Good deal in a structured environment for beginner level snorklers

Semi submersible was good to see many thing that would be hard to see just snorkeling (eg stingray, turtles, large shelves of coral). Food was just plain not appetizing. But you get what you pay for. If you snorkel in the beginner area near the ship, the coral looks bleached and the formations and fish are very deep so it’s harder to appreciate their bright colors. If you can venture out a few meters past the beginner area, the reef is shallower and there are more schools of fish and sea life. Staff were mostly professional and helpful except for one, Maki. I hard difficulty with my swim gear and asked Maki if she had any tips and she snapped at me saying “go find someone else to ask.” Then she turned around and walked away. I don’t expect that type of customer service is tolerated by Quicksilver so I would hope that they have discussions addressing her issues.

Wonderful opportunity to snorkel close to the coral reef

Great experience - terrific environment-skilled and helpful instructors -great food -great catamaran. Smaller groups are better. Tried a large company to snorkel the outer reef. So much deeper therefore less to see when snorkelling. Totally impersonal. Low isles is a great experience with Sailaway who take very good care of you. Thanks To Blake and Augustine we had a terrific introduction to the Great Barrier Reef.

Staff were brilliant throughout the day.

We picked this particular company as there was a substantial amount of time for snorkelling and diving. The staff were brilliant and our youngest child, who is nine years old, had a great guide throughout the day, who pointed out the various fish to her. She was the last snorkelled out of the water for both sessions as she loved it so much.

Best day in Port Douglas on a lux catamaran

Great day, we got lucky on only 6 were booked on the trip - felt like we had bought our own catamaran ! Great snorkeling, food and drinks were great and fresh compared to other trips we’ve had where after a day on a boat you get soggy sandwiches. Staff was very attentionate to our needs. Nothing to fault!

First time snorkelling! Amazing experience.

Was a great day out! My boyfriend and I loved the snorkelling and had a fun time out in the water and just walking along the beach. Crew were excellent as well! Plenty of food and we got a nice serenade from one of the crew members for the journey back to the marina. Would definitely recommend.
