Activity: I partook in two scuba dives and two snorkelling sessions, the former of which my instructor showed me some unforgettable views. Food: Fresh and good selection on offer. For lunch there was a meat platter, bread, green salad, potato salad and a creamy mushroom pasta. On the journey back there was a fruit platter, crackers and cheese. Crew: Knowledgable... More

Great staff, great food and a great snorkeling and scuba diving experience. This is one of the smaller boats that will take you out to the reef and only carries a maximum of around 20 guests, so there is only a few guests per staff. Good atmosphere and a lot of great people, and I will definitely recommend this trip... More

With so many choices, a friend told me about Reef Daytrippers. They have a max of 20 people. It was an amazing day, with beautiful sitings at the reef, and excellent professional staff. The food was a highlight too. Go with this company, I loved my experience!

I had such a good time with reef day tripper. The crew was amazing (passionate, helpful and friendly) and we have seen a lot of turtles, fishes, and even a shark! And it's so much better to be on a boat like that and enjoy the trip to the reef. I highly recommend it.

My family and I enjoyed an all-day catamaran cruise plus two snorkels of the Great Barrier Reef. Booking was effortless, the snorkeling guides were friendly and knowledgeable, the scuba guide seemed like a cool guy (though we did not scuba) and the skipper effortlessly delivered us to and returned us home from the reef sites under power and sail. Food... More

Spent the day with Reef Daytripper and cannot recommend them highly enough. The day was superbly organised with snorkelling in 2 excellent locations and trial dives for those that were interested. The team were professional, enthusiastic and above all caring for their guests. The briefings were clear and uncomplicated and the guided tour of the reef was a major plus.... More

We picked the Daytripper to have a sail with our dive but unfortunately that day was very calm so we had to motor in and out. Nevertheless, we had a great time. The small boat meant a very low passenger to crew ratio. Our dives were 2 people with the guide. The crew was fun and attentive. Overall a great... More

We are so happy that we chose this experience instead of the big island trip that several passengers on our cruise had done. We only had 9 people ( they take 20 max) and so much personal attention from the crew of 3. There is plenty of sun or shade on the trip out to the reef and they gave... More

Had a fantastic day out with Paul and his gang. Went for two scuba dives where we saw the beautiful Reef, a turtle, sharks, sting rays and all kinds of fish. Paul took his time to explain all diving procedures slowly and clearly which was great. There was more than enough food and the fruit finished off the day nicely.... More
