkelling. My only real complaint would be the excessive smoking by staff members on the boat. Most of us were uncomfortable with it but felt bad to say anything. Please be aware of customers who have asthma. The type of customer service you get is different. The staff are friendly and very casual. Similar to the service you would get at a back packers hostel. If you would like the five star type of service, this is not for you. If you would like to see the sunrise on the great barrier reef, I would reccomend coral sea dreaming. However, if you are strict on time and cleanliness/ customer service is an issue, I would suggest booking a larger vessel such as silverswift (I joined silverswift two days after my coral sea dreaming trip finished). Overall, I think it is a good experience for first time divers at the great barrier reef as you do get a lot of personal attention there.

Hi Jenny, Thanks for your great review we are glad to hear the staff took good care of you and that you had a wonderful time snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef.

Awesome Crew!

The crew was amazing! Lots of fun! Food was great. I was the only vegetarian on the ship and they cater toward my needs! They help me overcome my fear of water... Now I feel comfortable snorkelling and diving (did my introductory dive) Amazing trip! Would definitely book again when I am back in Cairns. Correct me if I am wrong, I believe the cruise travel to different locations each time ?

Hi Chih-Yao, Thank you for your great review! You have had an amazing time which we love to hear about! How great that we can help you overcome your fear of the water AND you got to do your first dive! YAY!! We would definitely love to take you back out when you visit Cairns next. We do not have any set itinerary for the tour. It depends on the weather and tides, but no two trips are the same! Safe travels and hope to see you on the high seas again some day The Dream Team
