Great day out

Our family really enjoyed our day on the AquaQuest. The crew couldn't have been any better, food was spot on and we spent plenty of time in the water.

Great day out

A visit to the Great Barrier Reef was on my bucket list so I really wanted to make sure I selected a trip which ticked all the boxes for me. I did quite a bit of research and finally selected this one. I wasn’t disappointed. The boat was quite new so the trip out to the Reef was fantastic in itself. We received an excellent and subsequent briefing before being kitted out with our gear. As someone who wears glasses they were able to provide me with a prescription diving mask without any problem - thank goodness! The staff/ crew were very pleasant and helpful and helped make the experience what it was. Food was good and plentiful. As a solo traveller I had slight concerns beforehand but I needn’t had. Recommended.
