Wavelength certainly provides the best exclusively snorkeling tour of the Great Barrier Reef. I loved the small size of the group. I felt it allowed for better viewings of the sea life due to the fact that the fish were less likely to be scared off by massive numbers of people in the water at any given time. The addition...

Really good day, very professional operation from pick up to drop off. Good addition of on board marine biologist that was extremely approachable and able to answer all questions with a smile. I learnt a great deal. Lunch was good and plentiful, boat was comfortable and group size was good. Would recommend to others.

After thorough reviews we finally decided on Wavelength to explore the Great Barrier Reef. My wife was pregnant but they assured us she could still snorkel. She snorkelled the first stop and was a write off for the rest of the day. I must commend the crew they went above and beyond to make my wife comfortable and thank them... More

What attracted us to Wavelength was the fact that they catered for a maximum of 30 people and only did snorkeling, not diving. As we went slightly out of season there were only 19 of us on the boat and right from the start everyone was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The crew of John, Tim and Emma were brilliant,... More

What a lively, fantastic experience. The numbers were small, around 25 people, which meant by the end we were all very comfortable with each other. The crew were fantastic, endlessly knowledgeable. They're happy to answer any questions you might have about the reef, or otherwise. As for the actual snorkeling experience, it was quite magical, I get the feeling science... More

Friendly staff, small group for more fun!! As it was our first snorkelling experience, they took the time to explain so we could make the most of it!

From the second we stepped on the boat, the staff was extremely accommodating and interested in providing us with a great trip to the reef. Being a smaller boat, we were able to chat with the friendly captain and marine biologist to learn more about the reef. It was great to see how they genuinely care about reef, and how... More

We booked a snorkeling trip with wavelength because of the small group and were lucky that we only had 14 people on board. the crew was very nice and took good care of us. they really told a lot about marine reef live and helped with snorkeling equipment. we totally enjoyed the trip.

We chose Wavelength after a fair bit of research. We were not disappointed. The day trip to the outer reef was fantastic. Everything from the boat, the food and most importantly the crew were amazing. Have no hesitation in recommending them.
