Our Marine Guides will enthrall you on a reef and marine life discovery on an a highly informative and engaging Adventure Snorkel Tour and Glass Bottom Boat Tour at our two unique Upolu Reef sites - "Wonder Wall" on the Outer Edge Upolu Reef and our "Aquarium" coral garden reef site amongst the beautiful shallow, azure coloured waters of Upolu Cay Reef. These sites are in Marine Park highly protected zones where no fishing is allowed, hence the abundance of fish and marine life. Come and find your favourite Hollywood Nemo character!

Stop At: Upolu Cay, 4805, Australia

Ocean Freedom travels to two Great Barrier Reef sites - "Wonder Wall" on the Outer Edge of Upolu reef (a truly magnificent snorkel and dive site) and Upolu Cay Reef - a beautiful shallow turquoise coral garden site.

Upolu Cay site is truly magnificent - picture a coral garden reef with lots of colourful reef fish darting in and out of the staghorn coral as you snorkel in these crystal clear shallow waters surrounding Upolu Cay. Look out for turtles popping to the surface for a breath of air, stingrays eagerly scouring the bottom for food. Sometimes you can stand thigh deep on the Cay in the middle of the ocean, other days we can land on this glistening white beautiful coral cay - each day a little mystery of nature but always we have the stunning turquoise waters to snorkel in and around this magnificent Great Barrier Reef area.

Make sure you have your camera ready for this truly picturesque site!

We went out on our first trip to the Reef with Ocean Freedom. It was AMAZING!!!! We have 2 teenage children 13 and 16, and we all had the best day. It was so great we almost booked the tour a second time in the same holiday! We will be back to go out again! Thanks to Skipper Mike and the crew.

The crew was very helpful and friendly, the lunch was delicious, and the snorkeling/diving on the reef was beyond compare. They provide all the equipment you need, it’s in great shape. We also got to take a ride in their glass bottomed boat with a very knowledgeable guide to tell us what we were seeing. The boat itself (Ocean Freedom) is comfortable and roomy enough for the amount of people aboard. I highly recommend this trip to snorkelers and divers of all ages and abilities.

An Experience of a lifetime As this craft has a maximum 75 passengers the staff to passenger ratios were fantastic compared to others which carried 200 plus. Another factor to make this trip competative is we believe its the last local company to operate as all the others are large corporate owned companies. My wife and I recently travelled out to the reef and at 76 yrs old were well looked after. We snorkeled, went out on a glass bottomed boat over their designated reef area -fantastic. Food and beverages went on all day and the crew could not do enough to ensure you had a great experience. We are from WA and traveled in November 2022
