I had a great time out at the reef! Even though there were quite a lot of people on the boat, it didn‘t feel that way at all. Everything was very well organised, from getting your equipment to making sure everybody was back on board after both dives/snorkelling trips! The reefs we went to were stunning and there was a lot of beautiful wildlife and fish to be seen! Would definitely book this tour again!
It was a wonderful and delightful experience to witness the majestic and beautiful Great Barrier Reef
Devashish Tripathi 3 months ago

It was a wonderful and delightful experience to witness the majestic and beautiful Great Barrier Reef, at 2 locations with the Down Under Cruise and Dive. 2 beautiful Snorkelling sites and experienced PADI certified Divers made the experience a very comfortable and memorable. Had a great time with them.

It was a great experience
Camille Jaquinet 6 months ago

It was a great experience! It was my first time scuba diving, the crew made us feel in good and confident, explain everything and were really attentive to our needs and questions. It was amazing! The crew was super friendly and in a really happy mood which was nice. The food was ok, the salads were really nice. The boat is really big and we were only about half the people on board, which was really nice, if the boat was full it may be a bit too much people.

The snorkel and dive sites were great and the range of food on board was really good too
Beth Goldthorpe 7 months ago

The snorkel and dive sites were great and the range of food on board was really good too! We hired an underwater camera for the day which only cost around $60 and the photo quality was great, glad we didn’t use our own instead. Highly recommend, the staff were very friendly and helpful!

The crew of this ship was very nice and friendly
Lydia Fernandez 7 months ago

The crew of this ship was very nice and friendly, and the option to upgrade to an introductory scuba dive was great! Diving and snorkelling around the reef was so much fun and I got to see so much doing both. On our way back to the port they offered a free glass of wine and some fruit and cheese, it was a really nice and thoughtful ending to a great trip.

Thanks for a great day out on the reef today guys
Cassandra Beutel 11 months ago

Thanks for a great day out on the reef today guys! All of the crew were friendly, very accommodating and professional. A special thanks to the tall blonde lady behind the bar for going above and beyond to make everyone feel valued (even that adorable baby) and the lovely gentleman who picked me up in the little boat when I went out a wee bit too far while snorkelling, ohhh and the food! When I've done these tours before they always run out of meat. Not with you guys! Amazing spread and a seemingly never-ending supply of prawns?! Incredible!

Great day with a great team
Matt Grieger 1 year ago

Great day with a great team! Highly enthusiastic and knowledgeable which made the day run smoothly! Highly recommend to anyone travelling to the reef and unsure about which company to go with! Food provided onboard was also surprisingly nice not what you’d expect on a complimentary meal! Ticked all boxes!

As described in the reviews the cruise
Venkata Sistla 1 year ago

As described in the reviews the cruise, the crew were excellent. Vegetarian food options were available as mentioned on the voucher and crew taking it seriously that you have a good time and safe experiences. They go out of their way to meet your needs and the best vessel in Cairns....the whole trip is worth the money!

I joined the introductory scuba diving tour
Hang Mei Kyomi Kwok 1 year ago

I joined the introductory scuba diving tour. It was my first time diving and I had a great experience. The information session before the dive was very detailed and it made me feel safe and comfortable. Wetsuit needs extra costs but others are free of charge. The ratio of divers and instructor was 4:1. There were metal bars under the sea for us to hold on and I felt very safe. We dived for 25 mins. There was also some diving practices underwater to ensure our safety. We held on the instructor's arm by arm to ensure we won't get lost. I saw many marine creatures like cuttlefish. Will definitely be back!

This is run like a well oiled machine
Robyn Lock 1 year ago

This is run like a well oiled machine. They have it all covered and they cater to most. Whether it's food types, swimming abilities or even language. They are really knowledgeable about the Reef and they are happy to share their passion with you. They look after you so well when you are in the water there really is nothing to worry about. Lunch is great and the timing worked out well with time for snorkelling and time to eat. Definitely glad we did it.
