Please note, all scuba divers must complete a dive medical questionnaire aboard the boat. Some illnesses such as asthma may preclude you from scuba diving. Please phone to discuss if you have concerns
  • Do you provide all of the dive and snorkel equipment - Yes, everything. Even dive computers for the certified divers!
  • What if I get seasick - If you are prone to seasickness, it is advisable to take something before you go. Check with a chemist. As Passions is a catamaran, it is a lot more stable in rough weather than monohulls and the sails act as a stabiliser. We do sell sea sickness pills on board the boat, but please remember, tablets are a preventative, not a cure, so take them just before we depart.

Fantastic staff who will ensure your safety and take charge of your Great Barrier Reef adventure so that you make the most out of your trip. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't the best and the team took extra care of all the passengers. Will definitely book with them again once we visit Cairns again.
Amazing Crew, nice cameraman. Will definitely book again.

Amazing experience on an amazing boat with a great crew! The crew were fantastic and very friendly, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea were all provided, lunch was delicious. The reef was absolutely amazing another world under the water and so relaxing.

We loved to sail to the outer reef with the Pattion of Paradise
Alisa Krejci 2 years ago

We loved to sail to the outer reef with the Pattion of Paradise. Such a great experience. Crew on board is very knowledgeable and super friendly. Food you get is plentiful and delicious. Their catamaran is a beautiful, modern and spacious vessel. Would definitely recommend to anybody who’s looking for a great experience.

Staff were great
Alicia 3 years ago

Staff were great, unfortunately, the weather wasn't great on the day we went out and it was raining. Otherwise would have been a perfect day with excited and friendly staff.

This trip was wonderful
Allison 3 years ago

This trip was wonderful! At first I was unsure of what company to go with since there are so many that take trips to the Great Barrier Reef, but I'm glad I went with Passions of Paradise! The boat was a bit rocky and it would've been nice to have air conditioning, but everything else about the day was excellent, including the lunch and staff. Darcy was a great snorkel tour guide!

Girlfriend and myself went on the Passions of Paradise trip going to 2 locations
Thomas 4 years ago

Girlfriend and myself went on the Passions of Paradise trip going to 2 locations. Paradise Reef and Michaelmas Cay both are incredible locations for marine life. It's absolutely breathtaking. Comes with coffee and tea in the morning and after the 2nd dive. Lunch has a ton of options and is of good quality. Crew was friendly and extremely informative. Would 100% recommend!

Definitely a worthwhile cruise into the breathtaking waters of the Great Barrier Reef
Cheah 5 years ago

Definitely a worthwhile cruise into the breathtaking waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Had the opportunity (and courage) to sign up for a dive (despite not being able to swim or float myself) but I enjoyed my time in the waters anyways despite being seasick on the way to the diving site. The diving instructor was very friendly and encouraging which helped me overcome my fear of being in the raging waters. Will definitely go back to Cairns for another dive because this experience was totally worth it!

Passions of Paradise
Richelle 6 years ago

Passions of Paradise, the cruise ship that took me for this tour, is one of the best there is! Although it's a minority (I supposed) but the quality of customer service they provide on board is something to be admired and replicated by majority. The crews interact with their customers genuinely and see to it that the experience is great and being enjoyed by all. I would love to do my future tours with them and Im recommending the company to my friends as well. Kepp it up, Passions of Paradise.

Take advantage of the FREE guided snorkelling tour! You will learn all about the reef and abundant marine life from a qualified and informative guide.
