This is definitely a must do experience in Cairns. There are so many helpful staff members and so well organized. We were able to experience all the extras helicopter ride, guided snorkel tour, bottomless boat experience, and even had 1 who didn't want to get wet and she didn't. And she still got to experience seeing the reef and wildlife in living there!!! The only issue is make sure you buy the motion sickness pills and take them before you leave. Other than that it was the best experience I've ever had!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

This is an amazing day tour that takes in everything that is the Great Barrier Reef. Wonderful hosts full of information and care for their passengers. Lunch was very good and catered for all tastes. The highlight of the activities was undoubtedly the snorkeling. 4 hours on the reef was perfect for all the available activities. Highly recommended

An amazing day, loved the activities and presentations. I'm not a confident swimmer but the crew made me feel safe. After donning a wetsuit because the water was too cold for me , I was able to venture in. Took me a little while to get the nerve to move away from the pontoon but once I did I was off. It was the most amazing experience snorkeling over the reef. So glad I did it. Food was great as well. Brilliant day .

Wow what an awesome day we had. From start to finish was fantastic. The crew were amazing and very helpful as wasn't the smoothest trip. The activities throughout the day was awesome with plenty of time to do everything. The captain was also excellent. Would recommend to anyone

Magnificent color.

I had a small camera I've never used before, but no camera can show the wonderful colors you'll see.



Our view as soon as we put our faces in the water.
