Team was super helpful getting us set up and comfortable in our gear ! Feed us with heaps of knowledge of the reef and all the fish and species living at each site ! Facilities were awesome and the food was great ! Dave took great photos of the both of us in and out of the water and all up an amazing first time seeing the Great Barrier Reef !!!

 

Tino B July 2019

It was an amazing day, Gordon taught us how to dive and guided us in a very professional way. Of course the Great Barrier Reef is amazing by itself and the guides showed us the most beautiful parts.

 

Wayne M July 2019

The cruise and facilities were excellent. Staff were professional and very helpful. Coral wasn't as colorful as when I visited in the 1990's but marine life was plentiful!

 

Kathy April 2017

This was an incredible excursion! Spotless boat, incredible fun and friendly staff, smaller size, great reef stops and perfect location since we were staying in Port Douglas. The included single dive was perfect for first time divers. Great instruction.

We expected the reef trip would be great, so we booked two tours on two successive days. This, our first, included an intro scuba dive. I was initially concerned, my wife and I are around 60, and while I am very comfortable in the water I wasn't sure how she'd do. She did fine, and my children in their mid-20's also did fine. Our leader was very friendly, guided us through the intro dive well, was patient with small problems she'd treated our goggles with anti-fog and asked us to keep the masks on while on the ship, but when the ship photographer came by he asked us to remove them, and when she saw this she sighed but re-treated all of our masks, and made it a very pleasant experience. The ship was very stable and fast. Food was ample and there was plenty for vegetarians. The reef was great and we had a glorious time both days. Crew was very helpful and friendly all around.

 

James C March 2017

Great experience! The staff took very good care of everyone! Would take another trip with this organization. Take care if you take any medication, I wasn't allowed to dive on the reef with scuba gear because of a medication I take. Should have been informed so I could have a doctor's slip.

 

Edwan November 2016

Superbly organized, professionally run and an unbelievable experience. Crew spent a load of personal time helping my wife overcome concerns over snorkelling so we could have a great experience...thank you again! Not much can top the Reef itself....superb all round!

 

Nathan E October 2016

Trip was great! Did two certified dives. Boat crew was very organized and professional.

 

roberto f August 2016

everything excellent

 

Kathy E March 2016

I was so happy to be able to take this tour as it was the best of three trips to the Great Barrier Reef in 3 days. The seas were calm and the fish were everywhere. Although we had booked directly with Quicksilver for our tour in Cairns, we were pleasantly surprised that the operator was Quicksilver again. Thank you for making it very easy to book a tour!

 

Nancy T February 2016

Once in a lifetime experience. Excellent staff, very organized. Enjoyed the different activities available - snorkeling, underwater submarine tour, observatory, diving and even the helicopter rides. Lunch buffet was also delicious. Highly recommended!

 

John D February 2016

Great tour. Staff was very dedicated to my enjoyment. The boat was great for both comfort on the ride out to the reef, and ease of getting on and off while at the reef. Simply an amazing sight to behold. Don't get to this area without seeing the reef. Surprisingly, even the lunch on the boat was very good.

 

R Scott P December 2015

The reef was beautiful...outstanding coral and visibility. The boat crew does an excellent job at taking people with a range of abilities...from those who can barely swim to experienced divers...and making sure they have a great day. A beautiful, modern boat and snorkel/dive equipment was in good shape.

 

Elizabeth W September 2015

First time at the Reef and first time snorkeling for both of us. It was a fantastic experience all around. The three different sites were all terrific opportunities to see many kinds of coral and dozens of kinds of fish. The strong optical masks made it possible for us to see details of everythingsomething we were a bit concerned with, since we both have significant near sightedness. The crew were professional, efficient, and generally friendly. We appreciated the fact that there was more than one vegetarian option at the lunch buffet and that no one blinked at a same-sex couple. In fact we were treated like any other couple for things like photos and getting our gear. It made everything that much more enjoyable.

 

Christie M August 2015

Great experience, got to visit three different sites. The staff was very friendly and informative.

 

Michael Fukuda October 2014

Crew is amazing. the selected places are great. the boat is clean, everything organized and safety. I truly recommend.

 

John K July 2014

Excellent Tour to Outer Great Barrier Reef, staff on boat to the reef were friendly and attentive, included food and drinks on board was fantastic.
I highly recommend this tour even if your not a great swimmer as the staff fit you up for all the snorkelling gear on the trip to the reef and you get a good briefing before each snorkel. I would recommend taking their advice on using a floatation vest or a spaghetti noodle as they help with floatation and enhances the snorkel experience. This tour went to three different reefs and they were all spectacular in their own way, the coral and fish were amazing, even got to swim with a sea turtle!

 

Gabriela H May 2014

An absolute must if you're in the area! Had a fantastic day on the Reef. Signed up for an introductory dive and loved it so much that I ended up diving again.

Was picked up at my hotel at Port Douglas and taken to meet the boat. It's about a 90 minute ride out to the first stop - and beautiful the whole way. Each place we stopped for diving/snorkeling was fantastic and there was plenty to see. We even saw a shark!! Staff were VERY nice, and the boat itself was great as well.

Make sure to pack sunscreen, some water, and a towel!

 

Dean C November 2013

Absolutely brilliant. Can't fault any of this trip. The crew were fantastic, the boat (Silversonic) was excellent, the food on board was great and the diving and snorkelling were unbelievable.
