One of the best days ever! First time snorkelling and it was mindblowing. Fantastic staff and beautiful cruise there and back. Would do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you for helping make our 4 year anniversary so special.

Very well organized tour. Very friendly staff capable of helping clients in a variety of languages. Once upon arrival on the pontoon, there are a number of things to do. You can observe and enjoy the Great Barrier Reef without getting wet if that is your choice. I also noted a large number of the staff dedicated to safety issues and watching out for the very young guests. A very nice day and worth the money.

Amazing! I loved seeing the reef and to swim with the fish. The tour itself was well planned. A great boat trip, where everything is explained to you, makes your day easier to plan. Once you arrive at reef world you have a boat with the glass bottom, which was not to special. You couldn't see too much of the reef, but Once you dive in yourself it great. I was by myself but the crew really looked after me. I had so much fun. Your lunch is included. I would really recommend this, if you are around the whitsundays, just make sure you get to see the reef! And this way it was relaxing, and they let you do whatever you want to do. So even everything is planned out, you still feel free and it feels like an adventure. Worth your money!

This trip was absolutely fantastic and loved every minute of it, from the snorkelling to sliding down the waterslide and viewing the coral from the submarine. Totally worth every penny and thanks again for a memorable experience.

Trip was great, and all the staff were really friendly, the boat was clean and comfortable. The only 2 things were it was a bit cold in the boat with the air con so bring a jumper! And would have liked a bit longer at reef world. Overall a great day out tho.

A very fun tour and worth the cost. It was a chance of a lifetime and the colors of the reef were awesome. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the BBQ lunch was also very good. If we get a chance to go back to Australia, we will more than likely buy this tour package again.

Great day out from Hamilton Island. Lunch was excellent. Even though the weather was a bit overcast - the snorkelling was an AMAZING experience (2nd time) and now we REALLY want to go scuba diving. Very friendly crew who gave lots of information and help. We really recommend this experience - it was one of the best days we had with our 5 kids while staying on Hamilton Island.Worth the money!

This completely exceeded my expectations and was an absolutely fabulous day. I had my reservations when booking this since I wasn't sure how I would spend an entire 4 hours at Reefworld, but the time was just right to snorkel, do the semi sub, have a leisurely lunch which was quite good surprisingly and relax a little on the sundeck. Everything was first rate and professionally executed. For snorkeling novices like me who have had bad experiences before, they showed you how to do everything, and the experienced diver will also enjoy this too. The coral and sea life are just stunning, and the water clarity was great and I was able to get some amazing underwater photos. I have been snokeling before in the Bahamas and it does not even compare to the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. This is a must do! We chose to fly back to Hamilton Island via helicopter, and the trip was breathtaking. One of the best travel experiences I have ever had! But if you want to do the helicopter, I would book that package ahead of time as it is more expensive to book the heli right there on the boat and they sell out fast.

Snorkeling on the GBR was AMAZING! There are no words to truly explain how much fun it is...and how beautiful! If you get motion sickness, better stock up on sickness pills...the boat ride turns quite rough in open waters and at least half the boat was sick. Overall, the day was fun! Wish we had more time at Reefworld, it takes awhile to get there, but it is well worth your money!
