Great way to see the Great Barrier Reef. They have experienced staff and they are very friendly.Reviewed by: Marie Anne F, February 2014
Visited in January and I had an amazing time! Chose the snorkel and heli option, and it was well worth the money. The staff were professional, knowledgeable, and safety conscious. The reef sites were well selected - alive with colourful coral and fish everywhere! Helicopter ride was a highlight. Lunch was pretty nice and there was enough to go around. Great way to see the reef.Reviewed by: Kathy L, February 2014
The reef was awesome! The boat staff was great and took good care of everyone. We did the introductory dive package and my stepson loved it so much, he went for a second dive. The second dive/snorkel location was by far the better one. The only downside was the food wasn't that good and they ran out before everyone could get some. If you are going to be on the sundeck, make sure to put on lots and lots of sunscreen!Reviewed by: Jeremiah D, February 2014
The water was very rough on the trip out to the reef, so I was seasick all day. However I did snorkel though I did not see much colorful coral or many colorful fish. The most impressive animal life I saw was two giant clams and a sea cucumber. Because I was sick I did not eat anything on the boat. The entertainment on the way back to shore was good and took my mind off the nausea.Reviewed by: Dennis W, February 2014
Be very leery of the time you book. We booked during typhoon season and decided we didn't want to go and lost a decent amount of money on both our flights and snorkeling bookings. They still have excursions during typhoon season but it will be a complete waste of time from what I heard. You cannot see anything down below.Reviewed by: Scott M, March 2014
