    I booked Reef Experience as I wanted to experience the Great Barrier Reef with my friends. Crew were cheerful, super helpful and informative. Completely approachable and had good sense of humor. The highlight of the trip was seeing two sharks and a turtle on our marine life tour with Michelle. Michelle was amazing. She was full of knowledge and facts and did her best to make our time happy and enjoyable.

    Excellent crew. Harry and Michelle were very knowledgeable and very attentive to their customers on the biology tour/snorkel. There was a crew member with a dark beard who outdid them all though--he was so calm and kind. Amazing work! The first snorkel was the best (cuz it was new--the whole thing was amazing!) The customer service and extremely attentive staff were out of this world. I had two small panic moments and both were immediately noticed and addressed before I could say anything. I felt so safe THANK YOU!

    The crew were great and helpful and funny. The scuba diving with Kaz was the best. This was value for money - we wanted something that included scuba diving at no additional charge.

    I chose Reef Experience because of value – one all inclusive price whilst the other companies visiting the Great Barrier Reef start with a trip price and then add reef levies, bus transfers, diving, wetsuit, glass bottom boat etc and people end up paying a lot more for less. Reef Experience exceeded all my expectations! Everything is provided – even the sunscreen. Reef Experience’s crews’ passion for the reef is by far their best asset. My partner can’t swim well and the crew got in the water and assisted him see the Great Barrier Reef. The marine biologist was knowledgeable and my highlight was giving scuba diving a try! I would recommend this tour! Lucy, England.

    Best reef cruise in Cairns!!! Lovely staff, great food, and no hidden costs. I wasn't sure about a scuba dive but after all the information given by the staff they got me so excited. As it is all inclusive I was able to give it a shot and I loved it!!

    Staff were very attentive to the need for medication given the ride out to the reef was predicted to be rough. I took advice to take meds the night before and in the morning and was blissfully able to enjoy. Those who were ill were so well looked after that they were able to recover and enjoy the dives. The lunch was great - and nice to have us vegetarians catered for - they kept it separate so food wasn't stolen by those hungry meat eaters. I was very appreciated by all of this. Best reef experience ever!!
