An excellent tour by a great team. I highly recommend the optional diving experience.
Had a great time on this cruise, snorkeling was so much fun, diving was awesome, food was good, and the crew were great!!
Most bang for the buck! All of these tours were super and about half the price......loved them all, especially the last that included 3 separate reefs to dive/snorkel. Best deal ever!

The experience was greater than I expected it to be. I am new to diving and the crew were exceptional in helping me understand and experience diving safely. I also enjoyed snorkeling on the reef. The locations we were at were amazing and full of life and color. The food was excellent with a good selection. The crew was personable and memorable. I strongly recommend this to anyone visiting the area who wants lifetime memories and experience the great barrier reef!
THE BEST!!! Since We check in at the counter James make us feel very Welcome, the whole staff Was IMPRESIVE, NICE, AMAZING,HELPFUL, Shakira, Elvis, Matt walk the extra mile, Thanks They do really make the whole excursion worth ,the food excellent, the afternoon entretainment Happy ocation after experienced the Great Barried Reef! , snorckling, scuba diving,immersible boat for the ones that where not able to swim, helicopter ride to see from above the 7th Marvel of the World!!! Thanks I really recomend this activity.
This was a fantastic tour, it was a relaxing cruise out to one of the reefs. I did one dive which was enough for me, there were options to do more at a heavily reduced rate. Snorkling was amazing along with the great tasting BBQ. The semi submergeable boat was an excellent upgrade of 5 Aus dollars, it was a 25 minute tour of the reef in the dry with an expert guide. At the end there was free wine as we made our way back to Cairns.
Both the train trip and the gondola through the tropical forest were great. I also really enjoyed snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef although the weather wasn't the best the reef was still something.A big thanks to the crew of our boat for looking after my other half she had bad sea sickness and couldn't get on the helicopter back quick enough, which was a great ride

Amazing experience. Great day, great staff, great snorkelling and great food.
Snorkeling in open water was much easier than from shore of a nearby island. This activity is definitely recommended.
Crew were amazing and we had a blast! Snorkeling was such an amazing time, highly recommend it!
Diving in the reef was a great experience and seeing the aerial view of the reef thru the helicopter back to Cairns was really just jaw-dropping! Will definitely come back and dive in the Great Barrier Reef!
Doing what: 2-Day Best of Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef
Outstanding trip! The crew is phenomenal. I had never dove before but after a good lesson from the dive instructors had no problem with the first time dive. Surprisingly the food was some of the best I have ever had on a trip booked on Viator. You can't go wrong with this one for a trip to the Great Barrier Reef.
This excursion offered diving and snorkeling at two different reef locations, good food, a friendly staff, and entertainment. The crew were all helpful and pleasant, and it was a great introduction to diving the Great Barrier Reef.
Great crew. Amazing dive sites!
Had a great time snorkelling then taking the chopper down the reef and back to Cairns. A once in a lifetime experience, well maybe will do it again. Great staff, great food and well organized. They cater for everyone and you are not just a long lost number.
Great trip and will definately recommend to others.
Everything- from the friendliness of the staff to the cleanliness of the facilities and equipment to the food provided- was absolutely top notch. My son and I had the best experience and highly recommend DiveDownUnder .
Fantastic experience. The staff are extremely friendly, great with kids and very professional. Despite the rough seas getting out there we had a great time on two reefs both snorkelling and diving. I would highly recommend this tour company.
Great trip! Water was a bit rough going out to the sites, but the crew was great in dealing with those who were sick due to this. Everyone was very friendly and the whole event was super organized. The food for lunch was good and plentful. Boat was large enough to hold everyone comfortably. Dive sites were great. Sub ride was a lot of fun and had great information!
Amazing trip! Throughly recommended. In this one day trip, they take you to two magnific locations, and provide you with everything you need for snorkelling and diving. The crew make you feel very safe, and there is always one member of the crew watching you as you snorkel / dive in the reef. I also recommend the helicopter trip - it is short, but the view is unbelieavable. I did this trip twice, once in September/2013 and another recently, in June 2015, and both were amazing.
Excellent tour to the Great Barrier Reef. They take you to two reef locations, including a beach that appears at low tide. They provide you with everything you need for snorkelling / diving. Highly recommended.
Beyond words. The day was overcast but the reef was clear, warm. I took the guided snorkeling tour and the guide took us to the best spots to see the most amazing part of the reef. Incredible!
Doing what: Best Great Barrier Reef Cruise from Cairns
Frankie is my instructor for this course. He's so kind and outgoing. Lecture class wasn't boring because of him. We done a lot of skills in first two days and enjoy four dives at the reef. Plenty of food on the boat. SUPERB!! DELICIOUS!! and the guy in dreadlock is pretty funny, he keep entertain us until we back to the land. Awesome trip ever. WORTH to do it!! Maybe one day I'll back to Cairns and study Advanced course with them. From: Nitiwat Joe
It was unforgettable!!! The staff was awesome, attentive, and fun! The food was excellent and the entertainment was great!!! I do hope the young female staff who got hurt during the turbulent return is recuperating well. Snorkeling the great barrier reef was an experience we will never forget.
Fantastic day. We also added an introductory dive when we got there which was brilliant. Yes it is pricey but it is worth it. The crew are very knowledgeable and friendly and you feel safe throughout the day. I also went on the submersible boat which was also a great opportunity to get close to the fish and coral.
Down Under Cruise dive and snorkel tours is a great way to spend a day on the Great barrier Reef. They take the boat out to two different locations: one in the morning and another after the buffet lunch they serve on board the boat. Both locations were great and the staff is very friendly and helpful for people new to snorkeling and diving. I met other people who took a different tour boat out the same day that got stuck in a heavy rainstorm but Down Under has more locations to choose from and chooses them according to conditions each day, providing the best possible conditions.
