What people are saying about Great Barrier Reef - 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.

Amazing experience and friendly, informative crew

It was our first time snorkelling and my girlfriend is not confident swimmer. The crew however made the experience extremely enjoyable and the snorkelling tours at both sites from two different crew members were very informative. We still were able to experience how amazing the reef even though we were only snorkelling. The morning tea, lunch and afternoon cheese were all great too. I would highly recommend booking your trip with Ocean Freedom!

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.

Absolutely fantastic day on the reef. Best captain and crew.

Thanks Captain and marine biologist Dave for your amazing day on the reef. Best hospitality and excellent customer service provided every minute of the day. Snorkel guide very helpful with novices and a wealth of knowledge of the marine life below the plimsal line and a faultless skipper above the plimsal line. Packed in a lot of fun experiences in one day on the water.
