16th November trip

Excellent day, best day of our time in OZ. Great crew team, helpful and friendly. Only intended to snorkel but ended up doing 2 superb supervised dives with Kumi. Seeing the GBR from 7/8 meters down was awesome. I cannot thank the team enough for making our day a truly remarkable experience.The tuition and supervision was very professional and supportive. Great lunch and after dive drinks on the sunshine deck.Particular thanks to Carl who help me retrieve my photo's, after hours, when my USB stick malfunctioned. Thanks also to the charming young lady who took amazing under water shots of our experience and finally thanks again to Kumi for assisting my disabled wife to snorkel on the reef.

That is wonderful Marc, thank you for the great 5 star review. We just had our 1st birthday so yes our vessel is very very new! We know how important it is to dive and snorkel with the right equipment so we upgrade our gear on a regular basis. We love our crew too, it does make the day so much nicer when everyone is happy! Hopefully we have the chance to see you again on the Great Barrier Reef.

Swimming Money Machine

I hate writing bad reviews, but: The number of 80 (!) Customers on board was much to big. As the Crew didn't properly sort out people in groups by their snorkeling/diving skills the first diving-/ snorkeling session was just chaos. All the divers went into the water at the same time, which didn't make it easy to find your group. Beside that I think they should inform people in advanced that smoking on board is absolutely prohibited so they have the chance to bring substitutes. To be fair: My friend very much enjoyed the 2nd diving session, but all in all a rather disappointing experience.

Hello Hanna, thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. It is the peak season at the moment for Port Douglas with the weather being so lovely at this time of year. This will carry right through to November. We are also seeing lots of whales out there which is a wonderful experience for people. They are usually here until late October. Smoking is prohibited on all vessels for safety reasons and for the comfort of other patrons. We do group people together and advise them of who their guide will be for the dives, we do hope people are able to familiarise themselves with this person so they are aware of who to follow when the in water sessions are ready to begin. Going to 2 locations during the day chosen by the skipper to make the sessions as comfortable for everyone as possible. This also makes things less rushed and more relaxed for people to prepare for each in water session. It is unfortunate that we did not meet your expectations for the day but, it is great to hear your friend had a great time on the 2nd session. We hope you give us another opportunity in the future to make your experience on the Great Barrier Reef a nice one.

Most impressed

A wonderful trip on the Aquaquest with a young friendly professional crew out of Port Douglas. The smaller numbers on the trip added to our experience. Captain Tom drove us skilfully. I am nervous of water but they made my time on the Agincourt Reef memorable. I was looked after by Yula who showed the the wonders of life on the Reef. We even saw a shark. The food was plentiful for us. A long day never to be forgotten. I even purchased the photos taken by Chloe.
