I loved everything about this trip !! The staff were absolutely fabulous and made sure every passenger was safe and happy, Lunch was yummy. Only thing wrong was that there were no showers on the pontoon but other than that, would definitely recommend this day out !! 9 out of 10 stars !!!

A diversity of the crew in nationality and languages spoken was impressive.
Picture souvenirs were a bit pricey! Reasonable cost for lycra/wet suit rental!
A variety of food selection of different nationality tourists was excellent!

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!

All you would expect! Buffet lunch was top class, but it paid to be in the first wave of diners.

This tour was the highlight of our trip! It was truly magical swimming among the fish and seeing the coral.
The ride out was a bit long but worth it.

It was a wonderful experience! We joined the guided snorkelling tour. The guide was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. My daughter is still excited every time she talked about the coral and sea animals she saw that day.

Exactly as described - everything went well and we got to see the barrier reef a couple of different ways. Between the glass bottom and submersible, we thought the glass bottom was more worth our time - but both were great for my husband and son who aren't so crazy about being IN the water. All in all everything is run well, they have all the necessary gear at the ready, including life jackets, fins and snorkel gear for all. My husband was very excited to get underwater with the 'sea-walker' experience he's a non-swimmer, this is an extra-cost activity I was happy to swim and swim in the portion of the coral reef that they had roped us for us as 'safe'. The food: nothing to write home about, but decent and with several options - no need to starve, although I highly suggest bringing along a snack for AFTER your activities or pay for their poor snack selection

A suggestion for the tour folks: help the freaked out people out a bit - explain that they should get a life jackel and a snorkel ONLY until they are used to the water, and THEN maybe add on the fins.

The only negative is that they do everything imaginable to get extra money out of you - from over-priced photography to pushing non-essential gear, and more.

Overall a great day out on the water for us!

The wind was a bit strong when we went out so the boat ride was a bit rough at times but the crew were very efficient and accommodating.

Wish we could have been in Cairnes longer, but we did have one problem with this trip that truly should be noted. My husband and I signed up for the hard hat underwater experience. We were never told ther could be medical conditions of this trip, and when he filled out blood pressure they would not let him go. They said if he had note from his doctor it would have been OK. We would have like to have known in advance.

Again the weather was gorgeous and the ride out to the reef just beautiful. Had a great time. The food was very good and there was plenty. Also, the staff kept the line moving and didn't allow people to cut in.

We did the seawall. As I am short it was somewhat scarey that they pushed me down - I could not touch the walk floor as I was short AND the water came up to my neck and they slammed down the helmet on my head - If you are not short, it would be much better however, I did not realize that the water would be so high in the helmet. It would be great if there was a stool or something for short people to stand on. Also, they bended your head to get the helmet on and then said it was our fault as we bent our necks as that was why there was so much water in the helmet. The helmet weight about 40 lbs and they hoisted it on your head by a pulley. The ad says that your hair doesn't get wet however, that is not 100 percent correct.
