This was probably the best experience I've had in Australia! Myself and boyfriend done snorkeling and scuba diving on the day cruise yesterday and it was amazing! I am terrified of water but the instructors were incredible, big shout out to Jen who was our instructor for the dive she was extremely helpful, yas are all legends!!.

I have dreamed of scuba diving on the great barrier reef my entire life. This trip exceeded all of my expectations. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. The crew was amazing! All of them were so kind, funny, knowledgeable, and respectful of the reef. I could definitely tell that they love what they do. Im not sure if I will ever have the opportunity to return to Cairns, but I would definitely do this trip all over again. Thank you for helping me make my dreams come true!
