    Staff were very attentive to the need for medication given the ride out to the reef was predicted to be rough. I took advice to take meds the night before and in the morning and was blissfully able to enjoy. Those who were ill were so well looked after that they were able to recover and enjoy the dives. The lunch was great - and nice to have us vegetarians catered for - they kept it separate so food wasn't stolen by those hungry meat eaters. I was very appreciated by all of this. Best reef experience ever!!

    Best reef cruise in Cairns!!! Lovely staff, great food, and no hidden costs. I wasn't sure about a scuba dive but after all the information given by the staff they got me so excited. As it is all inclusive I was able to give it a shot and I loved it!!

    I chose Reef Experience because of value – one all inclusive price whilst the other companies visiting the Great Barrier Reef start with a trip price and then add reef levies, bus transfers, diving, wetsuit, glass bottom boat etc and people end up paying a lot more for less. Reef Experience exceeded all my expectations! Everything is provided – even the sunscreen. Reef Experience’s crews’ passion for the reef is by far their best asset. My partner can’t swim well and the crew got in the water and assisted him see the Great Barrier Reef. The marine biologist was knowledgeable and my highlight was giving scuba diving a try! I would recommend this tour! Lucy, England.

    This tour provided snorkeling, diving, food, transportation and it was reasonably priced! The crew were fantastic! They explained every aspect of the day very clearly and made us feel very welcomed. Our favorite part of the day was Scuba diving. I had never done it before and our instructor was a dream! and we were able to see several awesome animals during the dive. Thank you guys for a truly memorable day!

    The crew was very nice and helpful at all times. It was my firs time doing diving and the crew made it a great experience. Seeing a big turtle while snorkeling was awesome, but also diving and being so close to the Reef. Everything was perfect I would recommend this tour to anyone.

    Very friendly and helpful, as I am not a confident swimmer especially Brittany who helped me while I was snorkelling. The best part was seeing the Great Barrier Reef and being able to tick it off my bucket list. I would recommend and would love to do experience again

    The crew were so friendly they know what to do to make us feel safe. I think that the snorkeling was the best a lot of different wildlife and lot of colors. It was like visiting another planet. It was different from anywhere else I have ever been. I always wanted to come here. Thank you for this experience.

    I booked Reef Experience because I wanted to go diving! Duh! The crew were absolutely wonderful. Incredibly friendly and very supportive through everything. The best part - can I say the whole day? I had a magnificent time on this boat. The staff were incredible and my experience would have been completely different without them. Thank you! <3

    I booked my day reef trip with Reef Experience cause it has most options - diving, snorkelling, glass bottom boat and suitable for beginners! Crew is excellent. The best part of the day was seeing the reef up close - I felt like I was myself in the documentary. Worth definitely to book with you guys again !!!

    Thank you so much to the amazing crew for taking care of me when I was nervous and making sure I still got to see everything. My favourite part of the day was seeing the colourful corals and amazing fish everywhere.

    Aren't we a lucky country, far north is a treasure and so is the far south coast (Home). The crew were fantastic! Top class. The best parts of the day included snorkelling, whales, tropical fish but most importantly THE CORALS.
