What people are saying about Cairns

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.

Best Great Barrier Reef experience! Do this!

We researched several tours for the Great Barrier Reef and were so glad we found this one. There were only 11 of us on the tour and 3 crew members. We all got to know each other and had a really personalized experience. Cassie, Chris and Pasqual (the crew) were awesome. Always checking with us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The snorkeling was the best. Our ‘stinger suits’ gave us peace of mind, although they probably weren’t needed. The food was really good too. Ale sure you book with this tour for the time of your life.

Absolutely amazing experience with the nicest crew ever.

I lack confidence in the water but Cassy, Chris and Pascal made the snorkelling experience absolutely wonderful. They were so helpful and patient. They were also exceptionally nice and funny and knowledgeable. They were what made this activity one of the best things I have done in my life. They even provided a delicious lunch and morning and afternoon teas. All my family loved it. Thankyou so much.

Fantastic experience. Breathtaking views of the forest.

Kuranda and the shops were interesting and the bird park is a place for beautiful photos. The Kuranda scenic rail was an experience not to be missed. Interesting information and comments coming from the public address system. It was a bit difficult finding the correct bus from the Freshwater station to Cairns.

Highly recommended for any travelers looking to experience the reef!

Great tour! A special shout out to Yatta for going above and beyond to make it a truly exceptional experience during which we got incredible pictures/video of a giant clam, a shark, a barracuda and huge sea turtles! Definitely a good value since wetsuits and the glass bottom boat tour are both included.
