I did the Green island and great Barrier Reef day tour on june 4 I would like to rate Great Adventures a five star tour company. I had a absolutely fabulous experience. To start with the check in was smooth I am wondering why I didn't just book directly with them, will certainly remember this next time. The boarding was great very well guided they do have a lot of crew herding u through to a very comfortable catamaran. They start with free tea and coffee for welcoming along with ginger tablets for motion sickies. They recommended two for me. The safety procedures were through. The guidelines for safety are explained to each passenger. Five star service, very easy to talk to crew. They explained clearly what to expect in green island and what to look out for. They also cam around to each one explaining the potential options available at green island and the Great Barrier Reef. The morning and afternoon teas were very delicious. They not only provide snorkelling gear, they also provide free Lycra suits and safety jackets. They provide very caring treatment to non swimmers. I just cannot fault these guys. The lunch was delicious andfor all meal preferences and size. They also made announcements in different languages.

One of the best tours I have done, staff were amazing food was great. Well organised and run

Top tips

"Snorkelling at both Green Island and the Outer Reef are totally different experiences with different fish and coral species. Make sure you jump in the water with your snorkel and see the differences for yourself."
