A FAST, FUN EXCITING BOAT RIDE JUST 15 MIN TO THE LOW ISLES REEF! Then one and a half hours of spectacular snorkelling in shallow protected water, followed by the 15 minute boat ride back. All up, this is a 2 and a quarter hour reef trip that will give you half a day to do something else and you won't get sea sick!

After a very quick 15 minute run out to the low isles, we kitted up in stinger suit, flippers, goggles and snorkel and jumped in. Spending 1.5 hours snorkelling around the amazing reef and seeing the marine life was the perfect amount of time. My family thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the 1050HP boat... More

We had an afternoon available and Reef sprinter might be the only snorkel tour available that you can do in just 2 hours. We went during low season and the weather conditions were great. The boat ride was only 15 mins to the snorkel spot and wasn't rough at all. The tour guide was informative and helpful. The Lycra suits... More

This service does what it says! A fast trip out to the low isles on their speed boat; which gives you plenty of time to snorkel and explore. Snorkel equipment and water was provided. There was a glass bottom boat for people who didn't want to snorkel (not sure why they would bother going on a snorkel boat to be... More

We were a little nervous about the ride out, but it was a good test of core and leg muscles and is over fast enough that it adds a bit of a thrill to the experience. Once out there we found ourselves with plenty to do, and the skipper took the glass bottom boat around to encourage us to explore... More

Mid morning trip to the Low Isles allowed us amazing and extensive coral viewing, along with turtle, small reef shark, sting ray and octopus. Hosts were professional, friendly and helpful. The boat ride was quick and smooth an easy and excellent way to see the reef without the crowds in a short space of time and would do again in... More

We went on the morning trip to low isles, travelled as a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 14 and 12, was a smooth boat ride out and we could see a turtle as the boat pulled up, so nice to be with a small group of people and snorkel where we wanted, lots of turtles to be seen... More

We did the Low Isles Trip and it was fantastic. The crew were great - very helpful and informative. The water was so clear and there was plenty of beautiful coral and fish to see. Definitely well worth the money! Next time we will try the Outer Reef for a different experience.

We took the Reef Sprinter to the Low Isle. The booking was easy, the service when we arrived professional, and the trip to the reef quick and easy. Our skipper (Rob I think) wasn't overly helpful or friendly, but at the end of the day this is about getting you out to the reef quick, snorkelling with not too many... More

Words cannot describe the experience of swimming in the reef. The high speed boat got us out to Low Isle in just 15 minutes, where we had 90 minutes to explore the magnificent reef. From tropical fish, sharks and stingrays, to some beautiful coral, the 20mtrs of visibility let us see everything. The crew were extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Thank GCA69
