Owner description: Join our experienced crew for a memorable day exploring the Keppel Islands as only we can show you. Fun for all the family, there are 2 choices with and without wet activities - glass bottom boat, lunch on board, snorkelling, boom netting and a visit to Great Keppel Island. Or why not spend a the night or longer on Great Keppel Island.

As they appear to be to only regular ferry service to Great Keppel Island I guess you only get what you pay for.
We went on the glass bottom boat cruise the fair (concession rate) was $100 each which included the glass bottom boat over the reef and return tickets to the Island.
Best I can say is been there now and don it b ut ws dissapointed.
Dont expect to see the beautiful rich colours of the reef as in the brochure as you wont. At the very best everything is in various sades of a dull green and that's if water has not leaked over the glass at the bottom of the viewing pod/s (for want of a better name) along the centre length of the boat.
The old resort is still there but all fenced off and in a sad state of disrepair, but there are now cabins at the other end of the island not our taste but probably ok for the backpacker or the younger or more adventurous type, food was ok and service a bit hap-hazard.
Was it worth it.......... the beaches are "Beautuful" and, well at least we have been there and seen it.
I was there 40 years ago and to see it now was dissapointing.

Excellent staff, great boat, nice trip out (we just did the transfer to GKI). Bit pricey but a good service for sure.

Picked the coral cruise (only $15 or so more expensive than transfer fee), definitely worth it! Had no problem with overcrowding or anything on the glass bottom boat - there were only 14 of us and we only filled half. There was also morning tea!

The staff were incredible and efficient. Good mix of families, younger and older travellers. No problem with any rowdiness or drunk passengers or anything like that, very pleasant trip. Would come back! :)

A group of us took a day trip over to Great Keppel Island via Freedom Fast cats: very smooth trip, beautiful scenery, and the snorkelling was excellent. Ferry lands on the beach at GKI. Loved the baby goat who tried to hitch a ride back!

Really enjoyed trip out to Great Keppel Island, then the change to the glass bottom boat to see the wonders beneath us. Saw turtles (not sure if it was the same one each time!!), plenty of marine life, and beautiful coral. Morning tea and lunch on board. Crew friendly and informative.
