    Snorkelling and looking at the amazing fish and the reef. This was a new experience for us and we had the most amazing experience
  • Barb_H
    Sensational day - sun was shining, water was warm and the scenery was fantastic. The water slide was a Massive bit with the kids and mum and dad

    The trip out was full of information and you could go to the lower deck to enquire and sign up for activities. If you wanted to Hire a GoPro or book a Helicopter flight over the reef, these had to be booked before the boat left the dock. The pontoon was well equipped, lots of snorkelling and diving equipment, including life vest for snorkelling. The sea walk was amazing and the mini sub was a good way to get up close to the reef. Lunch was a good buffet spread. There was a water side for all ages, and shallow platform for kids to snorkel in. There were also lots of life guards watching over everyone. I highly recommend the sea walk if you are unable to dive. It is a well organised trip and it was a great experience, thank you.

    This is definitely a must do experience in Cairns. There are so many helpful staff members and so well organized. We were able to experience all the extras helicopter ride, guided snorkel tour, bottomless boat experience, and even had 1 who didn't want to get wet and she didn't. And she still got to experience seeing the reef and wildlife in living there!!! The only issue is make sure you buy the motion sickness pills and take them before you leave. Other than that it was the best experience I've ever had!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

    We booked onto this tour a few days in advance and it did not disappoint. We wanted an option that offered a variety of ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef and the sunlover tour did exactly that. After boarding the boat, we headed to the pontoon - beware that the sea sickness can be pretty bad at this point. There was a marine biologist talk were we were able to learn about coral and the history of the reef - Ted was very informative and knowledgeable throughout the day! Once on the pontoon there are many options - snorkelling, glass bottomed boat and semi-submersible submarine are all included along with a buffet lunch, then there's the option to pay for additional experiences. It was a great day out and is definitely worth the money.

    Great activities and options for kids. Snorkel gear really good quality and anti fog spray really great when compared to other operators. Only negative people hogging seats and saving them, some of our group had to sit on the floor on the way back, some people saving seats both inside and outside either dedicate seats or manage it better

    We went out to the reef with our 6 year old and 10 year old and had a great day. The snorkelling was amazing and the kids loved it.I would highly recommend booking into A guided snorkelling tour it was worth every cent. Just make sure as soon as you get on the boat you see crew to book your time for the day so you can Book in earlier in the day if possible so then you can enjoy free time snorkelling feeling more confident. The semi submarine was awesome also as well as the water slide. The lunch was beautiful. We also did book the helicopter to take us home it was an amazing experience and was worth every cent. The kids and adults loved it and was a memorial experience we will never forget. Just make sure when you book the helicopter ride you indicate what time you want it to take you home so it doesn’t eat into your time On the reef. Fantastic day had by all
  • Adam B
    Excellent trip and didn’t disappoint. We bought the extras of a basic scuba dive (never dived before) and a Go-Pro hire. Was fantastic, plenty of time on the pontoon & well organized. Would recommend.
