This was a 5-star trip anyway, but the fact that we left our underwater camera onboard and didn't realize until we got back to the states.......and the swift boat company found it and had it shipped back to us was incredible!
Staff were very helpful and respectful, had a very bumpy ride, but everyone was a great help. Dive instructors are great, they really love their job, and want you to have a great experience. Seeing a sea turtle was the high light of my trip!!!!!
Very well organized, the staff friendly knowledgeable of the reef. Definitely got your money's worth. The reefs were absolutely beautiful. The amount of food you got was good too. You got a morning snack, lunch and then an afternoon snack. Very memorable day thank you guys!
Amazing. The staff are professional, yet friendly and approachable. I had never dived before and panicked a little at my first attempt but they were patient with me and helped me get over my initial fears. There may seem like there are a lot of people on the boat however this helps with the atmosphere and the number of people actually diving (and therefore require a little more attention/assistance) is a very manageable size. The food on on offer (breakfast and lunch) is plentiful and overall very good value for money. Cannot recommend this enough.
The crew was so helpful and this was bar far my best day in Cairns.
Great Diving experience. Dives were beautiful. Staff puts safety first and was great all the way around. They were very friendly and helpful.. The lunch we had was nicely prepared and was tasty especially after diving. Vessel was very clean. Great experience all the way around.
Excellent tour - the staff are friendly and professional, a really 1st class service!
Something you have to see. Simply amazing. Great staff.
The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We had a clean boat and decent food.
Was brilliant, not too many people so had personal service! Crew were excellent and ready to serve your every need! The fish were amazing too! Well worth the money.
I enjoyed this more than the Quicksilver Outer Reef Cruise as there were only about 30 people and we visited 3 different sites. A huge variety of coral and fish made for a spectacular day of snorkeling. Plenty of turtles, small squid, starfish and of course Nemo!
The small diving groups allowed for individual attention. We had knowledgeable dive masters. Great reefs! We loved getting three dives in one day.
I did 2 snorkeling trips while in Cairns. I liked the one a took with Cairns Premier Reef and Island Tours on the Ocean Freedom better because the ship was smaller and the food was better. BUT, this was still a great trip. We stopped at 3 different places and I saw sea turtles and tons of fish and coral.
The trip was fun it was a little rough with the sea sickness but the staff was very kind to all those who were not feeling well. It was nice that we went to three different locations. We were able to see some amazing things and I would definitely go again.
The day we went was very stormy, we didn't see anything under the water and was only told, after we got to the first dive sight, that we could have rescheduled. A lot of people got seasick including my husband. I would like to return and try it again but would probably book once I got there according to weather forecasts instead of in advance.
