The overall experience with the outer great barrier reef cruise was excellent
Ramachandran 7 months ago

The overall experience with the outer great barrier reef cruise was excellent. The crew members were excellent in ensuring all the passengers on board were taken care of. The minute you hop onto the cruise boat you were in good steady hands. They ensured you have taken your sea sickness pills and constantly checking to your needs and offering help immediately when someone falls seasick. All crew members on board displayed excellent customer service and answered all your queries professionally. On board, the pontoon at Hardy's reef was well coordinated and safety of the guests was always the top priority demonstrated. My family truly enjoyed this trip. Strongly recommended.

The 2-hour boat ride at 8 am to Hardy's Lagoon and Reefworld Pontoon was relatively smooth sailing
Paul Yeo 2 years ago

The 2-hour boat ride at 8 am to Hardy's Lagoon and Reefworld Pontoon was relatively smooth sailing. We snorkelled and saw plenty of sea life. It was high tide on the day so we were a bit high up from the coral and the currents in the water were pretty strong but the reef is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We managed to spot a turtle during our viewing in the semi-submersible boat. The lunch spread was quite good with prawns, salad dishes and a range of meat. There is also an underwater observatory although there wasn't much to view after snorkelling and taking the boat ride. 5 hours out on the pontoon also gives you time to sunbake but recliner seats are limited so make sure you grab a spot early during the day! All in all, it is a must-see during your stay at the Whitsundays.

Crews are very friendly
Songzhe 3 years ago

Crews are very friendly, warming and have great patience. Sailing took 3 hours, but not bored. Having good safety controls. Scenes are all amazing. It is definitely a lifetime experience. Strongly recommended. A must do activity. The buffet lunch is also fantastic, much local seafood. Only thing need to complaint is slight sea sick for many people. Recommend brings some medicine.

Awesome dive

Awesome dive! Amazing crew... Loved it!

Money well spent
Shaun Borg 4 years ago

Money well spent. Excellent well organised day, onboard extra activities are all a reasonable and affordable. Enough food to feed double the people. Large snorkel area that took the entire allocated time to explore. Safety of people in the water was excellent with two staff constantly patrolling in inflatable boats.

While the islands of the Great Barrier Reef are beautiful, nothing can compare to the Outer Reef; while you'll spend a bit more travel time, the beauty of the outer regions are truly spectacular!
