Top crew at a good price

The crew were lovely and learning the history of the reef and the boat â›” made it a even more enjoyable experience, the boat itself has such a amazing story, but I will not spoil it. The captain has such a beautiful passion for what he does 😊 all in all a amazing experience

Great time

We were a group of 6 Brazilians looking for a great time in Cairns and Captain Doug made us feel very welcomed. He was always happy to help and to change plans accordingly with the weather and guests requirements. Hospitality and friendly customer service. Congrats and success to you and your crew Doug

Absolutely amazing

We loved everithing about it. The sail was nice and relaxing, they crew spoiled us with a lot of delicious food. I'm not an expert swimmer and they made it easy for me to enjoy it. As soon as we had the first deep we saw a sea turtle under us, this is not something money can buy. Everithing was just perfect.

Trip cancelled by Captain and waiting for refund.

Trip cancelled by Captain one day in advance and waiting for refund. It’s a fair score based on phone conversation.
