Marc, is excellent. Unique, educational and inspirational. Thank you so much for the amazing night, Gold Coast is so much more than the beaches and this experience is like no other. Thank you, Thank you, thank you!

Incredible day, great staff and food. Boat is quite large/new, and excellent snorkle equipment! We liked the snorkeling too (diving is not a must in our view, as it is very similar to snorkle there)

Great tour, knowledgeable guide, he made sure everyone on the boat got to see everything and have good views for photos. Great variety of bird life.

Such a wonderful experience snorkelling with turtles and fish and so much coral. The crew were really good. Do yourself a favour and book a trip

It was great, had a lot of fun! Rick the tour guide was great!
