A beautiful day out on the Great Barrier Reef with Quicksilver Cruises. My husband and two teenage daughters went diving for the second time, however, stated that they felt safer, more informed and less rushed than their first experience. I felt safe in the instructors' ability, experience and knowledge and because of this my family had an exceptional day, with many fond memories to be cherished.

Seamless booking and boarding getting to the Reef. Fun time doing all the activities and a breeze getting back all good. The food provided was good the staff was friendly and very informative, they constantly asked questions and catered to our needs, they explained everything we needed to know well run indeed. Would recommend to anyone.

This trip comes with a mixed review. As a family with children, it would have got a 5 star. The boat ride was great - kids can move around and have lots of fun. For the child who didn't want to snorkel, he could go on the submarine or laugh at us snorkelling through the windows of the pontoon. So excellent value for him! As an adult, I would give it a 3 star (hence the average of 4 stars). The boat was VERY crowded, the pontoon and water were crowded. Also, the area for snorkelling was very restrictive. If you paid more money you were allowed to go further away but if not stay within the roped area which at times was crowded with people. Also, the "marine biologist" was very condescending about the fact that I had only paid for the basic package when I accidentally strayed beyond the roped compound. The sea life and especially the turtles were AMAZING. The reef was pretty but not like the photos - lots of damage and bleaching. In short - if you have small children this is a great option. If you prefer something a bit more personal then this is NOT the boat for you.
