We recently went on the Ocean Freedom trip to Upolu Cay. It was amazing. The staff were very friendly and safety conscious. We saw lots of marine life and went on the glass bottomed boat. There could have been a few less people on board as it was a bit crowded but overall still good compared to some of the... More

On the day that we booked with Ocean Freedom the weather was rainy and a little windy. The crew were really friendly and helpful in assisting us to enjoy the day which was not the most ideal weather by Queenslands standards. I was a little nervous about the prospect of venturing into the water however Graham and Lucas encouraged me... More

Four of us went to the Great Barier Reef from Cairns with Cruise Ocean Freedom. We cannot speak highly enough of the excellent staff on board. Totally professional but very friendly and helpful. They were very encouraging and just treated us all in the same amiable way no matter what age or level of experience. Two of us wanted to... More

My husband and I chose Ocean Free because of the small group and ability to sail. We were not disappointed! The crew, Rob, Paul, and Shawn, were so friendly and helpful. We had 11 people in our group, so the guys sat and talked with everyone. The lunch was good, and the afternoon snack appreciated. We were able to go... More

A fantastic trip, excellent crew, clean spacious boat and lots of fun. The reef sites were beautiful and the equipment used for snorkelling and diving was well kept. Overall a great trip and I would highly recommend to everyone.

Did my first dive with Ocean Freedom and they were amazing! Very comfortable cruise ship, included snorkelling, glass bottom boat, lots of food and when we mentioned our hostel (Flying Monkey) when we booked through Peter Pan, we got to do a dive for a very small fee. The staff was very friendly, attentive and had a very informative safety... More

Our excursion to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef was fantastic overall. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and VERY safety concious. I really liked that the crew would take you out and give you a "tour" of the reef, making sure you knew what you were looking at and making sure you saw things of interest...Nemo being one of them....

I went on the Upulo Cay cruise and it was fantastic! Me (20-year-old student) and my mother went together and it was a great experience for both of us. There were definitely more people my age, but there were also couples in their 30s and a few older people as well. The food was good and the staff were amazing!... More
