This catamaran is gorgeous! Spacious and perfect for seeing the sunset in Port Douglas. We had previously gone with Calypso Bubbles out to the reef and were so impressed by the boat and the staff that we choose to do a sunset sail as well. Again the staff were fantastic making us feel very welcome and ensuring a fun safe... More

We were recommended this tour by our resort and were so happy we went on it! My wife is nervous in the water but Shay really looked after her and we managed to see loads of reef. They catered well for vegetarians with a good spread at lunch. Visibility was moderate as it had been pretty windy in the preceding... More

My partner and I booked the Aquarius for a sunset cruise the first night we arrived in Port Douglas - we loved that it was BYO and brought along a nice bottle of bubbles that made the experience extra special. The next day we re-joined the crew for the full day Low Isles day trip - the snorkelling was fantastic... More

We enjoyed the most amazing trip out to the Low Isles with Acquarius. Saw dolphins, turtles, whales and even sharks! Only blemish was one guest leaving their dirty underwear on the stairs to the top deck but the staff can't be faulted. Would definitely make the trip again

The one-day inner-reef snorkelling trip on Aquarius is a fantastic experience. The day starts with morning coffee, pastries and fresh fruit as you board the boat. There is a very detailed briefing on what the day will entail by the skipper, who also explains the various things you will see during the snorkelling. The gear provided is top notch, as... More

Absolutely brilliant trip - highly recommended - it was "turtle tastic" - my brother was desperate to see the turtles and was not disappointed - crew were brilliant and the food was excellent

This trip had been recommended for us by a friend and we are so glad we followed her recommendation. What an amazing day from start to finish. We were picked up from our hotel (QT resort) and taken to the Marina. We had a few minutes to wait while the crew organised the catamaran and then we were welcomed aboard... More

A friend and I did a day-trip to the inner reef on Aquarius, and it was really terrific. They have a lovely morning tea with muffins, fresh fruit and coffee/tea set up when you board the boat, and it keep getting better throughout the day. The crew were friendly, knowledgeable and very service-minded. The skipper's knowledge of the biology of... More

I have done many snorkelling trips over the years. Aquarius is easily the best I have ever done. The catamaran is superb and crewed by friendly and knowledgeable staff. The snorkelling equipment is great quality. Low Isles is an easy 90 minutes motor sail with plenty of fish and turtles to be seen. The included lunch is also tasty.
