Fantastic, safe family experience. Children ranging from 6-12 trialed the snorkeling under supervision. No time for boredom. Fabulous, tasty food with great choices. Staff friendly and knowledgeable of the reef. Well worth a day out! Boat a tad dilapidated in need of some TLC but this didn’t ruin the experience 🤿

Fantastic day and very well organised. Take some sea sick tablets before just in case!! Gorgeous reef and the slide is a must for big and little kids.

The experience was a lovely day out on the reef. Easy cruise out to the reef and a helicopter ride back to Cairns (at additional cost). In my view that chopper ride was fantastic and well worth it. Plenty of time in the water snorkelling if you want it. The buffet is basic plentiful. The only thing that I'd say is that it is sadly obvious that the reef has experienced coral bleaching.

This was a great day trip from Cairns. Everything was very well organised and safety was a major focus. There were safety talks and science talks on the way out. You are taken to a floating pontoon, where all the activities are taken from. We decided to take the submersible, the glass bottom boat and snorkelling, which was all included. You could also pay extra for scuba diving, helicopter ride and sea walking. The staff were all very helpful and always attending to safety. The trip back to Cairns was pretty rough but they had seasick tablets for sale and we never felt unsafe. All in all, a very professional company.
