Plan to do this if you plan nothing else in Port Douglas and book early! Delightful crew and plenty of time at 3 reefs for my trip. Snorkelling with reef sharks and sea turtles was a bonus, the more untouched outer reef is definitely worth...More

This was an amazing experience right from the start. There was a lot of people on board, and every one of the staff was incredible. We did 3 dives and it was so well organised and efficient, without any feelings of being rushed or not...More

This is my second time to the Great Barrier Reef. The first time was with another company which was too crowded and the staff were very unfriendly and the food was terrible.

We chose this boat because of the reviews. The reef was awesome & the sights were awesome. The crew was impersonal & everything was treated as a process. Not personal. The following day we went out on AquaQuest- much better!! Nicer boat, fewer people.
