What people are saying about Queensland

Sailing back to Cairns under full sail was the highlight of the trip.

Fantastic friendly crew took us out on the boat to near Green Island. For me the snorkelling was disappointing, the reef is in trouble and there were not as many fish around as I remembered. The crew explained the impact of the weather on the reef but without being political, simply explaining recent weather patterns effects. This was not helped by the fact I detest the cold and the water was not as worm as I was expecting, but that was my issue. The journey out and the service provided were excellent. The boat was small and not overcrowded. We had perfect weather to enjoy the journey both ways. Green Island was undergoing renovation so not overly welcoming, but walking through the national park was refreshing and enjoyable. Lunch was excellent. Plenty of food for the people on board. Cold meats and salad, with plenty of prawns and smoked salmon, a range of other meats and a full range of salads. Overall an excellent experience, that makes me concerned for the future of the reef.

Great experience, great crew, lovely food, beautiful catamaran

Fabulous day even though the skies were a little grey to start and it was windy. The safety briefings were good and care was taken to make sure all of us snorkelling were safe. The snorkelling was magical and Whitehaven Beach is stunning. We were lucky in that there were only 15 people (plus crew) on the boat so there was loads of room to move around. Travis and Ben took good care of us and were good humoured, friendly and professional. We had high expectations but they were exceeded!

Great experience snorkeling on Great Barrier Reef

It was a good look at the reef and the fish etc. The reef wasn’t as colourful as I expected. The crew were very friendly and helpful. The staff organised us well for great experience. It was a bit cold at times, especially with breeze blowing and when we got wet from snorkeling. There were a lot of people on the boat. It was tricky at times with lack of space to sit, eat and waiting for others. The sea was rougher than I expected but the large boat handled it well.

Fun Day and Made the Best of Bad Weather

So the weather wasn't the best, but the overall experience was great. The guys helped us make the most of the bad weather and we managed to see and do everything the tour promised. We got great pictures at the Hill inlet lookout, managed to get a long time to chill out on the beach at Whitehaven with a bit of sunshine. Then they found a great snorkeling spot that was protected from the winds. Who cares if it rains a bit, if you're in the water anyway!

Great day well organised, all staff friendly and professional.

Great day. when I booked it they gave me the wrong departing time, but I rang and spoke to someone and they said it was changed, only to get to the terminal and told it wasn't but they had no problem in fixing it there. We had a great day all round. All the staff were so good and helpful. Would definitely go again. Thanks.
