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.

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.

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.

Absolutely Fantastic! (3 Scottish tourists 1 Local)

Every single thing was catered for and the staff were absolutely fantastic! Could not do enough for you. Very attentive! Lots of room on the boat and good educational sessions on the reef. By far the best trip/boat company we have been on in any of the countries visited. Keep up the fantastic work!
