I absolutely loved the daytour. I did my introductury dive and snorkeled for hours at two locations at the Great Barrier Reef. They also have a glass bottom boat, in case you want to get reef pics but don't have an action cam. The crew is highly motivated, young, professional and helpful. Everyone had a great time during my trip!... More

My husband and I recently went out on a snorkeling expedition on Ocean Freedom & it was a great day on the water !!! We snorkeled at 2 different sites and the staff got in the water and pointed out different types of fish, coral and marine life. They were attentive to everyone's needs and assisted with all aspects of... More

the day trip is more suited to first time divers and snorkelling. Did two dives with them, they use the same dive site for both the dives, however after the first dive when asked when the second dive would be I was told I was in a different group and would be called, waited around for about an hour and...

the staff on the boat were amazingly committed to making sure everyone had the best day, I couldn't have asked for a better trip around the reef, one on one instructor time for divers like me who had never done it before, I was terrified, everyone on board was so friendly and kind, willing to help you with anything!

My friends and I went out with ocean freedom and had a wonderful time. We were a little hesitant when we realized how many people were on the boat but we ended up not even noticing it as each member of the cre helped us out at some point during the trip. My friends were really nervous and the crew... More

Not being experienced in the water I was a little nervous heading out, but the Ocean Freedom team were great in catering to divers of all levels. We cruised out away from the other operators so we were able to have a better diving experience. It was some of the most breath taking scenery below the water. My wife and... More

Because of the fantastic review from trip adviser we look for Ocean Free when we got to Cairns. They had 2 options the 1st on a bigger boat that took 80 people and the 2nd was a sailing boat that went snorkeling just off Green Island followed by an hour or so on Green Island. We went with this boat... More

Had a fantastic day on Ocean Free. Great snorkeling and Phillippe was brilliant. He snorkeled with us and told us lots about the coral and fish. Pascal and Phillippe (the crew) looked after us so well all day. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Plenty of food - breakfast, great spread for lunch, cheese and wine and cakes as... More
