I enjoyed the cruise so much. The staff are funny, friendly, and knowledgeable. Even when I called them just to make sure I was at the right place. The reef was beautiful, both from below and above. Snorkeling gave me a closer look of the reef and its life forms. The scenic flights gave me a beautiful overview of the reef, the ship, and the ocean. Just not really satisfied with the lunch, could be better. But overall, good trip!

We had a great day ! The ferry ride to the Norman Reef was fun (we grabbed seats at the open deck on the top level ) Diving was fun, great reef, variety of fishes and some turtles too. There was lunch at the deck. The helicopter ride was really enjoyable as it gives you realize the vastness of the reef. Buying photograph is expensive (~20 aid per photo ) so carry your own go-pro camera if you have it.

The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and fun. The whole day was seamless with their organisation of the various activities. A spectacular part of the world to explore. Go and see the Reef and see it with Downunder!

Amazing, the best trip I have been on. Staff are all really nice and friendly, good jokes knocking around. Felt very safe at all times and well catered for. Food was lovely and lots of variety. The waterproof phone case was definitely worth buying, managed to get amazing pictures and videos of the reef to send to my family and to keep. Helicopter ride was great, seeing the reef from above is just as good as seeing it from below. Truly amazing trip and experience, would do it all over again!

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the places that I've promised myself to go to since I was young. Experiencing the Great Barrier Reef Cruise on a Scenic Helicopter Flight was the most eye-catching event of my entire life. It was really unforgettable because seeing the Great Barrier Reef from up above made it so different and unique from what you can see on a cruise. The reef was spectacular and amazing! I also did an introductory dive and did something I thought I wouldn't do. I thought I will never dive because it is very scary but being with a buddy made everything so much easier. I highly recommend this tour as this package is worth the price!
