marvelous, was a great day, good service, and entertaining crew, was a good trip
Fantastic! The crew was excellent: professional, multi-talented (musical!) and had good sense of humour. The trip was in time, everything well organised, food was good. Nothing to complain.
The trip was very good, even though it was raining and the semi-submarine could not run. The crew took very good care of me as a solo traveller. The snorkeling crew was extremly helpful and tried every way to make a beginner like me enjoy snorkeling.
What fun! Very well organized. The staff was outstanding, taking time and care with people like me who had difficulty snorkeling. My boys had a blast and stayed out most of the available time. The submarine was perfect and I was able to see the sights I missed by not snorkelling.The entertainment on the way back was lots of fun
It was full of fun and excellent value for the cost. I was particularlly impressed with the honesty of the tour operator. I got a 7 year old and booked the diving for the whole family. They called my cell about 10.30pm soon after my booking, explaining kids her age can do snorkeling but not diving, and they've emailed Viator to give me refund. We all had a great time, their instrutors were nice and experienced. My daughter enjoyed the snorkeling so much (seeing lots of fish coral)...and declared she'd come again by herself.
Excellent trip out to the reef,good crew ,good food buffet and good weather
Great day out, weather was good and the crew could not have been nicer or more helpful. Only pity was the sub could not be launched as the water was too choppy but that's the chance you take.
Lots of helpful staff. Good dive locations.
I went on this trip and had SUCH a fun time. I usually do get sea sick but I took the free prevention Ginger tablets they had about half an hour before and I was just fine. This is a great trip and you should all consider going! Also 16 and under counts as a child price so even though I'm 16 I was like half the adult price.
If you have never snorkled before beware it is a strange feeling, however everyone on the trip was helpful and very enthusiastic. The lunch was excellent so I'm told as I was a bit queasy but the reef was fab. If you suffer from sea sickness then be prepared!
The boat out to the reef was pretty bumpy,but once your there and in the water you forget all about that.The crew were just amazing and were there to help you with any problems.Entertainment on the way back is a great distraction on the boat.
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.
