We did the Low Isles cruise on Aquarius. It was fantastic, the crew was superb, especially with one guest who was quite nervous but their attentiveness made her day. I'd recommend this cruise to anyone. And the snorkelling was great too. .Larry

My boyfriend and I sailed with Aquarius on January 21. We called the day before to ensure the weather conditions were suitable and had great service over the phone. That was just the beginning. On arrival, we were boarded on time, all 11 of us!!! The small restricted numbers was a definite plus on this tour. The boat was in... More

Could be happier with my day out on the Aquarius. Great team on the boat and plenty of space to move around (or lounge around to tan) due to the restricted numbers. They give you some morning snacks before you set off and then a fantastic lunch including some delicious meats, salads and prawns. Amazing! The snorkelling was fantastic and... More

We had a great day out on the boat and snorkeling. As others have mentioned numbers are limited so you actually have room to roam on the boat ride and don't feel cramped during the snorkeling. The boat captain is not only knowledgeable about the water but knows where to take the boat to see a lot of amazing things.... More

Aquarius is a catamaran that is dedicated to snorkeling on the inner reef, and limits the number of people so you get plenty of attention from the two staff. Includes a well prepared buffet lunch. We've been snorkeling a number of times, and I thought the instruction on safe snorkeling was the best I've ever had. We saw sea turtles,... More

I had the most amazing snorkeling trip to the inner GBR with Drew aboard Aquarius. The yacht is a beautiful vessel with plenty of food, equipment and space to move around. Drew is like a marine biologist - he knows everything! Ask him about the sealife, the tides, the birds, the animals, he can tell you everything you want to... More

Step aboard this beautiful boat and immediately you know you are in for a treat. I snorkeled with sharks, sting rays, sea turtles, and fish as big as me! Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon teas were top notch with fresh seafood, cheese platters, and more food than one can possibly consume. The boat itself felt like a luxury indulgence. It was... More

The catamaran, crew and experience was fantastic. Couldn't ask for a better evening. The BYO made it a really affordable and enjoyable trip!

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
