We were not able to swim but we found the Low Isles Sailing trip was perfect for us. We were picked up at our hotel (Cairns Sheraton) and taken to Port Douglas. The sailing ship was very comfortable. The glass bottom boat tours were perfect for the three couple aboard who were not getting in the water. We also enjoyed... More

Far too many people, small squashed areas for snorkelling so we kept bumping into others! (In all that ocean!!!!!). It was all very rushed and not relaxing at all . Also the reef itself was BROWN! Last time I went on Ocean Spirit and that was phenomenal.

The boat was big and well equipped for a day out yo the Reef. Complimentary tea and coffee served before departure and time to the Reef was 1 1/2 hours. Once there you could snorkel, scuba dive, take a helicopter flight or go in the underwater submersible which we saw plenty of fish, coral and even a large sea turtle.... More

A great day out on barrier reef at the Agincourt Reef. Friendly and helpful staff. The journey takes 2 hours each way on the very fast boat to get to the platform. The platform is huge. Plenty is space to rest etc All snorkelling kit is included and they have beginner sessions. For the 'pro' just lit up and go.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my recent experience snorkelling on this trip from Port Douglas. Staff are friendly and the trip is very well run. All equipment is provided and included in the cost, as is lunch. Worth paying the higher price compared to others on the market. Diving is also available if you choose. I would definitely rebook using this operator. The... More

Recently went on the quicksilver tours to the outer barrier reef wasn't sure what to expect. When we arrive to the pooton I wasn't extremely nervous and suffering with some sea sickness. The water on the day was very choppy but the guys reassured us it was fine to enter the water. We did a guided snorkeling tour which was... More

A large group of us went out and we had a great time. Sea was a bit choppy on the way out but it was worth the trip to the low Isles. One of the quickest trips (45 minutes) will get you to a nice little island with access to the reef. Great for beginners with the crew being very... More
