“Fantastic day to remember”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

Lovely day, good boat. Fantastic staff. They had made a real effort with a veggie lunch. Had bad snorkling experience before but they were so professional. Great to see the reef and have a lovely CD with photos.

“Fantastic day snorkeling”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Great day out on the boat with these guys. Very friendly and informative crew took us to three different sites over the day, each one a little different to the others. Plenty of amazing fish and coral to see, including the occasional reef shark and turtle. Group sizes were a lot smaller than some of the other boats we saw going out.

Highly recommend this trip if you're looking to snorkel the outer reef.

“!!!”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

Had the most AMAZING experience with these guys! My boyfriend and I booked it on new years day and it was even better as only 10 people showed up on the day so we had a very personal and uncrowded snorkel. We were taken to three separate destinations to snorkel, my favourite being a spot on the reef where apparently one of the National Geographic photographers spent three days there. Would do this again.

“Amazing Day!”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

With thanks to the crew - John, Tim & kiwi Suze, we had the best day.
Yes the price of the full day trip did seem expensive but having done it, it is so worth it. To be honest all cruises are about the same price but wavelength appealed to us because of the smaller boat, less people, snorkellers only and the fact it visited 3 different reef sites.
Lovely crew, great educational tours, great boat and wonderful food & snacks!
Reef sites were great, fishes were plentiful and reef was colourful.
Thanks wavelength for an unforgettable day.

“Small groups, huge service!”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

The crew at Wavelength are amazing. Not only are they highly knowledgeable (you are on board with marine biologists), but are also genuinely friendly people who make you feel at ease and make you think you are on a boat with some mates! The buffet lunch provided hit the spot and was not overfilling.

We went to 3 snorkel sites and each one was more impressive than the last. The fact that the largest group size is 30 people means that your experience is a lot more personalised and you are not just another person on a huge charter boat. Underwater photos are taken throughout your day, which you can buy at the end (highly recommended... close up photos of your daily sea life encounters!)

The standout experience in our whole trip. Be prepared for a day to remember!
