It was the most fantastic day we had from the minute we stept on board of this luxurious sailing yacht to coming back at Port Douglas at 4pm. We started with a warm welcome by Jo and Drew (The crew), Tea and nice perculated coffee, fruit platter and muffins were served. A very relaxing sail to the Low Isles with... More

A great day, relaxing and with good activities. It was a first snorkel experience for my wife and she enjoyed a lot. We were lucky to snorkel for a bout 15 minutes just above 2 turtles. The boat is very stable and provides a relaxing journey out to the low isle - arriving early before the larger tours arrive. Plenty... More

We went out on a Sunday night sunset cruise. The boat was beautiful and clean, with endless places to sit comfortably, relax and enjoy the views. BYO drinks was a bonus, and the canapés were delicious. Would have liked more of it however. The crew were also relaxed which made things very comfortable. We have amazing pictures and memories. Defiantly... More

I cannot recommend this trip enough! The boat is beautiful and luxurious and the skipper and staff extremely friendly and helpful. I was with my mum who was nervous about snorkeling but the crew put her completely at ease and she was so thrilled to have been able to see the fish at the reef. We were able to see... More

If you are not a confident swimmer, this is the tour for you. I cannot swim but after 2 minutes in the water, i didn't want to leave the water. Both Drew and Shay were wonderful and made sure i was comfortable the entire time. Without them, i am unsure whether i would be able to do it at all.... More

This was our favorite snorkeling experience during our stay in Port Douglas. Drew and Shay were great guides and went beyond what a usual crew would . The boat is beautiful and unlike our other experience to the outer reef, no one got sea sick (but more on that when I review the other company) We were lucky to have... More

What an amazing day, floating on the luxurious Aquarius with her friendly, helpful, hardworking team! So grateful we weren't on a snorkeling "cattle truck" with the masses. Food, activities, equipment and overall experience were all top class. Well done team, and thank you!

A day on the Low Isles with Drew and Kelsey (she's an NZer, like me). Turtles, coral, coloured fishies - the whole experience. Bonus #1? Drew can tell you about shells and coral spawning in a way that means you'll never look at a piece of coral the same way again. We got the bonus - bat fish, a reef... More
