A great big boat with lots of people. Lots of seating, though lots of people saved best seats which was not good. Boat well equipped and comfortable inside and out. When docked at their moored mobile station there were great facilities for snorkelling and scuba, great set up. Managed to post my postcards in post box to get great Barrier... More

Overall, this was a pleasant day out on the great barrier reef. We were all looked after, and they made sure to look after anyone who wasn't a strong swimmer. We went to 3 different sites to make the most of the different marine life. Very knowledgeable guides and we had a lovely experience

Spent the day with quicksilver and it was amazing. From the moment they pick you up everything is professional. Boarding was easy and you were talked through all of the processes that would happen. Set sail and the security demonstration was hilarious but made people watch. The day of reef was brilliant. People on hand everywhere to help and guide... More

We decided to go on the small boat for a day of snorkeling as we aren't divers nor did we want to spend the extra $400 to do a one time diving day. I'm taking one star off as my experience wasn't perfect. We stopped at 4 sites throughout the day and viewed pretty much the same fish at each... More

I listed this as "friends" since there is no category for a father and grown son. We took Quicksilver to the outer reef and the organization from the check-in to the reef was superb. There were lots of different experience level activities to select from. Upon reaching the pontoon we immediately took the first submersible tour (which is free). We... More

We booked a day trip as 2 couples my husband did 2 dives, the rest if us snorkelled. They were very friendly and organised providing full body suits for both divers and snorkelers such a great idea no chance of getting burnt or stung as they had seen a few stingers in the water recently. There was a marine biologist... More
