What people are saying about Great Barrier Reef - Cairns
Overall, we had a really good day! I'll keep it short and just mention what we liked the best and what the least. The best: The friendly staff equipped us with everything we needed, such as wetsuits, snorkeling equipment, floaties, and they offered guided snorkeling tours for swimmers who were insecure (they could hang on to a life preserver) which was amazing for my parents!!! The worst: We chose this tour because they advertised that they would pick from 24 locations depending on riff conditions... well, the second riff they stopped at was a big wall which you couldn't approach because the tide would suck you onto the wall's top which was too shallow that day... that's the opposite of good conditions, I'd say. Now, we still had a great time, which is why I happily give 5 stars, but I just didn't care for the exaggerated advertisement. To end with something positive, though, the food was delicious and the beer prices super fair and the main reef guide very funny and knowledgable.
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!!!!
My daughter and I had a great day on Passions 3 catamaran, sailing to one of the outer reefs, skippered by Craig and with an amazing, friendly, caring crew - Kirsty, Jesse and Jaryd, to name just 3. This was a very professional outfit - I felt in safe hands at all times. There were 2 opportunities to snorkel/scuba dive on the reef. My daughter spotted 2 Reef sharks and cuttlefish. Others saw a green turtle. There were many different species of fish and lots to see. There were snorkel guides available for those who wanted more information about the fish they were seeing. On the journey home there was a seasion with a marine biologist. This is a great tour - highly recommended!
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!
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!
