The original diving vessel!

The Falla reef dive was an amazing & truly wonderful experience due to the wise Captain Doug, the amazing crew and of course, the Falla herself. The courteous, care & attention and humour of Doug & crew made us feel welcome and involved during the trip with my husband & four children throughout the day. Wouldn't hesitate to go again when I next visit Cairns!

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.

Awesome day out on the reef

My sister and I did this trip together, she was visiting from the uk!! We had an amazing time, I'm so glad we did it with the falla as it was a small intimate group, the crew were awesome , lots of great stories from Doug, lots of snacks and a wonderful scrummy lunch. I have been in bigger boats with many more people in the reef but would by far Recomended this one

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!

Best Reef day onboard the Falla!

Doug and his crew were excellent in giving us the best Reef day filled w fun, food and safety! He provided clear snorkel or dive instruction to the group on equipment and what to expect at each of the stops on the Reef. Thx for the great time!
