We sailed on the April 29th Sunset cruise and while they pointed out that they rarely set sail with less than 10 passengers, they were making an exception for our 8. The Capt. and crew were absolutely fantastic and clearly made the cruise as enjoyable as possible. I like the aspect of BYOB but if you run out as we... More

Went on a sunset sail one evening and it was beautiful. Andy and Jo made the trip a highlight and there was enough breeze to keep the sails full! Lovely canopes supplied to complement the champagne we had brought along. A highlight to a lovely holiday spent in Port Douglas.

The staff of the Aquarius were very professional and made the trip safe and fun. The Aquarius was a great way to get to the Low Islands reef.

Great Value for money, beautiful Yacht, great staff (Jo Shay & Andy). Small groups rather than huge numbers on the commercial craft. Snorkel gear all pristine, Low isles amazing. Well worth a day of your stay in FNQ!

Went with a group including children for the 1 1/2 hour twilight cruise from Port Douglas Marina. Great to BYO drinks with quality plastic glasses provided, canapé platters did the rounds whilst heading out into the Coral Sea and enjoying the views. Grandkids loved being in the nets out the front and it was good to see a superb female... More

We wanted to 'do' the Great Barrier Reef but not with a huge group. Booked this the day before (it was early March) and it was the best decision ever. The catamaran took up to 23 people, but with only six of us, it felt like a private charter. The sail out was perfect, the snorkelling both from the beach... More

We had a group of 7 with various levels of comfort in the water. This small boat trip was perfect. Not crowded so very personalized service. Options to snorkel from boat or take glass bottom boat to small island and snorkel from beach. Our group split up and both were great. Lots of food and drink (BYOB) and plenty of... More

Boat was excellent, blessed with great weather. Skipper Alicia and Deckhand Shay were great. Small group made it very relaxing. Low Isles was beautiful and didn't have the crowd.

This sailing boat is amazing! We had a great day on the boat and the crew were extremely friendly. We were looking for a boat ride with small numbers and they delivered. Holds up to 23 on the boat and it never felt crowded. The water, the island, the snorkeling were great, but we enjoyed the sail there the most!

Where do I start, the trip was brilliant from start to finish. The crew were great and gave everyone one on one attention. The boat was beautiful, the food great and the journey to the Low Isles was so relaxing with amazing views. You had the option to snorkel from the boat to the beach or snorkel from the beach...
