My husband and I were on vacation. We wanted to see the Great Barrier Reef. Jenny and Mike (RM Cruises) took us snuba diving. The ocean was very rough but they gave us the confidence to really enjoy ourselves. I'm glad we wore wet suits.

Great value, and no hassle. It is what it is... a boat with 100 people to swim around the same reef area. For visiting family who wanted to ‘experience the Great Barrier Reef’ but are not overly adventurous it was perfect. We have done it...More

I think it depends on the season. We were there at end of June and plenty of room onboard as well as in the water when we got to the reef area
