This was the highlight of all the activities I persued in Port Douglas. Having never snorkeled before I found the the crew were extremely helpful. The onboard Marine Biologist helped us identify different species of coral and marine life. The snorkeling off the Low Isles was amazing. The lunch on board was excellent. The crew very welcoming and friendly (even remembering my name!) Can't wait to go back!

A very good excursion with plenty of time given to enjoy all it had to offer. Excellent staff on board and an enjoyable educational aspect on the island. Great food provided too. Highly recommended.

The Great Barrier Reef is definitely a must see !!!!!
Beautiful trip out to the reef on a comfortable boat. Water was crystal clear with gorgeous colorful fish in the water. Had a great complimentary lunch aboard with ample time to snorkel or spend time on the beach.
Don't forget camera for fotos of the reef ...something you will never forget !
Highly recommend this tour !!!

This was a fantastic trip which we would thoroughly recommend. The staff were relaxed and knowledgable and even made a small detour so we could see a whale and her calf. We snorkelled with turtles and the wonders of the reef and saw lemon sharks and dolphins too. The only downside was that we paid $90 more through viator than we would have if we'd booked direct and had no response from the company when this was queried.

A great way to spend the day. Picked up at hotel and driven to the boat. Once on board the staff very friendly attentative and helpful. A marine biologist gave a talk on the area and the local wildlife. Safety run through was give for those snorkelling. The access to the water was fabulous for all ages and fitness levels and and the water was perfect. Take or hire a underwater camera. It is well worth it.

Even though the sea was choppy, this was an amazing trip. I had a dream come true, which was to snorkel on the Barrier Reef. What more could you ask for?

The cruise and snorkelling were incredible - the best experience I have ever had. All of the staff were friendly and approachable and they made sure everyone was well looked after.

I would go back and do the cruise again tomorrow - fantastic!!!

Poorish weather, but it didn't matter, wonderful food, great staff, good gear to borrow, and the most picture postcard perfect island in the world, and we saw some turtles! Enjoyed by all, even the non-swimmers in the group.

This place is just like the pictures you see on postcards with bright sand and colorful fish and reefs. The snorkeling is great, saw a few turtles and thousands of fish, and it's nice to be able to swim back to the beach to relax for a while before getting back in the water. The Catamaran is fantastic and you should sit outside for the cruise out and back if the weather is good.

Great trip. Accessing the reef from the beach is a great idea, especially for those that are not that confident in the water.

This particular trip was cancelled but we went on the Agincourt cruise instea: really enjoyed the snorkelling, even though it was hard work! The water was very clear and there were lots of fish to see.

very nice tour with great experience snorkeling. However just a little remark: it is very difficult to snorkel from the beach and I prefer the trip to the pontoon as it was on the first trip.

Was great, staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing I would change would be how many small boats were used to transport us to the island. There were only 2 and it took a long time for everyone to get from the sail boat to the island. Apart from that it was great many thanks

Really enjoyed the snorkelling and felt that the day was very well run. Would have liked a little more information on our guided snorkel which didn't really seem to happen. Otherwise very good.

This was a really good trip, especially if you're wanting to see some turtles! The one downside is that it only involves the one location, so if you're wanting to see a lot of the reef, it might be better to book an outer reef trip.

Pity about the weather, as it was rather windy. The diving and glass-bottom boat were great, and the lunch was superb. All the crew on the boat were very very friendly and helpful. I would definitely do this again.

3 star rating: Worth doing

Tour was very organized, crew on the boat very friendly and helpful. Low Isles were beautiful and ride out and back was quite senic. However there were too many people on the boat and you had to wait in line to get off the boat, get on the glass bottom boat,get your lunch, and get back on the boat. Next time I would pick a tour with fewer people!
