What a perfect day! I was a little reluctant to go because I had been let down by such excursions in the past, but I am really, really happy I went. First, the ship is amazing and clean (like absolutely, surgery room clean - probably cleanest place I have ever been) - it has everything you could want. The bathroom... More

We did the sunset sail on Aquarius last night and I was not high on expectations, however t was simply magnificent. Thanks to Andy and Alicia for a brilliant evening sail. We loved it and was a highlight of our trip to port Douglas.

I can't fathom any way to improve the Aquarius Sail & Snorkel excursion to the Low Isles. The boat is magnificent, sailing with a small group is just sooooooo much better than going on one of the big boats with dozens/hundreds of other people. On our sail we were 2 of 8 total and the more personal interaction was just... More

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
