What people are saying about Cairns
Great snorkeling experience. If you can’t swim, I say don’t bother with this activity and just go to an aquarium instead. The glass bottom boat and semi sub were okay but for the price offered, I don’t think it’s good value the snorkel is experience is by far better). Went with a non-swimming friend and I personally felt like it didn’t do much for them. But if you snorkel, this is an amazing experience ! Definitely the highlight of my trip!
Amazing day! the boat/ferry to get there is always so packed on the weekends so try and do it on a weekday. No sand there all hard rocks so have proper shoes or swimming shoes. However amazing and so much to do!
Had an amazing time with Ocean Freedom! They let us spend hours snorkeling on 2 reef destinations. Crew are friendly and made sure everyone’s safe.
Our trip was amazing. Was definitely worth upgrading to Gold Class on the train, exceptional service.
Lovely boat trip with amazing diving in the coral reef. The crew was 10/10
