This was our first visit to Australia and we were recommended by a friend to do a low Isle snorkel trip. I looked on Trip Advisor (as one does) and found the Aquarius catamaran. On the day of our tour we were picked up from our hotel and taken to the marina. It was absolutely pouring ! We were welcomed... More

While this cruise is one of the more expensive day cruises (in fact, it might be THE most expensive?) it is absolutely worth it! The boat is enormous, incredibly luxurious, and when you only have to share it with a handful of others, it is so, so relaxing! Relaxing on the top day bed was a real highlight of our... More

This trip is expensive; think we paid about $220 but it was worth every single cent!! I can honestly say it was one of the best trips of our 5 week tour of Oz! The vessel is luxurious, smooth and we were so well looked after by the lovely crew of Drew, Pete & Jordan. We had morning coffee and... More

My family of 4 had the best day ever with Captain Drew and his crew, Pete and Jordan. From the instant we met them, we felt right at ease. Although I do not swim and truly had no plan to snorkel when we set sail, Drew assured me that I could snorkel and have a first hand experience of The... More

Highlight of our trip. Don't be daunted by the cost. The catamaran is lovely, modern and spotless. The crew helpful and friendly. We were snorkel virgins, and they were patient and encouraging when we didn't quite master it initially. After that - you can then appreciate the beauty of the reef. Do it!

We prefer small intimate tours as opposed to the cheaper bigger tours. That is why we picked Aquarius and we weren't disappointed. The boat, food, and crew were all fantastic and absolutely worth the extra money. My gf isn't very confident in the water but the crew take this in their stride offering all manner of assistance. As a result... More

Great boat and excellent crew for both the sunset cruise and snorkelling. Could not have asked for more from both Andy and Louise. We were looked after incredibly well from the moment we walked on to the moment we walked off. Very friendly and very experienced. Thanks for a great day! Louise did a great job and the snorkelling tours... More

Visited with my parents who were over from the UK. Didn't fancy a going on a big boat to the Outer Reef as we don't scuba dive. Was one of the best decisions. We did a sunset cruise a few days previously and were immediately won over by the charming and genuinely lovely personalities of the crew, especially Louise. We... More

We had a wonderful day with Captain Drew and his assistant Sally. The journey to the Low Isles took about 45 minutes then we had a talk from Drew about the Great Barrier Reef which was not only informative but interesting and humorous. I did not believe that they would get me at almost 70 to start snorkelling - but... More

We went on our second night in port Douglas and loved every minute of our 2hr trip. The crew were friendly and helpful. Loved being able to byo they provide ice in Eskies to keep your drinks cold. Canapés were included in the price and they made several trips around during our cruise time. It was magical watching the coastline... More
