This was a reasonably priced trip with pick up and drop off included. Customer service is great and got to see plenty of reef and fish. One of the cleanest viewing windows I have seen on a glass bottom boat. Highly recommend

Awesome experience, amazing to see the coral and sea life just under the boat, great for families and groups and couples! I will never forget this experience over the Great Barrier reef.

East tour with courtesy bus.
The rainy day didn’t matter as we were under a roof . Nice tour for children as they enjoyed looking for fish . Enough information almost saw a turtle !
Lots of different reef formations and different sea levels .

Kristen May 2021

Guides were lovely and very accommodating to make the experience as great as they could.
We had a 9 year old and 14 year old and they both loved the experience.

Geof W February 2021

We thoroughly enjoyed the explanations of what we were seeing. Our “ship captain” was very knowledgeable and obliging in answering any questions asked of her. Very pleasant experience. The weather was ideal. We saw a couple of shy mantras with one quickly surfacing and fleeing our presence. The 90 steps we were told we would have to descend was altered so we arrived below that point. Great day. Our bus driver was equally obliging. Also met the owner Luke who was very friendly and obliging.

For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
