Very funny and good people!

The lunch was so good! A negative point: a lot of movement during the trip, take into account..

Very well organized

We were upgraded to ReefQuest since the boat wasn't full. The crew members were nice and helpful. They answered all questions and gave us clear information and instructions about the trip and the activities. There was free tea, coffee and water available all day, snacks served on the way to the reef and on the way back and buffet lunch. The boat looked modern and clean, even the toilets. There's also free sunscreen SPF 50+. If you are prone to get seasick I strongly recommend you bring some pills, chewing gum or whatever works for you. It's a long trip (1.5h to the reef) and you don't want your day ruined because of that. Great experience overall.

Excellent trip with professional crew

Outstanding performance of every staff on the boat. They were professional, organised and looked after so much for everyone. Helpful and smile always. 2 stunning reef locations, we even saw sea turtle in the second spot. No worries about if you are not a good swimmer, they provide guides accompanying you during snorkelling. This company is highly recommended!!

Great crew - too industrial

As a used snorkeller, I was expecting a lot about this trip - no easy way to get to the outer reef in a day without a tour - and it was, really different from the coast and other places I've been around. The crew was great, they try to not leave anyone on a side, diver or snorkeller, and we understand that divers could need more implication, they try to remember the name of each one of us on the boat, which is really valuable. The critic I'd make would be more about the all "industrial organization" above: was expecting 2 real different locations and not the 2 sides of the same reef (norman reef), where I suspect we've been mostly because of the transfer of people on their bigger boat... If it's not your first diving experience I won't recommend this option: the organization seems great but you can access all the spots snorkelling (and enjoy more time).

From Reef Trip - Outer Great Barrier Reef Day Trip - SeaQuest (Excludes $20pp Levy)

Hello Romgre, thank you for taking the time to post a review for us. Yes the Great Barrier Reef is wondrous place unlike anything else. We do travel to the Outer Barrier Reef and this takes 90mins on our fast catamaran. Our crew are super wonderful and try to make everyone enjoy their time on the Great Barrier Reef no matter which activity you choose to do. The 2 locations we go to are chosen by the skipper to make the day comfortable and enjoyable. We try not to travel too far when going to the 2nd location as this takes away from in water activities. Reef sites can be extremely varied even if they are close to each other. Different marine life lives at different depths and places around the whole reef. A lot of the marine life also travel great distances so you may catch something visiting that site at that time. We do daily transfers to our liveaboard vessel OceanQuest, we try to make this time as efficient as possible and greatly appreciate the patience of the our non-transferring guests. We also have a vessel that is dedicated for day trip passengers. Our vessel ReefQuest. We do hope you have the opportunity to travel with us again. We also have a vessel that departs from Port Douglas. AquaQuest visits the lower Ribbon Reefs, which is a different experience again.
