Tour was extremely well organised and ran on time. The staff on board were knowledgeable and helpful. Cleanliness was taken quite seriously in regards to Covid-19 AND the copious amounts of bird poop that fills up the pontoon in between visits! The lunch provided was fresh and delicious - a choice between a lamb / vegetarian / chicken wrap, with a slice of cake, some quiche and roast veggies. The activities on board were excellent; choice of snorkelling, diving, glass bottom boat and submergible boat, not to mention the amazing water slide that drops you into the ocean! It was enough to fill our day really well. I've been on another of these type of tours before that didn't have anywhere near the amount of activities on board, and I wouldn't hesitate to book with this company again.
So glad I did the trip! Prior to booking it, I thought it was a bit much to pay for a day trip. However I’m really glad i did it, you really get your moneys worth. We were taken to two very beautiful reefs. The snorkel equipment and wetsuits were provided, photographer was available in the water to take photos (you can decide at the end of the day if you’d like to purchase the photos you’re in) and the morning + afternoon tea + lunch was really lovely. Also for anyone who isn’t a confident swimmer! The team are constantly in the water and are happy to take you on a water tour while you hold onto their ring buoy. The team are passionate about the environment but also your experience. I give it to them hope this helps you and them through these uncertain times.
Boat crew were amazing on Aqua Quest especially Crista and Lily. Kids had a fantastic time even though the weather was less than perfect. Snorkeling and introductory Scuba lesson which was so affordable. Highly recommend this tour.
Great day out. I felt do safe using the flotation vests which helped me to relax and enjoy my snorkelling experience. The food was delicious and there was plenty. The boat ride out to the reef and back was very enjoyable.
Our trip to Green Island was enjoyable and a first experience for me and my partner. We enjoyed our day at Green Island swimming at the beach and visiting the crocodile park.
