This was the best experience of our whole two week trip to Australia. The sights of reef & fish were amazing! I highly recommend this cruise. The one downer was poor communication with the crew. I thought I was going down for a free trial dive since I wasn't certified. I was disappointed to find out after the fact it cost me over 60. The dive was great, but I wish I had known that I was going to be charged up-front. I would definitely recommend this though.
two hours cruise trip with fantastic reef experience, completed by an intro dive
Good value for the price, very organized.
Fantastic dive boat, facilities and crew! First dive excellent, but second dive very cloudy due to rain. Loved this day!
The crew were awesome - a really personalised experience. Prepare the sea sickness tablets though, too many people throwing up over board. However, the day itself was absolutely remarkable. The reefs were great! The Heli tour was not working on the day though, but other than that it was the only disappointment.
The trip was fantastic.
Professional staff and go to try the introductory dive with a certificate for memory.
Brilliant day out on a fantastic boat with really friendly and helpful staff. Faultless.
I was excited to scuba dive for the first time and although nervous to take the first plung, the staff was very professional, easy going and helpful in helping to overcome any fears and enjoy the dive. The sea creatures were beautiful, the boat and number of people, a recommended smaller number, and the staff made the entire trip or the more enjoyable. This tour is highly recommended.
When we went on this trip the sea was pretty rough and many people got sea sick on the way out to the reef, even some of the crew. So if you suffer from sea sickness I would recommend taking suitable tablets along. Having said that, the actual trip was very well organised and lunch was good with a good variety and plenty of it. The crew were all knowledgeable and helpful and they provided good advice and all relevant equipment. We visited two different parts of the reef with a mix of fish and coral. All in all, if the sea had been calm, it would have been excellent.
Great crew. It was a little murky due to time of tide, but we had a super time.
As a university student studying geology it was almost like a dream come true. I've studied and read about the Reef in past semesters and although we got to see fossil samples in lecture, getting to see them first hand in their natural environments was amazing! It is definitely a must see for everyone.
The snorkleing was amazing, huge fish all around and the reefs span on as far as the eye can see. They even feed some fish from the boat to draw large ones closer. On that note, the boat ride is about 2 hours out and is not for the faint of stomach. I got so sea sick, I ended up leaving on the helicopter, an option they offer once you're out there.
