We had a great day for it which made the experience even better than expected. Snorkelled for 3 hours among the curious and friendly marine life on the Reef. Great value. Don't miss out if you get the opportunity.

A great way to fill in a day. A pleasant trip out to the Quicksilver pontoon. Very well organised. Snorkeling gear available with help from attendants if needed. Also a ride in the viewing submarine around the reef was terrific. Morning tea, a buffet lunch and afternoon tea is available. A great day

Took the family here as a bucket list tick. The weather was exceptional and visibility at its best. Staff on the boat were great as well as in bookings! I couldn't fault them. Unfortunately, the reef lacked the colours I expected to see except for the odd patches of blues, greens and yellows. It was quite bleached so if we're... More

One of my favourite experiences ever!!! The day was completely faultless, do the helicopter trip on the outer reef tour as it is absolutely mind-blowing.

This was a fantastic experience, so well run, with plenty of staff who were all extremely helpful. A member of our family was taken ill and the care they took to make sure that she was ok and could still enjoy the day was very impressive. I did a snorkelling session with one of the marine biologists which was fantastic.... More

We decided on taking this cruise on the last day of our 7 day holiday to Cairns as a final hoorah. We are so glad we did as it was an awesome experience. Despite some wind the catamaran cruise was very smooth. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent. We had wondered, prior to the cruise, if we... More

The weather was picture perfect and ferry ride pleasant enough, aside from the constant touting for extra activities. The island looked great as we arrived from the jetty, but once on the island, it was disappointing to start the day with a long, long line up for the ladies toilets. Surely this happens every day, would assume it would be... More

An amazing experience with great food, awesome tours including helicopter, snorkling, scuba diving and submarine which I particapated inall of them and found them amazing. I bought some amaing phots of me and my family from the cruise and the location of the pontoon is incredible. We saw a shark, a sea turtle, hundreds of colourful fish and a Wrasse... More

Four of us travelled out to the reef on the Quicksilver boat. Seas were very rough and many passengers were seasick. Many passengers ignored advice from staff about sea sickness medication. Staff were very efficient trying to help and comfort I'll passengers. The ocean walk was a great experience but an expensive option. The semi submersible vessel was great. The... More

We travelled out to Low Isles today with our 2 young children. The whole day was very well planned and run, all staff members were pleasant and knowledgeable (and great with children). You are given s brief run down when you get on the boat, about the reef by a marine biologist. The Reef was great, with lots of coral,... More
