Great day out in the ocean

Probably the best option available out there for a snorkel at the great barrier reef. Good size sailing boat, good crew, we were lucky also as we were only 12 on board that day. Highlights of the day : great sail to get to the spot, choppy just enough to make it fun, and get us wet! Amazing corals and dreamy lunch spot. What a beauty ! Thanks to the captain and lovely crew for a great day :)

Perfect Day

Great day trip in a small group of 9 people. This trip is worth every cent. Thanks to the crew for giving us an extraordinary experience.

Awesome trip!

Awesome day out! Great staff who were friendly and helpful. Educated on the types of fish and where to go to see them. Had a nice lunch and drinks, nice size group as if it were any bigger I'd feel uncomfortable. Highly recommend doing this trip!

Awful crew

Did sign up for intro diving. Awful crew that will stress you out, esepcially Mikaela. Happy I followed my gut feeling and cancelled the diving last minute and just snorkel cause I later found out their oxygen tanks were leaking. Nice dive-intro from asian guy in crew who was helpful and service minded, other 2 had a teribble attitude that ruined the trip. Slow boat and skipper with attitude.
