Although wind and wave were a little strong, underwater was beautiful. The helicopter ride was amazing, and looking beautiful reef above the sky was breathtaking. Our diving instructor was excellent and all the crews on board were super friendly and helpful. We highly recommend them, and we will do the same tour again!

The vessel was comfortable, the Staff were friendly and helpful, the food was well presented and tasty. The first snorkeling spot was great and plenty to see but the second spot was not as interesting.

A faultless event from start to finish!
An atmosphere of fun and friendliness throughout, but always with a strong undercurrent of safety for all on board.
The depth of care, and attention to detail. was exceptional; catering to every level of skill, ability, and nervousness, with kindness and encouragement.
Seeing and exploring the reef speaks for itself. You must do this!
We were certainly well fed too, and it was all fresh and delicious, and of excellent quality!
The entire crew, even Uncle Eddie, were fabulous!
We would do it again tomorrow!

Snorkelling on the reef was a memorable experience. The steak and salads were amazing. But the fish was a little bit dry. Sausages in bread would be amazing it’s a Aussie thing to do.

We visited the exceptionally beautiful Saxon and Hastings Reefs during our trip. We opted for the snorkelling only option. We had plenty of time in the water exploring these magical outer reefs, and would do the trip again in a heartbeat. The staff were helpful and efficient. However, despite being relatively protected by the reef, the currents were quite strong on the day we went out, so it may be challenging for an inexperienced swimmer to get the most out of it. Also, the stinger suits were $10 each, despite being claimed as 'included' in the Viator package advertised. Nonetheless, we were very satisfied with the experience.

The crew were my highlight! I have snorkelled on the Great Barrier Reef before, unfortunately the sea was too rough for my liking. My husband enjoyed the snorkelling, greatly. Throughout the day the crew were friendly, knowledgeable, caring and professional. Thanks for a lovely day.

First impressions count - and on this occasion it was very impressive. When we arrived at the wharf and saw our boat (Evolution) it was a fantastic start to an extremely enjoyable day. Staff were attentive, courteous, competent and very helpful - they seemed equally at home looking after experienced divers as much as novice snorkellers. Saxon Reef was a good start to our water activity after which we enjoyed an impressive lunch. Hastings Reef was next - how good was this site. This was only the second occasion that my wife had snorkelled and she was super impressed with the underwater world at Hastings. A great day all round.

Very nice lunch.
Scones needed something to go with them.

Crew helpful.

Round Seating cubicle not particular comfortable.

Intro dive worth the extra $50.

Having to pay fee then another fuel fee is a pain… just make it one bill.
Given choppy seas, was ready to come home after first stop. Not thru sea sick, just ready.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Second reef was probably the better of the two. However, at the first I saw a shark n large turtle, that was very exciting.

What an amazing day. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and fun and the yacht itself was modern and clean with plenty of seating options inside and outside.
The snacks and lunch provided were fresh and delicious and plentiful!

It was a bit overcast on the day we went and the water a little rough but once we got out to the reef locations, it was fine. The water was warm, but wetsuits were available for an extra charge if required.
Plenty of staff watching and helping so we always felt safe.

It was a last minute decision to do this reef day tour and I am so glad we did! Incredible day and amazing memories out on the reef- absolutely beautiful!
Thanks guys, will be back!
