I thought the trip was excellent! The crew was very knowledgeable and made the experience fun and informative. I WOULD Definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
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.
Done this trip before and it is amazing. Could not do it this time because of weather conditions
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.
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.
