Crew seemed overworked & over it V expensive, didnt feel v luxurious/special, not enough snorkel time, food just adequate Altogether disappointing - marine biologist or at least an informative dvd to watch prior to low isles would have helped as would a complimentary alcoholic drink on way back to help you think it had been a great day !

Lovely sunset cruise conducted on a very well appointed boat that had plenty of room to move about. The crew were very friendly and helpful and the Snacks and BYO option make the cruise good value.

We went on the Aquarius yacht to snorkel at Low Isles. We were with twenty one other guests and three female crew. Crew were very professional and friendly! We got to snorkel several times and there was a glass bottomed boat to ferry us to the island and view the coral. All gear us provided including wetsuits if you wanted... More

OMG, this trip was amazing! Luxury catamaran with only 4 other couples. Service was first class, delicious food, amazing sailing out to the Low Isles and the snorkelling was good! Was definitely worth the $$ and highly recommend to anyone considering getting out to the inner reef.

Having snorkelled in pristine South Pacific regions such as the Solomons, this trip was mediocre as far as coral, tropical fish viewing was concerned. It was, however, great to swim with a turtle or two. Quite pricey but great to have only a small number of passengers. A little bit misleading when they advertise morning tea. They actually mean "breakfast"... More

We witnessed a beautiful sunset and the crew were lovely. Great that you can BYO your booze. The canapés are also a lovely touch. We took jackets in case we needed them, which we did on the journey back into the marina. Lovely way to spend a couple of hours, we would recommend this tour. Thank you Scott and Cheryl... More

The conditions under which we set sail were atrocious; cold, windy and rough. We were so cold on the top deck that we asked to be allowed to go down below for the rest of the trip plus you were never going to see a sunset in those conditions. We had turned up on time fully expecting the sailing to... More

Keeping in mind we had perfect weather and a large group of people which had the trip all to ourselves - I'd still recommend this to anyone who is in Port Douglas. The diving is some of the best I've seen (previously dived in Hawaii, Thailand, Malaysia, Whitsunday Islands) and the 3 sites we visited were great. Stop 1 -... More
