Totally worth it

It was very helpful that’s we were picked up from magnetic island. The boat was small, which meant you got to know other people onboard and weren’t just another passenger number to the crew. This is definitely a great day trip out to the reef. There was plenty of time to be in the water to explore, swim, snorkel, jumping off the boat etc. The reef was incredible, the sun was hot and water was warm!
