We'll be in Cairns in July, looking at Great Barrier Reef day trips. I've looked at a lot of other forum posts and lots of reviews, most companies seem very highly rated. I've narrowed it down to Seastar or Reef Daytripper, my wife loves sailing\yachts so is keen for Reef Daytripper, it is slower so doesn't seem to go out as far from Cairns, but it's also cheaper. Is Upolu Reef just as good as any other reef? Or would we see more fish etc at Michaelmas Cay and Hastings Reef? I wear glasses so one bonus of Seastar is they have optical masks, Reef Daytripper don't mention that.
Or are there better options? 2 adults, good swimmers, no interest in diving.
