Our scheduled tour was cancelled (without notice) due to a boat breaking down the day before, so we were literally going from tour group to tour group. Most of them were booked... read more

We booked the Outer Great Barrier Reef tour. One of the best tours that we have taken so far. The guides were amazing and extremely helpful! If you're beginners in snorkeling I would highly recommend to take the guided snorkeling tour. Our guide was amazing and made me feel so comfortable. My daughter did Scuba doo and that was her...

We went to Great Barrier Reef with Great Adventures on 10 Jan and had a great time. It's not surprising people who go to Great Barrier Reef would have a great experience seeing the beautiful corals and amazing tropical fish. What the company impressed me is the services provided by them and their sub contractors. My son had a medical... More

Our scheduled tour was cancelled (without notice) due to a boat breaking down the day before, so we were literally going from tour group to tour group. Most of them were booked for days & we only had a couple of days left. Great Adventures was able to get us on a boat that left 5 minutes after we booked... More

Took young children snorkeling on Green Island. First time with Great Adventure package, what a difference....far quicker trip, better hire gear, better access to beach and pool on island. All round enjoyable day. Calm waters make it easy for the novice snorkeler, we were treated with finding both Memo and Dory!

We went to the reef for the outer reef tour. It was an amazing experience. The reef was amazingly beautiful and the money spent was completely worth it. The food was sub-par, but not the reason we went on the trip in the first place. We got on the boat from Green Island in the morning so it was only... More

We were told that Green Inland was a good day trip, but we felt that days was spoil by staff not doing the jobs correctly. The trip over was nice, but when we got to green inland we felt let down we the lack of information provided, so we had to winged it. First sign of trouble was when a... More

This review is in reference to the Green Island Day trip. We chose to do Green Island snorkeling as we have kids 10 & 7 that we wanted to get used to snorkeling in calmer Waters as a starting point. The booking process was very simple and staff were helpful and friendly. The cruise to the Island and back was... More

This was going to be our highlight for the once in a lifetime trip to Australia and we were worried that we won't be able to accomplish it with our five year old in tow. However this amazing cruise company made it possible! The staff is very nice and this is the only company that offers scuba-doo underwater scooters that... More

It is surreal to see all the myriad of colourful fish and the vibrant coral colours. The boat crew tell you what to look for and we liked the idea of using a wet suit for better insulation even though the ocean is quite warm. Nice lunch on the boat too.
