Gorgeous old boat, lovely day out

I'm so glad I found this day trip on an old pearler working boat. Crew were great, boat gorgeous, and such great teachers for newby snorkel and divers! Highly recommend. Tip - take warm clothes for when wind gets up.

Ignore the other reef trips - Pick this one

We had a great day on the "Falla". The crew is really kind and caring and are all about making your experience the best they can. We had some bad weather/bad visibility in the water the day we went out. But the ship and their crew really made our experience fantastic and unforgettable. Thank you so much for a great. Would recommend this to anyone thinking about going out to the reef!

Great day on the reef with the family!

We booked our large family of six out for the day on the Falla. The sailing boat was fun and as we watched the huge modern boats zip past with literally hundreds of people I wasn’t at all jealous! The first stop at what Doug termed the ‘aquarium’ was fabulous and I could have stayed for hours! Saw sharks, turtles and fish galore. Second stop had more coral types. Saw a barracuda and more turtles and starfish. Kids had a great day. Lunch was simple but delicious. For the price you can’t go wrong!

Disappointing

Didn't even go to the great Barrier Reef, we just snorkel off Fitzroy island. Lovely crew, very nice people and a cool old boat but I would not recommend this trip to friends due to the poor quality snorkeling sites and the fact that we didn't actually visit a reef!
