Reviewed December 27, 2012

My family would like to thank the crew of Sailaway - Jackie, Alex and Courtney. We had a wonderful time at the Low Isles on 23-Dec-2012. Thanks for taking time and showing us the wonderful way to enjoy the reef through snorkeling. I never thought I could do it but you thanks for your patience and friendliness.

“Sunset cruise...amazing!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We just hopped off the sunset cruise and it was incredible. We highly recommend this company, and the drink on arrival was a very nice touch. The food (which was all included in the $50pp) was beautiful. Definitely a must do in Port Douglas and was very well priced.

“Awesome Trip! Thanks Sailaway”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

After heaps of research to find the best possible trip to suit our family needs we certainly chose the best! Sailaway was the most amazing experience ever. From Alex the salty sea-dog captain to the very professional, friendly and ever helpful crew Tammy and Bianca the day was faultless. Excellent food, service and snorkelling! what can we say - swimming with turtles, reef sharks, stunning reef fish and finding Nemo! The boat was truly beautiful and very well equipped.
If you are reading this wanting the best experience possible of the great barrier reef and great value for money then this is it. Small groups with personalised service! Our kids loved it and have decided it is the "best day ever!" Thank you Sailaway - life is about the experiences and the memories created!
