    No you dont Nick. As long as you are medically fit according to the Queensland Regulations you can participate in an introductory dive.

    Brilliant to hear but to scuba dive with this company did you need a diving certificate?

    This was the best part of our trip to Australia from the United States. The staff were exceptional and we were so cared for the entire day. TOP DECK is the way to go, I would do it again for sure! Val was our guide for the day and she was a real gem, and made me feel safe in the water.

    Worth the extra fee for Top Deck! This was such a fun day! Shinee was our attendant and her positive attitude, good sense of humor and desire for us to have an amazing adventure made our first visit to the Great Barrier Reef and our first snorkeling and scuba experiences better than we could ever have imagined. Also Martin was there with the other two up top with us, and he was great as well. We would go with this company again. Thanks so much to Shinee!

    Can’t recommend this package & crew enough. Not having to wait for anything meant we had more time enjoying the reef. Val was awesome, as was the rest of the team. It was fantastic having VIP access to our own area & to be so well looked after on & off the boat. We even got to meet Frank the fish! The reef was spectacular & can’t wait to do it again in the future!!

    The crew were very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Seeing the Great Barrier Reef was the very best part of our day. Everyone was great. VIP package well worth it for us. It really helped to have a private instructor for someone who was never dived before.

    The crew were amazing and very attentive to any needs. Diving the Great Barrier Reef was of course the best part of the day. Sea turtles, plethora of fish and even a school of small jellies made today and experience Ill never forget. Shinee is an incredible asset to your team! She was accommodating to any situation even when my wife's nose started bleeding. I would definitely recommend Reef Experience to anyone looking to dive the Great Barrier Reef

    AMAZING! Everyone was incredible. We had Nikki as our person today but all the guys downstairs - incredible - thank you. The best parts of the day were seeing a turtle, being looked after so well by Nikki, the vibe of the whole tour, intro dive with Nikki and the marine biology tour. We loved it and would recommend Top Deck Tour to everyone

    We couldn't recommend the Top Deck experience more highly! As a nervous beginner wanting to try an intro to scuba diving my partner was so well looked after and attended to! We also enjoyed extensive guided snorkelling, a very informative talk by a Marine Expert and delicious food and beverages all day. The cheese and fruit platters and wine on the return trip were just perfect. The top deck experience was the highlight of our holiday in Cairns. Thank you so much guys and girls and especially Niki our instructor who made Dan feel much more confident!

    We booked Reef Experience for the one on one attention! the crew were amazing, super friendly and courteous! Went above and beyond to make of our trip a truly VIP experience. They all seem to love their jobs, and it shows in the care with the customers! The entire VIP experience was exactly what we were looking for, the staff, food, and service exceeded our expectations. The second dive for the day was the best! Thanks to the entire staff, specially Michelle, for taking care of every step of the day, and making sure we had everything we needed and more! Thank you so much! the food was terrific!

    We came on Reef Experience to see the reef and cross at bucket list. The crew were fantastic! The best part of our day was learning to Scuba dive to experience the reef. Awesome trip! I will recommend it and I will do it again :)

    We loved our Top Deck experience. Michelle took great care of us with everything we needed. It was so reassuring to have a snorkel guide and Michelle pointed out lots of things of interest to us. We felt special being in the Captain's wheelhouse, with so much room to relax and be comfortable. What a wonderful day!

    My husband, son and I decided to book the Top Deck option with Reef Experiences. The beautiful Shinnie met us as we arrived and the start of our amazing day began. We were taken to the top deck of the boat where we were seated in a reserved area. We were sized up for our wetsuits etc and then presented with a large plate of fresh fruit and a delicious breakfast. As I was not diving, Shinnie organised for me to do some snorkling with another group, before she head off with my husband and son for their dive. We had a beautifully prepared and delicious lunch as well as another large plate of fruit in the afternoon. The Marine Biologist Michelle was fantastic and we were able to go snorkeling with her during the afternoon, which was amazing, As far as the staff went, they were energetic, helpful and fun, Informative and patient. Everything we hoped for. Thanks to Shinnie, McKenzie, Michelle, Skipper Jason and all the staff for an amazing day and helping us make some beautiful family memories. We will definitely be back.

    The entire crew was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable throughout the whole experience. Mackensea was super friendly and a great guide in the water! The food was exquisite, the reef was beautiful, and finally got the chance to swim with a shark. Would highly recommend this for anyone.

    The best part was trying out diving for the first time and seeing turtles from the glass bottom boat and seeing the amazing reefs. Thank you for the trip! I had a lot of fun and would love to do it again if I'm back in Cairns.

    We are very happy that we chose to do the Top Deck experience. Mike was awesome! I can't say enough great things about our time with him. All of the crew were very friendly and helpful.

    We highly recommend the TOP DECK cruise, worth every extra cent! We were welcomed with friendly smiles and fantastic meals and snacks throughout the day. The breakfast and lunch were better then ever expected. Throughout the day our personal valet Michael helped us to feel comfortable in and out of the water. As a non confident swimmer with a huge fear of sharks and deep water, I never expected to scuba dive in my life but he made me feel at ease to give it a go and I ended up purchasing the second dive at the next site, I loved it!!. Because of the Top Deck package Michael stayed with my husband and myself only under water giving us a comfortable and fantastic experience seeing fish, turtles and more. For anyone feeling nervous about experiencing the great barrier reef or wanting the best experience, The Topdeck is the only way to go.

    Wonderful day out. Picked up from our hotel, breakfast on the boat. Great motoring out for one and and a half hours then the water fun began. You can get help with snorkelling, scuba or diving for a couple of hours then lunch. Repeat for the afternoon. Almost nine hours of excellence from a warm, friendly,knowledgeable crew. Well worth the trip.

    We did the Reef experience with VIP Top Deck on the Sea Quest boat on May 21, 2018 and we highly recommend the package. We where seated in the second deck wheel house, got a full breakfast of bacon, eggs, croissants and more!! Steak and chicken for lunch with salad and rolls, Tons of fruit plates and even crackers and cheese and chocolate - all topped off with champagne for the ride back. We had our own personal instructor (Michael) who was very hands on for the beginner scuba experience - made is so fun and easy. We also got to snorkel at the second location with Michael as our private guide explaining what we where seeing and answering all our questions. He even towed us around when it got choppy. I would HIGHLY recommend the VIP Top Deck package and the Reef Experience charter service - from the biologist to the photographers to the many helpful staff members in and out of the water. We went in to the adventure a little intimidated by the ocean - we came out big fans!!! Absolutely beautiful way to experience the Great Barrier Reef. Five star service!!!
