The highlight of the tour was the Glass Bottom Boat trip but its duration was too short - only 40 minutes! And as all corals appeared dark their real colours were unable to be seen. From my experience, the Great Barrier Reef was nothing great! It is just a hype!

We did this tour with our young kids 5 and 2. It was fantastic! The boat crew were amazing, the island was great and had lots to do. When I went snorkelling we instantly saw fish, rays and turtles. It was so much fun for our whole family. The driver of the glass bottom boat was awesome! We highly recommend this tour. Well worth your $$

Staff were very helpful. Lovely island and snorkelling was great. Glass bottom boat skipper was very knowledgeable. My parents had mobility issues but still managed to go on the glass bottom boat. It was a little difficult with a walker to have the buffet lunch as it required many stairs to enter. Food was plentiful. The larger CAT boat was very smooth and comfortable. Thankyou all.
