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!

The crew were incredible. They were friendly, welcoming, informative. Tee leant me her wetsuit as I didn’t bring one and they weren’t onboard just yet. Paul my dive master was incredibly friendly and made the extra effort to write down all the details of our dives and what we saw. Crew communicated the days plans to us at appropriate times, and as needed throughout the day. I observed excellent safety procedures and concern for aol in the water all day. Would definitely recommend this day trip.

This was the best thing we did in our time in Australia. We did 2 certified dives, and while the entire crew was astounding, I have to give a special shout out to Alexa. She led our dive, and she was extremely patient with an anxious diver like myself. She did an excellent job pointing out fish and making the entire dive memorable. We saw reef sharks, turtles, parrot fish, clown fish, rays and many more; hard to list them all. I cannot rave enough about how professional, kind and absolutely wonderful the entire trip and crew were. Definitely a must do while in the region. I would honestly give it more than 5 stars if TripAdvisor would let me.

Our trip aboard Ocean Freedom was amazing! Led by Captain Mike, the crew were so much fun and provided great customer service. They assisted with all equipment, made sure guests were comfortable, offer great info, and overall weee just fantastic. We had a fantastic intro dive experience led by Tom O. and Mike. Tom did a great orientation and made us feel comfortable at every step. The reef at the first stop seemed a bit deeper and larger than the second stop. But the second stop was fun because of a ride on the glass bottom boat that dropped you off to drift through the reef back to the boat. The meals were very good and snacks were delightful as well. Just a great overall experience enhance by the fantastic staff. Highly recommend this tour. We selected this tour based on smaller capacity and two stops with lots of time on the reef.

This was an amazing experience, the boat was clean and the crew were incredibly nice and helpful. To scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef was definitely a bucket list item, and the staff helped it to be one of my favorite experiences I’ve had.

Had a great time, despite some big waves. The crew was amazing and made it a wonderful day. Extra shout outs to Capt. Pasquale, Marie and "T". Thanks you!
