My family and I headed out to the reef on a rainy wet season day. We hoped for something. We got so much more! From the moment we got in the boat it was amazing. Brett, our skipper, took us out to the reef where Feddy, an amazingly informed marine biologist helped us understand

Awesome staff and the reef was incredible. It was nice to go out on a small boat with fifteen others, instead of a large boat with hundreds of others. Definitely worth the trip up to Cape Tribulation for.

We did two day trips of the Great Barrier Reef, and this one way our favourite. Was a small group which made you feel really comfortable. The captain of the boat and Federico were funny and engaged with all the passengers. The makay reef was next level amazing.
