Nice day on the water and the captain and guide were great guys. However, if you are expecting a snorkeling trip to the great Barrier reef choose another option. One stop is at a marginal reef area about a 30 minute ride and the second is at fish feeding station where you wait until other boats finish at the spot.
Highlight in this trip was to visit the Whitsundays island and beach with the soft sand. Our captain and skipper were somewhat energised, and I felt like I was in a commercial with all superlative comments. But it didnt bother me, this is only imformation.
The snorkelling was so so, if you really want to see nice reefs and fish then you have to go to Cairns and go to the outer reefs as northen as possible. This trip didnt supply with fins and the latest equipment.
Maybe if youre under 30 and havent travelled a lot then you would rate this higher. But if youre an experienced globetrotter and reef-lover then you opt for something else.
This is definately a very very good tour. Groups are the right size and the day it's worth the money.
Very well organized and right timing in all the places visited. Exceptional snorkeling and good choice of food also for vegetarians.
It's a must do!
The tour was exciting and beautiful. The only complaint I had was the reef we saw had big dead spots, and of course since the wind had been blowing, the water was not very clear. Otherwise a fun and fabulous day.
