The crew makes it. Such a great group of people. The food is also pretty great, the best we've had on such a trip, which is a low-bar, of course. The dive itself is...not as exciting as it once might have been. I expected as much and if you've dived elsewhere, it's hard to get excited about what's down there, which honestly, isn't much. However, it's a great trip, a fun crew, and I recommend this company highly.

This was my first time snorkeling and scuba diving and it was a great experience with this tour. The team were all excellent at their role and this made the scuba diving experience even better and more comforting. They always ensured if you're feeling okay underwater. This is a great tour especially if you're a beginner. The 2 sites we visited were really beautiful. I think the first site was better for snorkeling and the 2nd site was better for diving.

Loved this tour - boat was big, went to 2 different reef spots, food was great and plentiful (fresh fruit/cookies/biscuits in the morning, buffet lunch, chocolate fudge in the afternoon) and the crew was informative and helpful! Our 11 and 13 year old loved it too! Also loved this is a locally owned company.

Passions were absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend this group for reef tours! The staff were all incredible and highly attentive to ensure every individual was safe in the water and on the boat. I was travelling solo and wasn’t confident in the water, but crew member Kelly allowed me to come with her for a guided snorkel tour at both reefs- with her help I had the most amazing experience! The food was delicious and I met some great friends on the trip. Also a shoutout to photographer Sota who took some awesome photos in the reef! When the boat arrived back in Cairns, the crew were lined up outside to thank us and say goodbye to us as we left. Thank you so much for an incredible day guys!
