I have recently moved to Australia and was going to be in the Mackay area for work so I decided to extend my stay and drive to Airlie Beach to go on this cruise/trip. I went on my own and had such a fun time! I met so many nice people, the Cruise Whitsundays staff was amazing - super friendly and helpful. I opted to do the guided snorkeling and it was great, though it seemed to go very quickly. I will be doing this trip again, but I will add the scuba dive next time! Highly recommend!
Too many people on the boat...280 max...and it was beyond full, us 5 didn't have seats. The food was awful, cold...and I found hairs everywhere... definitely not ours. 2 of us almost threw up because of it. The pontoon where the boat docks = very gross...food everywhere and hair of course. I'm gagging writing this because I remember the feeling of food under my bbare feet because the floors were so gross on the Pontoon. $200 pp for an overcrowded trip to a dead part of the Reef. Honestly saw only a few types of fish. Fun swim, but the coral was dead there...not much life. The best part wasn't apart of the trip = the whales in the open water was great. Unfortunately they were very far away.
Everything is to be lived in this tour!!! The trip to the Great Reef Barrier, the discovery of the floating Harbour there, and snorkeling or scuba diving! You can buy a picture of you patting a huge fish, quite adopted by the guide underwater. Then, you get an amazing lunch all you can eat, with just anything to eat! During the trip, you can get free coffee or tea, along with cakes, in the morning, and in the afternoon, on the way back, a little goûter. Great memory!
The day our group of four took this tour, the boat was absolutely full. The majority of the tour is on the boat to/from the water platform at the Reef. With so many of us, it was difficult to see much of the reef--unless one was scuba diving.
This trip is a must do. The staff were helpful and friendly and we had a great experience snorkelling and enjoying the fish life and enjoyed snorkelling with a turtle and a giant friendly groper fish. . Sadly, the reef we visited is looking very bleached and sad, but I think that is just due to the impact of global warming. It is ten years since I last visited the reef and the decline is evident.
