Ocean Free, Ocean Freedom Barrier Reef day trip was amazing. We were on the Freedom boat. We were greeted on board with tea/coffee etc, pastries and fruit, then everyone had an overview of the day and a safety briefing. Safety is something they are very focused on. It was about a 90 min ride to the reef. They sell seasickness pills for 3, i recommend these as the sea can be quite choppy due to the stormy tropical climate. The day is split between two sites, with the opportunity to snorkel/dive at both. There is also a glass bottom boat tour included at the first stop. Time at both stops is plentiful and not at all rushed. A buffet lunch is included with plenty of choice for all tastes. On the ride back to Cairns the crew came round with fruit platters, cheese and biscuit platters and finally with cake platters just before we docked. All the crew lined the dock to shake everyone's hand as we disembarked which was a nice touch. This was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we would definitely recommend Ocean Freedom for others looking for a fun Barrier Reef day.
In our mid-fifties, we were among the oldest on this enjoyable day out. The dive experience was excellent but interestingly, my wife and I were among only 8 certified divers out of 55 people on the excursion. Many did intro dives and many more just snorkeled. Nice lunch, excellent dive masters, nice catamaran. Safety was a big concern of theirs and was well appreciated.
Fantastic day trip. We did two scuba divers and although there was some trepidation, the friendly, enthusiastic staff on board (and there were numerous) were first class and made things easy. Special thanks to Jess who steered us through the dives. Food on offer was excellent. A day we and #39;ll not forget
This was an amazing tour. The crew was very helpful and informed and made everyone feel comfortable. Vanessa, one of the crew was amazing with the kids on board. Our nine year old daughter was afraid of snorkeling but Vanessa used all her charm and experience to make it an amazing experience for our daughter. We could not keep our daughter out of the water by the end. We saw turtles, Nemo and a tiger head shark among many other beautiful fish and corals. The food was great and it kept coming. I wish we could go on the tour again and I would HIGHLY recommend it.
One of the best tours I've taken. The staff were friendly and professional and the food onboard was good. We were lucky to see a whale and a calf on our way to the reef. We were taken to two excellent locations for diving, snorkelling and glass boat tour. The trip was worth the money, I would highly recommend this tour.
GREAT TOUR! We were first time divers and we kind of nervous. They do an excellent job of making you feel very comfortable.
A great trip. Perfect weather, great food, staff exceptionally friendly, calm organised and professional. Wonderful thanks.
Great crew, excellent food and overall good service. Glass bottom boat free of charge on the spot, good spot with lots to see. Was worth the .
The staff were very professional and toured us around the reef which was awesome! The trip was great and took us to two nice locations to snokel. We had plenty of time to snokel which was great. We enjoyed our time.
Amazing!! Highly recommend! Great staff, the snorkelling was fantastic and the diving was brilliant! A must do!
The crew was great
We did not dive but the snorkelling was great
The crew were in the water and looked after swimmers from novice to experienced with enthusiasm
What a great day! I loved how you had various marine biologists to snorkel with us at each location to point out various awesome things in the water. We really enjoyed the whole day and met some really great people on board. Highly recommend!!
There is the reception in a building on the dead-end right side of Spence St.
The staff here is friendly and kindness, and they minded our security very much.
All food was way more delicious than we had expected!
excellent! kudos to ocean free for making the experience truly memorable. super convenient, efficient, safe without compromising fun. thank you very much!
There were 73 people on this tour, so the boat Ocean Freedom was a bit crowded, and it got a little stuffy as they were doing their safety brief. There were seats for everyone, but you just have to be comfortable sitting closely to other people. A pro of this tour is that what you purchase is what you get there are no surprise/extra charges which we got with another tour. The food was great and there was plenty to go around. We really liked the staff, Barnaby was great!
excellent crew, well organized day. definitely recommend folks take sea sickness tablets before starting the trip to avoid getting sick in rough waters. we took them and were fine, but others had trouble. passed fruit and cheese/crackers were a nice treat after a day in the sun.
Crew was first class. Had everything organized between divers and snorklers. The reef was incredible and the food was very good. You could tell that customer service was a high priority for all employees.
It was a wonderful day out, nice crew. Did wish for something hot during lunch, but all in all, was a splendid experience.
