An Excellent Captain & his crew. A great day out with a well laid designed boat & snorkelling platform to see the tropical north reef in it’s stunning variations of coloured fish and corals. The catered lunch was a tropical variety to match. The Helicopter flight allowed an excellent platform to view the reef in it’s best colours. Looking forward to doing more next time. Well done! Cheers
