Great crew, really attentive. Various snacks are served during the trip and we had a real feast for lunch on board. Beautiful views and a good spot near Green Island to do snorkeling through corals and fish. The sailing boat experience on the ocean is amazing!

Glynn A May 2021

The day is full of unforgettable highlights- snorkelling with experienced divers, barge to Green Island, sailing back to Cairns, great food and happy welcoming crew. Not to be missed.

Bronwyn May 2021

Great personalised service. Scuba dive a highlight definitely worth the money. Food absolutely impressive seafood and plenty of it. Staff polite and full of positivity.
Sail boat made experience on the reef a memory forever.

Lisa J April 2021

An Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish! The crew were simply fantastic and made the day a very memorable one. Our captain was great. He was informative and made the entire trip fun. Our snorkel experience was incredible we saw stingrays and a turtle and loads of fish and we had a great tour of the reef. The breakfast and lunch was lovely and fresh, followed up with cheese and crackers with wine to enjoy our trip back to the mainland. I 100% recommend this tour and will definitely book again, if I return to Cairns!

Helen M March 2020

The weather was perfect, being out on the water was relieving from the humidity on land.

There was only 13 or so people which was awesome.

They reversed the tour which suited us better!

On Green Island, we went to the croc place (aka crocodile prison for the not-so nice crocs) and were in time to be the only 2 there for the feeding. The beach and waters were stunning and amazing with so little people there.

Lunch did the job.

Snorkelling was amazing!!! Saw a shark, a stingray, different coloured coral, colourful fishes and no jellyfish thankfully !

After everyone was back on board, we headed back but stopped for a while to enjoy a glass of wine, fruit and cake. It was so peaceful.

Thanks to Jess, Matt and Scott for a great experience.

Biggest regret is not asking them more questions about the reef, their experiences etc but I learned from it and annoyed all my other guides in Australia

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