Our day exceeded expectation - even having read the rave reviews previously submitted - Andy, Kelsey and Shay were wonderful hosts on a beautiful vessel. We were blessed with a sunny calm sea on the way out to low isle which of course helped. As novice snorkellers we were gently encouraged in such a way that we were fully able... More

This was my first time snorkelling and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff were really patient with me when I first got in the water and took us on a great tour of the reef. That is without including the boat. It was amazing, Admittedly there was only 3 of us plus the staff but it was just brilliant. The... More

We booked a Low Island day trip on the Aquarius. It was my Husband's birthday and we wanted to do something special. It was a bit windy, but that made the conditions excellent to put up the sails of the Aquarius and we sailed all the way to the Island. We arrived there and were transported to the island via...

Beautiful boat, good food, small group, attentive and helpful crew, good equipment and perfect weather made this the best snorkelling tour we've ever done. Had a great day in the Low Isles with Aquarius. Definitely the highlight of our stay in Port Douglas.

We had such a great experience on the Calypso Snorkel tour that we immediately booked the Aquarius tour of the Lower Isles and are so glad we did! The catamaran that sails you out is so comfy and luxurious and takes only 23 guests. The snacks and lunch were delicious (and plentiful) starting with fresh fruit, muffins and coffee when... More

The beautiful boat and outstanding crew made this a fantastic sunset sail. The boat was big enough to house all the people (40ish) without feeling at all crowded. The crew were extremely attentive and helpful, taking pictures and topping up glasses. The cruise was also BYO grog, which was good (they do provide glasses). It was a good first day... More

We did both the sunset sail and snorkelling with Aquarius (on different days). Both experiences were fantastic and were an absolute highlight of our trip to Port Douglas. The food was delicious, staff very friendly and knowledgable, fantastic boat, not crowded on board and so relaxing. The sunset sailing was the perfect way to end our first day. The snorkelling...

A great day at the Low Isles with Aquarius. The crew were knowledgable and fantastic guides. Reef sharks, bat fish, Nemo and bird watching. Fantastic lunch. All around a great day!

We loved our sunset sail - it was only a short 2 hour cruise - but absolutely beautiful - would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Port Douglas - would have to say it was definitely my favourite part of Port Douglas

We did the sunset cruise. Drew (skipper) and Louise (hostess) were brilliant. We thought we might follow the coastline but wind conditions alowed us to go straight out across the Coral sea and we ended up halfway to the outer reef before turning back. The finger food was really good and just kept coming. This is a BYO cruise so... More
