We had a great time snorkelling on the reef. It is a small 12 seater boat and there were no other boats around so we had the reef to ourselves! The ride out was quite exciting in itself. Gary & Kerryn were very helpful with equipment and tips. Gary gave a short talk on the boat and then got in the water to point things out to us that we might otherwise have missed. And to top it all, on the way back we saw 2 whales and, as it was such a small boat, we got far closer than we would have on a big whale-watching trip. Fantastic!

What a great morning out!!! Kerryn and Gary were fantastic with their knowledge and service. My kids get sea sick so we decided on the fast boat no problems at all for them with this and they got to experience snorkelling the reef. The snorkelling was one of the best experiences I have had seeing sharks, clown fish and turtles I absolutely loved it. This trip was well worth the money and we always felt we were in safe hands with this fantastic team. Thanks guys for a great morning out so much fun xxxx

We felt we were in safe hands with Kerryn and Garry as our guides, who are obviously intimate with the area of reef they shared with us, even having personal names for some of the local reef sharks! The journey out to the reef was a bit rough but exhilarating; it was pretty choppy but both the boat and skipper handled the conditions very well.

We saw lots of beautiful sea creatures including Green Turtles, Reef Sharks, Nudibranchs, Sea Cucumbers, Giant Clams and many beautifully colored corals and reef fish.

We had a fantastic trip to the reef. Great snorkeling in great company and super service. We can warmly recommend the tour, probably the best snorkeling experience in our life. We met at 8:45 and then sailed at high speed, so we could reach GBR in 50 minutes. This gave us over two and half hours in the water before returning, so this is very efficient planning if you do not have a full day, and you get value for money. The snorkeling location was great (Eddy Reef), offering both shallow water over the reef (<1m) and deeper water along the reef slope (10-12m), with much diversity in marine life to see, including a turtle and a shark! And the only boat around was ours.. The GBR as you dream it. Special mention to the crew Kerryn and Gary, who are very knowledgeable and service-minded, their friendliness and cheerfulness certainly contributed to making the day so special. We enjoyed every minute, under water and in the boat!
