Crew was really friendly and professional. The trip was really nice and we visit some amazing spots around the reef. We booked an intro dive which was just right, crew was not too helpful, thought, as the tanks were really heavy and someone can injure their back getting off the water as they not help you with that. Also I think groups are too big so you can miss some explanations and the education about the reef if you are not next to the guide. They should have more bilingual crew members.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Hi Paula, thanks for your feedback! The Tour Specialists team are pleased you enjoyed your time on the Outer Barrier Reef. Introductory diving can be a little daunting and the gear can be unexpectedly cumbersome but once you are under the water there is nothing quite like it which makes the experience all worthwhile. We will pass on your feedback to the crew however next time you visit please be sure to let us know of your language needs and we can ensure you travel on a day with a crew member who is bi-lingual. We look forward to welcoming you back to Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef soon.

Very professional but fun also. Good food and dive service/gear etc. 3 dives at 3 sites were a bit rushed but you could choose to do 2 if that is a problem. Rating the sites, 1st site 2.5 stars, 2nd site was about 4.5 stars third was 2.5 stars. Lots of bleaching and damage can be seen but still decent vibrant fish life. Very safety conscious also and dive guide was professional without being 'great'. Also this company was best price around to buy this tour.

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Thank you Grant for your review of your Great Barrier Reef tour from Port Douglas. Very glad you enjoyed the day and we look forward to seeing you back in Cairns in the near future

I can highly recommend this trip. Staff were absolutely lovely, boat was well-designed, numbers were not too many and three separate sights gave plenty of snorkling time. I would definitely book with Poseidon again. A fantastic day!

Response From Barrier Reef Australia

Thanks for your feedback Emma. The Tour Specialists are pleased you had a great day on the Southern Ribbon Reef and enjoyed the smaller numbers on your reef cruise from Port Douglas. We hope to see you back again soon - maybe in Winter next time to see the Minke Whales.

Sea was rough but crew remained positive and we still enjoyed snorkel sessions.
