Great experience. I'd recommend bringing more things to do, as the boat is very enclosed, and it's a long trip there and back. I brought nothing but my equipment to snorkel, and wish I knew the situation better.
The staff are really great, and it was a very fun experience. We did ours during the week, and it wasn't 100 full, which was really nice.
Excellent tour with good service and helpful staff morning snack, lunch and afternoon tea great
One of the most expensive day tour in Whitsundays. We would be regretted very much if we did skip this tour because of its ticket cost. This is the top rated of all tour and experience in Australia. We don't want to tell you much and let it be when you go for it. Not 6 stars allow for the review, shame...!
Fab day out
Nb This trip leaves from Port Airlie.
Highly recommend as very friendly staff and very well run. Caters for all ages, swimming abilities and for those wanting to get wet and those wanting to remain dry. The intro to scuba is offered such that if you feel uncomfortable once kitted up and in the practice pool, you get your money back for example.
The ferry is well equipped and the morning and afternoon teas are great, with the lunch buffet excellent.
Once out at Reef World, the swimming area is well marked with lots of floating rest buoys and roped areas for those less capable or confident. There are lots of life guards and a boat in the water at all times. A professional photographer gets around to most swimmers to take a few snaps with you and the reef and fish friends making it hard not to buy a momento at days end at a reasonable price. An underwater camera is almost a must have and gopros are available for rent also.
Theres a good booklet provided as well a great submersible and good observation areas to see fish and the reef without getting wet. Theres fish feeding and a huge friendly local Groper to see. During whale season, your likely to see a whale also.They are preparing for another platform soon which should make it even bigger.
If you want to see the reef etc anothermway, you can even pay for a helicopter ride over the reef, or back to Hamilton Island at days end if you wish.
And if that's not enough, you can even get a massage on the way out or whilst on Reef World.
Strongly recommend this tour as a must do. If possible, pick the day with the best weather sunny, no wind, low tide at lunchtime and dont forget some warm clothes and a towel.
It was great seeing the fish and reef.
only comment, when you get out of water for lunch, had a cold lunch and air conditioner was on. we were freezing. Warm food would have been nice.
Great trip out to Great Barrier Reef. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Have all the snorkeling gear including wet suits that you need. Like the pontoon boat that you use to suit up and get in the water from.
Took helicopter back to Hamilton Island. Great views from air of the reef. Boat return trip was rocky because of winds. So glad I did the helicopter tour home. Highly recommend this trip!
This tour was amazing!
This was an amazing trip! My sister and I have always wanted to see the Great Barrier Reef, and this trip was the perfect way to do it. There is truly nothing else like seeing the reef in person. It is just breathtaking! The crew was absolutely wonderful as well!
Excelent. The only disapoiting thing was the rain.
