Beautiful day.

A last minute adjustment to our destination due to brilliant weather and we ended up in two delightful snorkeling spots. Lunch was satisfying and the small size of the fella made the experience thoroughly enjoyable.

Amazing experience!

My friends and I had an amazing experience with Dough and his crew! The Falla boat has a long and interesting history of pearl hunting, which makes the whole experience even better. We spent the whole day on the boat, snacking, talking, admiring the view, snorkelling and diving. I have no doubt we made the right decision to go on a cruise with the Falla cruise. They gave us the best experience on the Great Barrier Reef!
