Had a great time snorkeling and diving with young kids. The crew of Pascal, Paul and Ellie were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We got to try our hands on setting the sails and steering the boat. Took us out to near Green Island with private mooring site. It was quite an experience to dive with reef sharks! A great sailing...

We had a great time on Ocean Freedom today. All the crew members were too amazing.. They really took care of everyone on board - for food, for giving advice, for snorkeling and everything else! I am not a swimmer and was quite hesitant to go for a dive. However, Dave really made me comfortable and I was able to... More

We loved sailing with Ocean Free. They tell you right from the start they want this to be the best day of your life and it is certainly on my top days. You are catered to for the day and the staff are relaxed and comfortable. We swam with reef sharks, Giant Trevally's (GTs), parrot fish, butterfly fish, nemo fish... More

Absolutely great day out. The crew are fantastic, very helpful, good craic - know how to make you have a good time! The spots are great too, we got some amazing photos. I was a little bit daunted as it was my first dive but couldn't have wished for a more comfortable experience. I would also like to add that,... More

I joined three cruise tours in my four-day tour. This is the worst as the cruise is so smelly because the floor was so wet that you won't want to step on it with your bear feet. But you have to as the crew members require you to take off your shoes and put them in the locker room. Everyone... More

Everyone in the crew were so incredibly nice and friendly. They really care about you getting the best out of this day. I got nervous when we got in the water, and my instructor was so understanding and thoughtful, and just made me feel safe. Bottom line, the only thing I would change is Staying under the water until the... More

Where do I start? I boarded the Ocean Freedom cruise with my family, from the get go the staff were smiley, helpful and extremely friendly. Tea, coffee, fruit and Danish pastries were served while people arrived and the tea and coffee facilities were available all day. One of the lovely staff gave a safety briefing about the boat during our... More

It was a fun day, snorkelling was perfect, we had a big crew taking care of each one of us, food was abundant and very good, you wouldn´t even have to buy more. Upolu cay was beautiful, must see the view from the glass bottom boat tour. Bring good sun protection and have a water proof camera.

Had a great day on the reef with Ocean Freedom. I went with my 12 year old son and the crew did an awesome job taking him around an making sure he saw everything. I don't think you can go wrong with the location as the Great Barrier Reef is amazing - the big difference here is the people that... More
