This was a good value and fun day to experience the Reef. We had a fun and well qualified crew. The boat was in great shape. Lunch, wine, fruit and cheese and crackers were all done nicely and really hit the spot during the day out. Both spots provided a wonderful snorkel experience but the second stop had enough current... More

We did a snorkel trip with Reef Daytripper and had an exceptional day at a really reasonable price, especially compared to the large companies. We were part of a group of 14 (max group size is 20 with them) of mixed nationalities and they took time to ensure everyone understood the safety briefs and was comfortable before getting in the...

As someone who lived in Cairns for the better part of seven years, I've seen my fair share of the reef trips on offer. The Day tripper was definitely one of the best so far! Instead of being one of 300 other passengers, the day tripper takes a max of 20 people, which makes it that much easier for the... More

Knowledgable staff made the snorkeling better and more satisfied. They provided a snorkeling guide tour for us and Staff- Chris really helped us to explore the beauty of Upolu reef. The coral was amazing beautiful with all kinds of different colors and shapes and they grow massive! I was quite surprised that the coral at Upolu was much beautiful than... More

Couldn't have asked for a better day. The crew was lovely and knowledgable, the boat takes up to 20 people (I believe) but we only had 9 which was great, and of course the marine life was just unbeatable. We had two long opportunities to snorkel, and the reef was just teeming with fish and coral. Really better than I... More

We had a wonderful time sailing with Paul, Hannah and Chris. The small group size really adds to it, and the boat is lovely to hang out on before/after exploring the outer reef. We also did a big boat trip out to Green Island, and I would definitely recommend this one! We spent all evening talking about it and how... More

We had a great day at the reef with Paul and his crew. The crew was funny, professional and did a good introduction for snorkling and scuba diving. We got to learn some nice thing about the reef and it's inhabitants. Although I have never scuba dived in my life before and was a bit nervous about it they made... More

We had an absolutely amazing day with the Reef Daytripper crew. The small group size meant we had extra care and support while scuba diving and we were able to make friends with many other tourists. The crew were so professional and knowledgeable about their roles, they were funny and helped to put your mind at ease about diving! The... More

This is going to be a little longer since I tried to reviewed it as detailed as possible. We booked this tour because we wanted to be on a small, familiar boat and not on a 60+ passenger boat and because of their positive tripadvisor reviews. Went out yesterday to the reef and had an amazing day with two phenomenal... More
