AquaQuest Port Douglas Reviews


David Lincoln

I booked a snorkelling cruise for my sister and myself on Aquaquest (Port Douglas) in September. While I have visited the reef many times, it was my sister's first reef experience and she thoroughly enjoyed it. The safety briefing was comprehensive and presented professionally, with a little cheeky humour that put people at ease. It helped set the tone for the day. For a new operation, this boat runs very smoothly already and the crew are engaging and attentive. Both Agincourt and St. Crispins Reefs are stunning and the team really emphasises the importance of enjoying but not damaging the reef. We were fortunate to have magnificent weather and good visibility for most of the day. Overall though, I would happily book and recommend the Aquaquest again. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the UNREAL experience guys. The boat was really nice and the staff even nicer. The entire day was really well put together. I did the two introductory dives and went out with Stefan who was unreal. Really chilled and thorough with all the safety briefs. The girl taking the photos (sorry cant remember her name) was also great giving loads of info about how to take the best pics while underwater. I would 100% recommend this boat and look forward to coming back and seeing more of the reef with you guys. Thanks for helping me tick off a bucket list item. This is truly a unforgettable experience.
