Beware when booking - this company can't decide if they are sailing or not and really messed us around. They have a high minimum number (around 24 ish) and if they don't meet that number they don't sail. We booked a whole 2 week trip around this tour which was subsequently cancelled by the company. We were moved to another boat in another town and had to rearrange our trip around this. This cost us money and so we were pretty angry when they ran the original tour anyway. I'm sure its a fun trip but beware when booking.

Had a flawless day out diving and snorkelling the reef out of Cairns. Professional staff cater for all skills levels and experience, great food!, and comfortable vessel. Don’t come to Cairns without visiting the reef. Even snorkelling out there is often sensory overload.

We had three snorkels at different locations within Flynn Reef. Each was a little different. Whilst the coral was patchy there were loads of fish to see. We also saw turtles, giant clams and reef sharks. We also spotted a pod of dolphins off in the distance. The boat isn't as large as some of the others but was very comfortable, although there wasn't a lot of seating outdoors. Everything was well managed and the food was good and plentiful. There are fresh water showers & change rooms, both of which were handy to have.

We had a great day out, staff great and plenty to each and drink. On time and plenty of informing and guidelines while on boat. All equipment excellent and clean ship and enough room for sitting etc. my only issue was it was difficult to hear instructions, especially out the back, l have perfect hearing and struggled to hear what was being said, so l think either a video or loudspeaker especially if you are standing at the back, even inside his voice was low at times and was not able to be heard. This can be dangerous or cause issues with some people. The first stop was not as good as hoped as not a lot of fish or interesting sea coral etc. third snorkel was the best and though choppy was so interesting and full of different fish, take two towels and easy change of clothes for in between dives as you have to sit for lunch and not in wet clothes.staff were wonderful
