We had a great day out on Passions, we were comfortable and the staff were great. An enjoyable meal on board but the highlight was the two snorkelling trips. My friend wasn't confident in the water but they had guides with tubes so she could hold the tube, even better I tagged along beside & got a guided tour.

My husband and I were excited to see the coral on the Great Barrier Reef and we chose this trip. We weren't disappointed. We had to pay $15 each after booking our ticket which was for the environment tax. This is no problem and ensures the company is doing the right thing for the Eco system. We had tea coffee... More

What a great trip! First of all, you're heading to the GBR... how cool is that? Second of all, you have a great team taking you there! We visited two spots on the GBR with the Passions team. We snorkeled, sunbathed, took a ride on a glass bottom boat and had a pretty yummy lunch. All of that was great.... More

The tour was awesome from start to finish, crew were fantastic, professional and extremely efficient at getting you on and off the boat. The spots we went too were awesome and we even saw sea turtles, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it, can't recommend these guys enough.

Signed up on the recommendation from tour agent. Turned out to be very good and a great introduction to scuba diving as a newbie. The scuba session was split into 3 times and we had a comprehensive briefing and felt confident when we dived. I was under for 20 mins which was more than enough for a first try. Then... More

This tour was a great way to spend a day in the Great Barrier Reef. I was very impressed with the amount of staff on the boat as well as with their organization and effectiveness. All the staff were very friendly and able to answer many questions about the day and the reef. Aboard the boat there were stinger suits... More

The staff are all excellent, they go out of their way to make sure you have a great day and get the most out of the trip. I was very wary and... More

From the moment we boarded the boat the staff were super friendly, attentive, funny and very thorough. They explained how scuba diving and snorkelling would work and made sure they talked us through everything in detail. I chose to do scuba diving and my instructor Simon was amazing as well as hot!! We were in small groups of 4 so... More
