We had an absolutely amazing day with the Reef Daytripper crew. The small group size meant we had extra care and support while scuba diving and we were able to make friends with many other tourists. The crew were so professional and knowledgeable about their roles, they were funny and helped to put your mind at ease about diving! The... More

This is going to be a little longer since I tried to reviewed it as detailed as possible. We booked this tour because we wanted to be on a small, familiar boat and not on a 60+ passenger boat and because of their positive tripadvisor reviews. Went out yesterday to the reef and had an amazing day with two phenomenal... More

The things that we saw were amazing! Like clown fish, turtles and moon jellyfish! The crew were really nice and personable and held moon jellyfish for all of us to see! The crew were in the water at all times and showed us cool parts of the reef. The safety was number one and their knowledge and friendliness was outstanding.... More

We had a great day out yesterday, the crew are friendly and helpful right from boarding. The conditions were right to get some sailing in on the way out and back which is exactly why my Dad booked this tour. I was a little skeptical of it not being to the 'outer' reef but the snorkeling was just as good... More

Our whole family had a wonderful day on the reef. My 12-year-old son and I did our first dive (two dives actually) and now want to get our scuba certification. Meanwhile Malena took extra special care of our 9-year-old daughter who got to see turtles and all kinds of fish. Captain Paul makes you feel safe and each member of... More

Excellent trip! Well worth the money and the scuba dive. The 20 person limit is a lot more relaxing than being piled in with 80 other people. Would recommend!

Terrific experience with the Reef Daytripper and its crew! We specifically chose them for the small group experience (20) on their cat even though it meant a slower ride to/from the reef - time to meet others and enjoy the ride. Crew of 4 very friendly and always helpful - while snorkeling my daughter's (age 9) mask kept leaking, so... More
