A Fabulous Way to Discover MI
Oct 2021
A fabulous morning on the water - lots of history, great scenery, secluded beaches, snorkelling and wildlife. We circumnavigated Magnetic Island and were provided with the most delicious and generous morning tea. Do yourself a favour and book this trip.

Fabulous experience
Oct 2021 • Family
Having been there many times, I thought I knew Magnetic Island, but when Steph and Adam took us on the Discovery tour we found beaches and history that was new and previously unknown to us. Having lived on the island for most of their lives they had an abundance of knowledge of Magnetic island including recent and indigenous history, and many beautiful beaches with great snorkelling spots. Thank you for the best day.

Aquascene Experience
Oct 2021
We where supposed to just do the snorkelling tour on the Northern side of the Island but due to tides not being right for snorkelling he decided to circumnavigate the whole Island stopping along the way to see the Ship wreck the Adelaide and brief stop in the mangroves and showed us every beach and bay around the whole Island . Adams information was great and informative and I would highly recommend if you go to Magnetic Island you take a trip on Aquascene. Our trip also included snorkelling to look at Fish and Coral and was definitely a highlight of our stay in the Island.

Best day of our trip
Sep 2021
Fantastic day, did this trip on the first day of our weeks holiday. Adam was very laid back and nothing is a problem. Great way to get to know the island so that you can explore the rest of the time. Adam is very knowledgeable and can also recommend plenty of things to do.
Absolutely brilliant trip

Add this to your Bucket List NOW! Absolutely Brilliant
Sep 2021
We went of the Circumnavigation Explorer Tour and it was a totally amazing day! The amount of knowledge between Adam and Hooky was mind blowing. We learnt so much about the Island and the beautiful Ocean surrounding. You can see how passionate they are and how much they love what they are doing. And absolute credit to Australia and the Hospitality sector. Really no surprise that they are hightly recommended and have won many Awards. Should definetly be on everyone's Bucket List when going to Magnetic Island. Lunch was so very delicious and to top it all off, Hooky kindly bought it over to us while we lazed on the beach. If you are planning your next holiday, you must include a tour with Aquascene as it is an experience you really don't want to miss!

Fantastic Day out with your family or friends
Oct 2021
I've already started recommending this tour and showing off the spectacular views, bays and coves on social media. My family and I had a great day full of laughter and also we learned some things about Magnetic Island that we were not aware of. Thank you.

A fabulous day!!
Sep 2021 • Family
The Aquascene tour was absolutely amazing! It is such a beautiful day out to be enjoyed by all. There was a great range of activities available to do such as paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, snorkelling and relaxing on the beach. There is heaps of equipment supplied to snorkel and spend time in the water. There is a large floating device available that is well suited to kids or those who just wanted to relax on the waters surface. Morning tea was provided which was lovely. The boat is very clean and comfortable with a toilet on board.

Adam was so accommodating and provided us with really interesting information about Magnetic Island and it’s history. We really enjoyed seeing the shipwreck. It was great seeing the wildlife and more secluded areas of the island, not accessible by a vehicle or foot. A huge barracuda caught by another guest was a real highlight of the day. Steph was very friendly and informative and made booking the tour an absolute breeze. Thank you guys!!

A must do if you’re visiting Magnetic Island!!!!

A great transparent experience!
Sep 2021 • Friends
The experience was great! The team were very kind, provided a nice morning team and the day was great. Adam gave us an update by text day prior to let us know the weather wouldn’t allow for a great snorkeling experience on the day and offered to cancel if we were no longer interested which made me impressed right from the get go. It shows they actually care about our experience and giving the best the island has to offer without just doing it for money. You can tell they love what they do everyday and I don’t blame them. 100% would do again.

Sep 2021 • Family
Such a great tour! We took our four children aged between 6 and 11 and they all loved it. Adam has such great knowledge of the history of Magnetic Island and where the best places are. The snorkelling with the fish and on the reef at Arthur Bay was fantastic!
