An amazing day on Reef Experience. Boat was so well organised and had every moment possible at the Reef. Saw amazing things even though it was very choppy seas. Well worth booking the all inclusive. Didn't have to worry about a thing or pay an extras.

Most amazing day
The crew onboard the Reef Experience were extremely friendly and helpful. My wife and I were non-swimmers and were stressed with snorkeling, but the personal attention given by the crew completely removed the stress and with the help we completed the first ever snorkel in our life at Great Barrier Reef which was awesome! Thanks Reef Experience and thanks Travstar for referring us to this excellent team of tour operator!

Pretty good, but too many people really.
Pretty good, but too many people really.
Introductory scuba diving was too rushed to be a proper lesson.

The tour itself was fantastic
The tour itself was fantastic but the bus transfer back to the hotel at the end of the day was late. We actually had to wait on the pavement for about 20 minutes while they dropped their first load of passengers off.

The on-board bbq was good
The boat was crowded (mostly with young people), damp and uncomfortable. The on-board bbq was good, but finding a place to eat it without being jostled was a problem. The on-board tutorials were very well done by an enthusiastic crew.

My partner & I (both in our 60s)
My partner & I (both in our 60s) were accompanied by around sixty 18-25 year olds! Whilst there was no real problem with this, it is probably not the reef tour we should have taken.

The whole experience is worth more than the cost

Scuba dive was magnificent.
Had a great day out on the reef with a top crew and even better day. It was ideal out there with a great view of the reef and the life below. The snorkeling was great though the introductory Scuba dive was magnificent. Gives you a better experience than one could ever expect. Thanks for a great day.

A wonderful diving experience!
A wonderful diving experience! We enjoyed swimming with the coral and the fish. The staffs were nice and friendly. The food was not bad. However, there are not many facilities on the cruise. The toilets were small and difficult for us to get change!

Value for money!
Value for money in this Reef Experience and enjoy both Snorke and Scuba Diving in 2 Reef. Excellent Breakfast and buffet lunch. More Rice / added rice will be more appreciated.

Staff were professional
Staff were professional, very patient and fun! Their encouragement and support made my scuba dive successful! My friend was sick and they were comforting and supportive.

Amazing. First try at the great barrier reef and was excited. Intro scuba lessons were easy and fun, which makes me want to pursue it further. Only wished we could have saw some more reefs, the ones we saw were very limited in species and activity. Great food and a good time all around

truly value for money
This is the \\\"ONLY\\\" way you should see the reef!! Compared to other boats who charge double - this is truly value for money. The staff were so helpful, especially to our 11 year old son. Thanks Reef Experience!!!!

one of the most memorable trips yet.
The staff on the Reef Experience were fantastic. They went above and beyond to be helpful and friendly and really made this one of the most memorable trips yet.
The boat was great, and the private \\\"Top Deck\\\" experience was worth the extra cost. We spent the day in beautifully airconditioned comfort and were provided with fully cooked breakfast, amazing platters for lunch, and even included wine and cheese for the trip home.
I plan on making this tour part of my annual trip back to Cairns.
Posted By Gail Sheedy
The reef experience was the highlight for my husband. The trip out was comfortable, the staff knowledgable and friendly. We enjoy both the journey out to the reef as just as much as the diving and snorkling.
Posted By Catherine Vaara
Awesome experience! My first dive and it was at the reef with highly qualified and experienced instructors. I will certainly repeat!
Posted By Guy Bouchard
would recommend to all
the staff were very young, but very keen to show all a good time. one girl was very patient with me as i am not a good swimmer,with the snorkling.would recommend to all. thanks
