This was a superb trip. Pick up from the door of the hotel was punctual and a comfortable ride. The staff on Aquarius- Jason and Shay- left no stone unturned to make the day memorable. In addition both had knowledge and expertise so the snorkelling experience was well judged and properly managed, and the walk and talk on the island... More

We looked at many different options to get out to the reef. Large tour boats seemed the safest, cheapest option but we kept looking and asked around town and were steered toward the Aquarius. A few extra bucks but my goodness what an experience! Top of the line, Clean beautiful boat with a warm friendly crew. From the minute you... More

Everyone who visits Port Douglas should do this! It was so relaxing. Plenty of seating options to suit everyone. Not crowded. Friendly crew. Some canapes. BYO. Highly recommend you then round off the evening with waterfront dining at the Tin Shed - as we did! Sunset sail then sunset dining, the perfect combination.

From the moment we were greeted by the friendly Shay to the moment we stepped off the boat , it was one absolutely perfect day! Starting off with fresh muffins, tea & coffee our group of 10 were welcomed as though we were old friends. Shay explained the agenda for the day, basic safety guidelines & where we were headed....

We went on the sunset cruise and loved it. The boat is beautiful and well maintained and the crew very friendly. It's BYO drinks, and they serve a small amount of basic canapés but the atmosphere and setting are gorgeous.

This is a quality tour on a quality boat run by quality people who serve quality food en-route and during a quality trip to the Low Islands. Picked because of low numbers - 14 for us (result) could have been 20 odd max. But the big thing for me was my wife being able to snorkle. In my 30 years... More

Alicia (Skipper)and Shay greeted us with amazing smiles and welcomed us aboard this beautiful catamaran. We where lucky enough to have only 7 aboard today but even if this was at capacity we would of all had enough room. We cruised to Lowe Isles and Shay took us for a guided snorkel and we saw turtles and amazing reef and... More

We picked this operator for a sunset cruise one evening. We found the boat to be modern, clean and very diverse in its options of where you could be on it to enjoy your experience. We didn't like the American sounding female skipper, she seemed to have a very bad attitude/demeanour. But the rest of the staff were excellent and... More

This trip was great and well worth the money. small group with 10 people only , the day was one of the most enjoyable I've ever had on the reef. The low isles was fantastic for snorkeling, we saw turtles and giant clams, and chicks on the island. The crew were all very professional and the catamaran was really nicely... More
