I am a Cairns local and it's not often I go out onto the reef or islands, so when I went with my partner for a birthday present I didn't know what to expect. I had a fantastic day!!! I don’t know why we waited to go back out to the reef after so long it is so much fun.
The crew were very helpful and I noticed a few times they were helping out a lot of people who had trouble with their flippers, or even swimming with the snorkel on. I overheard one woman say to one of the lifeguards that if it wasn’t for him and his encouragement, she would have never got in the water and she was very grateful.
It was a wonderful day, I did get a bit dizzy on the way out (because I am terrible with motion sickness) but I was fine after about half an hour. I will definitely go with Sunlover out to the reef again and I urge locals to do the same as often as they can!!! Take advantage of this wonderful place we live in a support our local businesses.
