Escaping the winter down south led us to port Douglas and a friends recommendation to spend a day on Aquarius. We were not disappointed! Shae & Aleisha were professional, knowledgable and lots of fun. The boat itself is magnificent with plenty of places to get away from the rest of the travellers, or to make new friends if that's what... More

We thank the crew (andy, shae and jo? if my memory hasn't failed me), for a wonderful day. The boat is just beautiful. Because of number restrictions allowed to the low isles there are only 23 people allowed on this large boat. It's so comfortable with heaps of outdoor places to sit and soak up the sun and the ocean... More

We agonised over which company to visit the Reef with and in the end were delighted with our choice of Aquarius. It is a large catamaran but takes comparatively fewer people than the big companies like Quiksilver, allowing you to spread out across the various areas of the boat. Another draw card was that they said it was adult only.... More

We chartered Aquarius for the day with 11 adults and 5 children including 2 infants. Food, staff, service, snorkeling, glass bottom boat.... Everything was great. Definitely worth every cent. Thank you to the crew for a great day to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday. We wish we could do it again today!

We had a super trip on the Aquarius (62ft Catamaran) to the Lowe Isles. The lady that greeted us had coffee and breakfast ready for us and as we departed she explained the options - snorkelling for those who are keen, glass bottom boat and island tour for those who prefer that. We all opted for snorkelling and were given... More

We had such a great time with Aquarius at Low Isles! Sailing this big and elegant boat has been a pleasure, the skipper definitely knew what he was doing. Once anchored, we did a tour through corals, colorful fishes and ... turtles!! The crew served prawns and fresh vegetable, then we jumped in the ocean again. This time we saw... More

This is great fun and the best way to get out to the Great Barrier Reef. There are snack meals and drinks available. The best bit is arriving in the shallows of a small island at the reef where you can snorkel in safety for hours and see great sea life

Gorgeous, utterly relaxing sunset sail to the Low Isles of the Great Barrier Reef. As the sun slowly set behind the Daintree forest, I captured some amazing photos and made new friends on the catamaran!

After many trips to Port Douglas we can't believe this was our first Sunset Cruise. What a fantastic way to spend the twilight hours, sailing off Port Doulglas on the Coral Sea looking towards Cape Triblulation and the Low Isles. The staff were great, very friendly and attentive as one of my images will show. Never again we we visit... More

Amazing experience. The crew treated me like family. So friendly and knowledgeable. Much nicer boat than a lot of the others I saw at the marina. They even made me a special dairy and gluten free meal. You'll be well taken care of here!!
