We had the most fantastic day out on the reef thanks to your recommendation. The boat, staff and location was absolutely brilliant. Everything was so well organized and the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. We were picked up from our accommodation by comfortable coach which was waiting for us when we arrived back tired and blown away by our amazing day out on the reef. Can't thank you enough for your recommendation and for the most amazing experience with memories that will last a life time.
