What people are saying about Great Barrier Reef - Cairns
Overall, we had a really good day! I'll keep it short and just mention what we liked the best and what the least. The best: The friendly staff equipped us with everything we needed, such as wetsuits, snorkeling equipment, floaties, and they offered guided snorkeling tours for swimmers who were insecure (they could hang on to a life preserver) which was amazing for my parents!!! The worst: We chose this tour because they advertised that they would pick from 24 locations depending on riff conditions... well, the second riff they stopped at was a big wall which you couldn't approach because the tide would suck you onto the wall's top which was too shallow that day... that's the opposite of good conditions, I'd say. Now, we still had a great time, which is why I happily give 5 stars, but I just didn't care for the exaggerated advertisement. To end with something positive, though, the food was delicious and the beer prices super fair and the main reef guide very funny and knowledgable.
My daughter and I had a great day on Passions 3 catamaran, sailing to one of the outer reefs, skippered by Craig and with an amazing, friendly, caring crew - Kirsty, Jesse and Jaryd, to name just 3. This was a very professional outfit - I felt in safe hands at all times. There were 2 opportunities to snorkel/scuba dive on the reef. My daughter spotted 2 Reef sharks and cuttlefish. Others saw a green turtle. There were many different species of fish and lots to see. There were snorkel guides available for those who wanted more information about the fish they were seeing. On the journey home there was a seasion with a marine biologist. This is a great tour - highly recommended!
Fantastic underwater experience. staff aboard make you feel welcome and ease you into the experience, willing to go the extra mile to ensure you can truly enjoy the reef.
Excellent job and very nice and helpful crew. Snorkeling spots were great! Plenty of time to explore plus eco certified with a good presentation of the great barrier reef.
The Katamaran has two Decks where you can either sit inside or on the sun top outside. The crew was very friendly, helpful and communicative. As there were not so many people on the vessel it was easy to get in contact with other travelers. We were served a light breakfast, a nice lunch and a snack in the afternoon. We had two stops on the reef where snorkeling or diving was possible. This was a memorable trip I enjoyed being part of this great experience. Thank you.
