We went out to Low Isles about an hour from Port Douglas. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure everyone could enjoy their day out. We got to snorkel at our pace and swim alongside turtles and other marine life. It was incredibly special. Lunch and afternoon tea were delicious and you could purchase reasonably priced cold drinks on... More

Myself and a group of 4 friends visited Port Douglas over the New Years period late last year. We booked on to the Aquarius Low Isles reef trip the day prior to the planned sail and paid our deposit on the spot, being told that we would need to pay the remaining amount at the conclusion of the trip- nothing...

Beautiful way to spend a few hours. The yacht was lovely service was excellent and knowledge of area 10/10. Had a truly amazing time. Only thing that would have been nice if it was adults only.

The boat itself is unbelievably clean, modern and with only 23 people on board, extremely spacious. The crew were excellent and the canapés were even good! Highly recommend this tour. Also it's BYO with eskys onboard for guests use.

We did the Low Isles cruise on Aquarius. It was fantastic, the crew was superb, especially with one guest who was quite nervous but their attentiveness made her day. I'd recommend this cruise to anyone. And the snorkelling was great too. .Larry

My boyfriend and I sailed with Aquarius on January 21. We called the day before to ensure the weather conditions were suitable and had great service over the phone. That was just the beginning. On arrival, we were boarded on time, all 11 of us!!! The small restricted numbers was a definite plus on this tour. The boat was in... More

Could be happier with my day out on the Aquarius. Great team on the boat and plenty of space to move around (or lounge around to tan) due to the restricted numbers. They give you some morning snacks before you set off and then a fantastic lunch including some delicious meats, salads and prawns. Amazing! The snorkelling was fantastic and... More

We had a great day out on the boat and snorkeling. As others have mentioned numbers are limited so you actually have room to roam on the boat ride and don't feel cramped during the snorkeling. The boat captain is not only knowledgeable about the water but knows where to take the boat to see a lot of amazing things.... More

Aquarius is a catamaran that is dedicated to snorkeling on the inner reef, and limits the number of people so you get plenty of attention from the two staff. Includes a well prepared buffet lunch. We've been snorkeling a number of times, and I thought the instruction on safe snorkeling was the best I've ever had. We saw sea turtles,... More
