Fantastic tour. We loved every minute of it. The crew were very friendly and experienced. Would definitely do it again.
Excellent trip to inner isles. Saw turtles and swam with black tipped sharks which was interesting!
Both Syd Tammy did a great job! Loved the snorkelling at Low Isles the trip there back was fun, despite the somewhat rough weather.
Fab day and well organised! Picked up from hotel which was good as we were outside if Port Douglas just ring them to ask for pick up should do it! Megan, Greg and Steve on board were great and very knowledgable. Snorkelling was great with chance to do more after lunch!
Great trip, weather not great so reef was not as colourful as can be when we were snorkelling, 3 or 4 reef sharks came in on us but were more interested in the small fish on the reef who kept jumping right out of the water trying to get away from the sharks, we were also lucking enough to see quite a few big turtles, great to see. The lunch on the boat was excellent and plentiful for all tastes followed by a tour round the reefs in a glassed bottomed boat especially for those who couldn't swim, this tour is a must do for all.
Amazing snorkelling and a great lunch. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to do it again.
Great day fantastic experience for the whole family. Great hosts. Very excited to see turtles and a lively bunch of black tip reef sharks.
Excellent hosts, very accommodating, caring and helpful. Lunch was fabulous and the snorkelling was amazing. Especially liked the small group - much more intimate.
A very good trip to the low isles. the crew on the boat were very attentative and knowleable. The snorkelling was good fun and every member of the group was catered for. Lunch and snacks were extremely nice Highly recommended trip.
On the day the Skipper and crew were fantastic, very helpful and polite. Loved the day but sadly went all to quickly.

Picked up at hotel, taken to Marina where we sailed out to the Lower Isles on a beautiful boat. Given all the gear for snorkelling plus lots of instruction and were accompanied out onto the reef. Saw coral, loads of fish and turtles then the highlight sharks feeding close to the beach - not when we were snorkelling thankfully! Lovely lunch on boat then sailed home in the sunshine - a perfect day.
This was a very enjoyable cruise.Brett is a very capable skipper, but the two girls, Jackie and Courtney were awesome. This cruise, Friday 08/02 had mostly Chinese who had no English capability, This made things difficult for the girls but they handled situations with dignity and a lot of patience.
This tour was perfect for the beginner snorkellers. The only thing is that it takes 2hrs there and back. It certainly wasn't a rough ride as we went to the inner side of the Great Barrier Reef. The people running the tour were excellent, the food was lovely and we're glad we chose this option.
Was really well planned. Great safety chat and instructions prior to sailing and snorkelling. Was a great experience to get so close to the wildlife at the island. The lunch provided was even better than expected and really topped off a great day
The guided snorkelling off the Low Isles was great as was the guided walk of the island, glass bottom boat tour and snorkelling off the back of the boat. A great lunch was provided and the staff were helpful and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend this cruise.
The tour was fantastic and Alex and Tammy were great. Very knowledgeable and made the day easy, fun and relaxing.
Staff was not as interactive and informative as we would have hoped. However the boat was comfortable and the snorkeling was exactly what we were hoping for. The crew seemed to cut the after lunch snorkeling session short and to spend that extra time driving the scenic route back to port. We would rather have snorkeled longer. The island tour was a waste of time.
The tour was awesome! We saw whales, dolphins, small sharks, turtles and lots of pretty fish! The boat crew were lovely and helpful as I was a little nervous with the snorkeling at first. The actual reef wasn't as pretty as I expected but still a pretty amazing experience.
We enjoyed our cruise and the crew were friendly.We found the cruise a bit cramped for room lucky we got good weather ...everything was very rushed could of had a bit more time on the island and snorkeling
