The staff were very good and helpful. My 4 year old son who did snorkling for the 1st time really enjoyed and did the snorkling tour for a short time. The glass bottom tour even though finished was organised again just for us as my wife and son had missed out. The Lunch was yummm.. Overall very happy and had... More

My sister and I had an absolutely amazing time on this trip! We were travelling for nearly 3 months and this was honestly one of the, if not THE, best and most memorable days we had. The crew were fabulous, really really friendly and welcoming (knowledgeable and passionate too). In particular, Simon was extremely warm and funny and his efforts... More

Make sure you check it at the Harbor first before heading to the actual boat. We went to the boat first and had to go back to the main headquarters at the harbor. Not a big deal though. Once we were inside they did a great job of handling the large group we had on the boat. I just wish... More

We had a wonderful day out on the reef. The staff were friendly, patient and helpful. My daughter didn't think she would be able to manage the snorkelling but the staff got her in the water on a tour with other first timers and she never looked back. If you aren't going in the water, the glass bottom boat is... More

The attraction of the Great Barrier Reef goes without saying. The Passions of Paradise crew work their socks off to make sure you have a good time. They are very attentive without being overbearing and they make the day. They even organise assisted swimming groups for people who are less confident in the water.

My wife and I had a wonderful day out of the Passions of Paradise Reef Tour. The boat was modern and the staff were all friendly, competent, and eager to make sure everyone had a great day. The company really does a lot of great work for conservation that you won't find with their competitors, which is why I would... More

Me and my son had a good experience on this boat tour. My 12 year old son did scuba diving for the very first time because of the encouragement and support provided by the wonderful and compassionate instructor -Irene on board. Russel was also very good in providing great instructions to everyone else. When i opted out of scuba diving,... More
