A truly magical experience. There was a comprehensive, understandable and humorously presented safety briefing on the way out to the reef. You wear a life-jacket so even if you are not confident in the water it's not a problem. Even a non-swimmer would be fine as long as they are not scarred of water. No matter how much you've seen on TV nothing is as good as seeing it for yourself. Simply float with your head in the water and let the fish come to you, they're pretty curious. Plenty of time to swim around and see everything. There's trips on a glass bottom boat and semi-submersible too. Lunch was good and all the crew really nice. Highly recommended and I hope to do it again some time.

Had a great tour. Options of glass bottom boat, submersible submarine and scuba diving was just amazing. But the crowningglory was the helicopter flight over the reef! The view was awesome. Am so glad that we took the flight. All our family and grandchildren enjoyed it thoroughly. Also seeing the marine life and the reef up so close was a very thrilling experience for all of us. Complimentary tea and coffee on the catamaran was a great idea. Though the food at lunch seemed to be running out...was a bit tough to grabsomething before it finished

Loved this tour and going to the Reef, it was the highlight of my trip. The staff were really great with setting us up with our gear and really enjoyed when one of them snorkeled with us and showed us Nemo and the Sea Turtle and gave us information on the area and fish that were there and about saving the ocean. We lucked out on the weather as it had rained for the previous 3 days.

Going to the Great Barrier Reef was a highlight of out Australian trip. The boat that took us to the reef was conveniently located from the peer where out cruise ship as docked, about a fifteen minute walk. The staff was very helpful, and my wife really enjoyed being abler to snorkel with no time constraint. I gag so made use of the glass bottom boat and semi-sub to view the wonderment and beauty of the reef. The lunch was excellent as well.

This crew did their best to make sure it was a good experience no matter your swimming abilities for everyone. My husband and I did some snorkelling and an introductory scuba dive. We ended up being the only two divers with our instructor Vance who gave us an incredible experience. We got some amazing pictures. We also did a glass bottom boat tour of the reef. I don't know how much more you could pack in one day. I tend to have motion sickness and was advised by a local pharmascist to take non-drowsy travel calm. This proved to be a very smart move as there were a lot of people on board who were sick on the way out to the reef. The staff were amazing in helping these individuals. Highly recommend travel calm half hour before going out and before coming back.

Truly an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life. Everything was smooth and on time. We only snorkeled and did a snorkeling tour that was so worth the price. The tour guide was nice and extremely knowledgable. We actually went to Hanauma Bay after the reef because a friend said it was some of the best snorkeling on Hawaii and it didn't even come close to The Great Barrier Reef. Cairns, where we launched from, is a nice little touristy town with a couple things to do to keep you busy if you still have the energy when you get back from swimming.

I read that a number of people had complaints about how crowded the boat was, but in April he boat was maybe, MAYBE, half booked. That left a lot of open water for us to explore.

If I was going to give anyone tips about preparing, the two I would give are
1. If you have ANY motion sickness issues, get something for it or buy the 3 tabs they offer as soon as you get on board. A number of people were extremely ill because the waters near the shore were so choppy. One poor guy went through 6 vomit bags on the way back in.
2. Find out what people who snorkel you can find out online probably do to keep their masks from fogging up. Having to keep stopping to defog your mask will take away from your experience.

A diversity of the crew in nationality and languages spoken was impressive.
Picture souvenirs were a bit pricey! Reasonable cost for lycra/wet suit rental!
A variety of food selection of different nationality tourists was excellent!
