One of the best experiences of my life!!!!

The boat was comfortable, clean and luxury. The staff were the friendliest people who always checked you were ok and offered to take you on guided tour out on the reef to make you feel more at ease. The two reefs we went to were breathtaking with wildlife out of this world. I honestly was so taken aback by what I saw it was truly amazing!! The lunch and food throughout the day was so tasty I even had a second helpings. There was a guided talk from a marine biologist on board which was so interesting. The staff I cannot talk highly enough of, they were so considerate to everyones need and as we disembarked the ship they all came out to personally say goodbye and shake your hand. This shows just how much this Staff care about their passengers and also the Reef itself as they showed it and us the utmost respect. Thank you for one of the most amazing, humbling and out of this world experiences I have ever had. Stay amazing!!!!

Exciting, interesting and a trip of a lifetime

I enjoyed the Great Barrier Reef trip very much indeed, even though sadly the weather could have been better. The staff on board were helpful, professional and genuinely enjoyed their job. The food was outstanding and overall an excellent day out. The train and Skyrail was excellent helped by lovely weather and wonderful views. I stopped at the various stops on the Skyrail and enjoyed a wonderful talk by one of the rangers, all free of charge and the museum which was very informative. I would highly recommend this two day package for value, content and and if they could control the weather it would have been perfect beyond words.

Fantastic experience. This cruise met every expectation. Perfect day!

The crew were wonderful. I especially appreciate the diving instruction and photography. Thankfully Jess found me a properly fitting suit. Morgan ensured the tank was topped off and the weight belt snug. Kristy was an amazing scuba tutor gliding over the reef like manta ray. On my second dive my mask was not fitting well. My face was flooding with salty water. My instructor pulled his mask off and switched with me while out on the reef, a genuine and thoughtful gesture. On the return the crew raised the sail. This an an amazing experience. If you are looking for ecotourism, this is it!

Great Barrier Reef: Premium Catamaran Cruise from Cairns Reviewed by

Snorkelling and Fitzroy Island were awesome

Booking and boarding were great, except for the fact that you can't get seating for a family of 5 because people put their bags on seats or sleep across 4 seats!!! Don't sit on bottom level, everyone gets sick. Fitzroy Island was great for swimming and snorkelling. Saw beautiful coral, fish and swam with turtles. Food is really expensive on island and not that great. Overall an excellent adventure, 3 kids aged 15, 13, 11 and mum and dad loved it. Heaps better snorkelling than Green Island.

Absolutely incredible to see the reef! Friendly, fun staff!

This was a great trip - the staff were thorough but not too serious and the made the day really enjoyable. Great spot to see the reef and good snorkelling equipment. Two great spots to see the reef which is an absolute must see - breathtakingly beautiful and would highly recommend. Lunch was yummy. My only concern was the sea sickness but the staff were really lovely and there’s not much that can be done about this! Such a wondrous, memorable day!
