Great Snorkelling

First, a comfortable transfer from Airlie Beach to Hamilton, followed by a beautiful cruise out to the Reef. Staff are wonderful and do everything to make you comfortable and safe. The snorkelling was a fantastic experience, I feel so privileged to have enjoyed the Reef! I highly recommend this tour

AN EXCELLENT DAY OUT WITH THE CREW

What a fantastic day out snorkelling at 2 different locations out on the reef - could not fault this magnificent full day out! A special thank you to all the boat crew who demonstrated their professionalism and excellent hospitality. My wife and I loved it and will be back with our family once again in the not too distant future. WELL DONE!
