We had an excellent day on the reef with passions of paradise. The boat was very nice, Comfortable, big and didn't feel crowded. There was plenty of time to dive and snorkel. We never felt rushed. The crew was great and very helpful. I would highly recommend this tour!

Went on the passions of paradise reef trip yesterday (6/2/16) and it was brilliant. All the staff were enthusiastic and informative. We saw some amazing fish whilst snorkelling and also swam alongside a turtle when scuba diving. I will be recommending this trip to anyone who wants to see the great barrier reef.

Spent the day out scuba diving and snorkeling with the Passions Crew and cannot say enough positive things. This tour was entertaining and fun. The food was excellent. 3 vegetarian salads and a delicious curry veggie curry for lunch (with meat options for carnivores of course). The staff were impeccable when dealing with unforeseen circumstances and extremely accommodating. Would definitely... More

Super friendly staff, really loved these guys who ensured the day was a success. All equipment supplied worked well, they take safety seriously and ensure that you can just enjoy the day, while they worry about ensuring all goes perfectly. Loved the boat, while not enough wind to really sail it was a beautiful ride into the reef. Only thing... More

Went quite a few years ago but it was amazing! Food is good, sailing was beautiful and scuba diving was unreal! If you get sea sick be sure to bring some motion sickness meds!

I have been on many tours before and never have I met such a friendly staff. All the crew members were cheerful and made our time on board really entertaining. The dive instructors (Nick and Simon) were extremely knowledgeable. The thing that struck me the most was the crew's passion for the marine life. It was really special to see... More

We had a great day on board the Passions of Paradise. You go to two different locations.. The first location we went scuba diving with the instructor Nick... The coral and marine life was spectacular. We had enough time to go snorkleling after and that did not disappoint either. The second location we went scuba diving with the instructor Matt..... More

There was plenty to see and the areas where very clean. We saw green turtles. stingrays and an array of beautiful fish and corals. All the food on the boat was of... More
