We got to snorkel two reefs on an all day boating adventure. My husband does not swim but they gave him a lifevest and a personal guide pulling a life preserver in the water. He also rented a goggle with a stronger lense to be able to see everything under water a bit better.

If you want the top notch experience, make sure that you do Rainforeststation (not to be confused with just Kuranda). I also thought Top Deck was truly worth it. I would skip Daintree if doing Rainforeststation in Kuranda. Two days would have been just fine for me. March is not

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our area and that you enjoyed your tours. There are multiple options to upgrade your tour packages and the Top Deck upgrade is a great way to add value to your reef tour and certainly upgrading to include Rainforestation adds a lot of extra inclusions in your day. We appreciate your feedback. Regards, Jenny
