I've been out on a few other reef tours, and I have to compliment the staff at Sunlover on their organisation and professionalism. From the time you step on the boat until they bid you goodbye, it is well-run and the staff are exceptional; special mention to Tane for being so personable and attentive and to Pablo for his extensive...

Was worried there would not be a lot to keep him entertained but the day went so fast and there were so many activities. My husband and I both loved the guided snorkeling tour and were amazed at...

The travel agent at a shop in Cairns Esplanade recommended this tour to us based on the weather and the day. I had heard of Green Island but he suggested this for activities. They offered semi submersible and glass bottom boat in case we decided not to snorkel but still see the reef. But I am glad we did, I... More

I had the best time of my Australia trip with Sunlover. Amazingly helpful crew. They made my 1st scuba diving experience so amazing. They are ready to help in anyway you want. Totally worth the money. Food on board is a little sad.

We chose Sunlover cruises as we wanted a pontoon so we were able to hop in and out of the water easily. Because we are students we were able to get a student discount that helped us out a lot.
