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!

What a great experience! I was so happy to have chosen Passions of Paradise as they are a local company that gives back to the earth! They are conscious about waste and carbon footprints! The staff is amazing, knowledgable and super friendly. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome by learning your name and as you exit the catamaran after the excursion, the entire staff is waiting to shake your hand, I felt like a celebrity! The food was great and the snorkeling was easy and fun! My friend saw a green sea turtle and a black tip shark! I wasn't as lucky but got some great pics and videos on the go pro! I HIGHLY recommend this tour and ESPECIALLY this company, Passions of Paradise!

I cannot say enough good things about our time with this excursion. The catamaran was beautiful and provided a very enjoyable ride out to the reefs. All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, and I definitely got the most of the experience because of them. The food provided for lunch was very good as well. Our dive instructor Simon was an excellent teacher it was my first time with scuba diving and was extremely knowledgeable about the reefs and native wildlife. This was probably the most amazing trip I've ever taken and I'll never forget it, highly HIGHLY recommend this trip for anyone looking to get the most of their GBR experience! Worth every penny!
