Better than promised! Great snorkelling and excursions. Worth the day out.

After the challenge to get over the Sandbar, the trip out to Lady Musgrave was fairly rough, and we had a few a barfers on the boat. Thankfully, the crew were well-prepped, as were the passengers :) Food and drinks were great throughout the trip. No shortage, or lack of variety, and everyone was well satisfied. Snorkelling equipment was all in tip-top condition, and there was an appropriate set for all sizes. As always, the snorkelling was the highlight, but the glass bottom boat and island walk were good too, and the tour guides were superb. Definitely worth the money and time to get to the island and back.

Perfect weather for the trip at Great Barrier Reef!

It’s a really amazing trip! Nice weather! The crews were fantastic and were so caring to anyone who became sea sick because it was a bit rough sea day in the morning time. The tour guide was very informative and led a walk around the island noting some of the birds and plants. Glass bottom boat tour was excellent, we can clearly see sea turtles and loads of fish. We had a fun time for reef snorkelling. Would definitely recommend.
