We had a wonderful experience on Wednesday the 18th, we based our choice on reading previous reviews, we were not disappointed. Beautiful day to visit the reef, Simon, Russel, Sota and the rest of the crew including the chef made us all feel welcome, explained everything to us, bent over backwards to get what you wanted. We only did the snorkeling, but had 75 mins at our first stop, and 60 mins at the next, great experience. We felt the 2nd stop had better coral, but both locations were filled with various fish, even saw 2 turtles, and 1 reef shark. Great photos by Sota. Cannot comment on the suba diving, but it all look very professionally managed. Tasty food provided by the chef. Nice fruit , coffee and tea as we boarded. Lovely chicken and vegan nachos for lunch with multiple salads & homemade bread. After lunch we had nice dark chocolate fudge with cherries, once we started back to Cairns the bar was open to buy alcoholic drinks. Totally recommend the experience A+ :) thanks..
The staff were amazing and friendly. They came over to sit and chat when they were able to. They were very safety orientated and funny. My grandma and I did the snorkelling and they were very accomodating - my grandma is not the best swimmer and they stayed with her and gave her floaties and towed her around on the life ring. We also enjoyed the food - cooked on board on the way out. It was a lot more than I expected and delicious. And you were able to go back for as much as you wanted to. Kirsty also led a very informative reef info session that had heaps of info but not so much that you were overloaded. Would totally go again if given the chance.
The staff were so friendly and laid back. Their knowledge of the area and the marine life was kn point. Safety was a priority, constantly checking eveyone was onboard after each dive. Would absolutely recommend and would absolutely go again.
Amazing experience friendly staff. Only thing is to make it more user friendly when booking to include scuba diving experience as well and stipulate clearly it’s not included unless you upgrade.
Simply fabulous! Such friendly and attentive staff, and an awesome marine talk from Russell - humorous, informative and genuine! The second snorkel spot was breathtaking!
