What people are saying about Great Barrier Reef

This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Cairns this year. Everything was superb - the vessel was brilliant, the crew fantastic - very attentive and professional whilst also entertaining, after all its meant to be fun and it delivered in buckets. The catering on the trip was also fabulous, plenty of yummy fresh salad, hot cooked meats and also tea, coffee and fresh fruit. A bar is also open for other beverages. The helli ride was great I realised the conditions for landing were tricky with a western breeze so kudos to the pilot who made the trip seamless. Experiencing the reef was magical - seeing the different beautiful fish species, meeting Wally (I later realised is friendly!), a sea turtle and a little shark. I was lucky with the weather on this day which was perfect with a slight breeze (thanks to Mother Nature / God)! I’d like to thank the crew for a fantastic day and I really hope to come back to do this again with my family one day!

All the activity has been excellent, the boat, the food, the snorkeling and the helicopter flight. A shame that the day is over
