This was our FAVORITE reef out of the 5-6 outer reefs my husband and I visited with other companies. The crew was great, we ended up at the most gorgeous reef. The guy running things even said out of all the reefs he's been to, this was the best one. He was right. It was stunning. Saw a couple reef sharks, huge schools of fish, bright, gorgeous coral, and there was little to no bleaching. The only drawback was the fact the fins they provide are incredibly uncomfortable if you have large feet. Within the first half hour I had a giant blister on the side of my foot that was incredibly painful. They told me to put Vaseline on it, but I had 2 other tours on the reef the following days- this blister caused havoc. All in all it was gorgeous and I'm glad we did this one!
On time and good dive master - pity the other certified divers were not very good. Don't forget to get the boarding pass from the pier centre before going to the boat. Plenty of good food on board.
I can't say enough about this tour except that I wish I had snorkeled two days instead of one! We went to 3 different dive sights and it was magnificent! The coral and the fish were beautiful! We also saw reef sharks. The crew were very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed ourselves immensely!
this is by far the best value for the money. staff was outstanding. Marco was patient and just a pleasure to dive with. I cant thank him enough for ensuring us a great dive experience. We are planning another trip and will book with these guys in a second. don't waste your time looking. just go with these folks. you will be happy you did.
excellent. very organized and a great value. staff was professional and informative. boat was very nice with plenty of room. 3 dives for the price of one or two with others. don't bother looking any further. this is the one to book period.
an awesome day full of water, sun and fishies!!!.....a great experience made all the better by a great crew who are passionate about their jobs and keen to ensure all passengers are ok. A big thanks to whoever was the chef and food providers...great food to replenish hungry stomachs after lots of water fun. A big thanks to Jack who took us on our first ever scuba experience....so keen to do more now. I would highly recommend this tour to whoever is adventurous and wants to spend the day amongst equally adventurous and water keen passengers.

Our guides were fantastic! This was very well organized and informative. They give you wet suites to wear and supply all the dive and snorkel equipment. Lots of food and beverages. We saw so many fish and coral on our 3 reef experiences. Loved it!
This was a 5-star trip anyway, but the fact that we left our underwater camera onboard and didn't realize until we got back to the states.......and the swift boat company found it and had it shipped back to us was incredible!
Staff were very helpful and respectful, had a very bumpy ride, but everyone was a great help. Dive instructors are great, they really love their job, and want you to have a great experience. Seeing a sea turtle was the high light of my trip!!!!!
Very well organized, the staff friendly knowledgeable of the reef. Definitely got your money's worth. The reefs were absolutely beautiful. The amount of food you got was good too. You got a morning snack, lunch and then an afternoon snack. Very memorable day thank you guys!
Amazing. The staff are professional, yet friendly and approachable. I had never dived before and panicked a little at my first attempt but they were patient with me and helped me get over my initial fears. There may seem like there are a lot of people on the boat however this helps with the atmosphere and the number of people actually diving (and therefore require a little more attention/assistance) is a very manageable size. The food on on offer (breakfast and lunch) is plentiful and overall very good value for money. Cannot recommend this enough.
The crew was so helpful and this was bar far my best day in Cairns.
Great Diving experience. Dives were beautiful. Staff puts safety first and was great all the way around. They were very friendly and helpful.. The lunch we had was nicely prepared and was tasty especially after diving. Vessel was very clean. Great experience all the way around.
Excellent tour - the staff are friendly and professional, a really 1st class service!

Was brilliant, not too many people so had personal service! Crew were excellent and ready to serve your every need! The fish were amazing too! Well worth the money.
I enjoyed this more than the Quicksilver Outer Reef Cruise as there were only about 30 people and we visited 3 different sites. A huge variety of coral and fish made for a spectacular day of snorkeling. Plenty of turtles, small squid, starfish and of course Nemo!

The small diving groups allowed for individual attention. We had knowledgeable dive masters. Great reefs! We loved getting three dives in one day.
The team at Great Adventures was awesome. This was a time to never forget. The boat was perfect. The equipment spot on. Few things to remember before you go out: bring a towel, or a few of them. SPF of course. And hire a camera before you get on the boat! I didn't need one personally waterproof camera, so hiring one was perfect. They do that on the boat as well if you forget.
I do wish the food was a bit better, but I get that they can only do so much.
