Perfect trip to the Great Barrier Reef

This tour was absolutely awesome with a great crew looking after us. My partner and I opted to do the introductory scuba dive and it was such an amazing experience. Where better to try scuba diving than the Great Barrier Reef? Our instructor Jess was superb and we felt very safe under the water with her supervision. Thanks so much! The boat was very relaxing with plenty of places to sit and the lunch was very good. Highly recommend. Couldn't have wished for a better time spent at the reef 😊
Exceptional service and great snorkeling

The staff of the Passions of Paradise treated us with such good care. From the moment we sailed off, through the time in the water and the even the lunch was first class experience. We went with teens on our trip and these guys made everyone feel special. Great attention to service and safety in the water.

I booked this excursions over 2 months ago and when we boarded the catamaran to go out on for the day we had to fill out paperwork. My daughter takes Vyvanse and noted it on the paperwork and we were told that she would need a doctors release for her to do the introductory dive. I spoke to the man in charge and his comment, "This happens all the time - sorry but she can't do the dive". This was no excuse and made it very clear there is a disconnect between the Passions of Paradise, Viator anf it's clients. In the end it's all about selling the excursion and really don't care about the client. I paid extra for this and had we been told at any point before we left on our trip it would have been no problem to get the doctors release. But when you are in Australia and the doctor is in Texas and it is Sunday night in Texas so we couldn't even email and get a release. We couldn't do the dive and she had to sit there and watch all the other people get ready for their dive, then afterwards the dive masters made a big deal over presenting a certificate indicating they had "Dove the Great Barrier Reef". Very insensitive operation. And I might add that we sat at a table of 8 people and the dive master went over the paperwork in front of everyone and drilled my daughter what kind of medicine she took and why she had to taking it in front of everyone and then say oh sorry you can't dive. Very humiliating for my daugher. Wanting to get a refund from the company but have not heard anything yet. Again all about selling the excursions. Thy Passions of Paradise people said they would be reaching out to Viator immediately and get back to us. Again nothing from anyone!!!!!
Wonderful experience!

So glad we booked with them. Check in was easy and quick, no long lines like some of the bargain tours. I would guess about 80+ passengers and plenty of space to move around and be comfortable. Equipment was good, food was delicious and the crew exceptional! We had really great weather and the snorkeling sites where wonderful. The crew really tried to give everyone a great experience. They are one of the last locally owned operations, buy local, book with passions of paradise!

The boat was comfortable and the food delicious. I also participated in the Discover Scuba which was a cool feature to have on the boat, definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I saw lots of cool wildlife and felt well taken care of by the crew and safe at all times. Thanks for the experience!

Absolutely amazing experience!! Very friendly staff, nice catamaran, good for first timers because they assign instructors to lead those who are not very good with swimming

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! That sums up this trip! I have a son who is allergic to nuts, so as soon as I stepped on board the boat, I asked to speak to the chef to make him aware of our issue. I did not want to be miles away from a hospital in case the worst should occur. The chef had planned to put nuts in a salad I think and as soon as I mentioned that my son had a nut allergy, he went straight back to the kitchen to pack up the nuts with a note on them not to be used due to an allergy. He then came back and we talked a bit more about other pre-packaged items that would be served that might contain nuts. I SUPER appreciated the attention to detail from not only the chef but from all the crew members!
We seriously loved this opportunity...

We seriously loved this opportunity to take in the Great Barrier Reef and snorkel at two sites for a total of three hours. My wife was first in, last out at each of the snorkel sites. I was able to do the glass bottom boat for the second site and loved it along with the guided explanations of the reef. Along with the rainforest trip the Great Barrier Reef is a must see activity in Cairns.
Super excursion!!!! I highly...

Super excursion!!!! I highly recommend this trip with the Passions of Paradise Crew. They were fantastic, friendly, courteous, helpful and went above and beyond to make our trip successful. We saw amazing reef vies when snorkeling. Our guide would stop and tell us what we were seeing. We saw shark, clams, puffer fish, parrot fish, and clown fish yes, Nemo to name a few. They even fed us snacks and a delicious lunch. It was one of the best experiences of our lives!!!! Thank you Passions Crew!
