This boat is much smaller than the other boat I took onto the reef and so there were less people. This definitely seemed less touristy than the bigger ships. The island they take you to is lovely and there’s plenty of space to snorkel and...More

The Wavedancer was totally overbooked. By the time we got to the island and put on the lycra suits (which didn't fit one of the family), the guided snorkelling trip had left. We went out on our own, trying to follow the tour guide to...More

I first visited Low Isle on the Great Barrier Reef in 1980 so when I had a chance to return earlier this month I jumped at the chance. The mode of transport is so much better these days but thankfully the Isles haven’t changed. It’s...More
