I do a reef trip every year and have tried many trips - from large catamarans to the cheaply priced Compass. This has got to be the best ever! We chose it because it was such a reasonable price and it was a small group max. (20 people). It was also the best decision we made for any trip. Mark, John, Belle and Derek treated everyone like family. We were thoroughly informed about the equipment and the reef before arriving. The boat and all equipment were spotlessly and obviously lovingly cared for. Tea and coffee on arrival, a lovely lunch of cold meats and salad and on the return trip wine and plenty of cheese and fresh fruit. But the reef! They are allocated their own spot at Upolo reef and it was the prettiest part of the reef I've ever been to. The water was crystal clear and we were lucky enough to see turtles, sea snakes, sting ray and many tropical fish, some of which I hadn't seen before. The coral was beautiful and colorful and the giant clams have colorful phosphorescent lips! We even saw Nemo and his parents! All of the crew (except one who stays with the boat) get into the water with you and point out things that you might miss on your own. It is very safe and it is the crews aim to ensure you have a special experience. Stupidly I didn't take a camera this trip! The bonus for us is that they do private charters at a very reasonable price and as the whole family are coming to Cairns next year we can book Mark and his crew for a family day out! The trip out is about 2 hours so take a book or just doze on the nets and enjoy the sun. We are really looking forward to taking the kids next year especially the grandchildren! Well done crew! See you next year!
