A very pleasant day spent aboard a well appointed, beautiful boat. The glass bottomed boat tour was excellent - Troy was very knowledgeable and we say turtles and giant clams in addition to the corals. The Low Isles are just beautiful and it was a fantastic experience!
Excellent. The Low Isles has the best coral garden I have seen anywhere in the world and you walk to it direct from the beach. A great ride out on the boat with the sails up.
This was an excellent tour, much better than the Outer Reef tour that I had done a few days before.
It helped that it was a beautiful day and that there weren't many of us on it.
John, the marine biologist, was very helpful with his instruction .
Snorkeling over the reef was absolutely amazing, I couldn't believe the beautiful live
coral I saw as well as many angel and clown fish and others.
The glass bottom boat and the island tour were great.
This tour was the highlight of my visit in Australia.
The entire experience was perfect. Safe comfortable transportation and thorough training was given before entering the water. Good lunch selection and the knowledge of all staff was beyond expectation. Anti-stinger suits were available at an extra cost. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Excellent everything it was advertised to be we really enjoyed it and would book again
