We have done this cruise twice, it is expensive but well worth it.

It does get overcrowded at times but it was fine that did not bother us.

We all had an amazing experience snorkelling what a great spot. Highly recommended.

Thank rleyy

We loved our trip on the Quicksilver to the beautiful outer reef. Luckily in November the boat was only half full so we enjoyed lots of room to look around and didn't have to wait for our turn on the submersible or to go snorkelling. Our boys (7 & 4) thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling and we have great photos to remember our experience. The food was also good quality & variety and plenty of it. The staff was great fun, most were supporting Movember with their moustaches. Thanks for an awesome day!!

Wonderful experience. Everything was great, hotel pick up, boat transfer and all the facilities on the pontoon. The helicopter flight over the reef was unforgettable, just too short. I could have stayed in the air for a lot longer. For the number of people on the pontoon there was no real waiting around except for the changing rooms. The included buffet lunch was also very good.
