“Best experience to GBR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We went on fantasia to great barrier reef from Hamilton island.

It was a very clean, professional, comfortable cruise with them keeping you informed on what's happening all the time. There were lessons on board, informations, selling of extra tours on board so it was quite busy and made you forget how long the actual trip is!

They do a very good job on educating everyone on the conservation side of the reef, that way everyone knows what they're doing when they get to the pontoon.

The pontoon was just the right size for everyone onboard. Activities included submarines, scuba diving, snorkeling, helicopter ride. Then there was the BBQ lunch. It was actually a delicious meal that they have prepared.

Overall they looked after you very well and it was a great and unforgettable trip. A must try!

“Perfect way to see the Reef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We were the first to spend the night on the pontoon. We slept on the top deck in "swags" (Australian bush sleeping bags) under the stars. The BBQ dinner was amazing and some of us went on the submarine tour of the Great Barrier Reef and also had the opportunity to go snorkeling or diving. The view was incredible with all the colorful fish who got up close and personal. This was by far the most amazing experience I have ever had in my life in the ocean!
