Spent the day with Reef Daytripper and cannot recommend them highly enough. The day was superbly organised with snorkelling in 2 excellent locations and trial dives for those that were interested. The team were professional, enthusiastic and above all caring for their guests. The briefings were clear and uncomplicated and the guided tour of the reef was a major plus.... More

We picked the Daytripper to have a sail with our dive but unfortunately that day was very calm so we had to motor in and out. Nevertheless, we had a great time. The small boat meant a very low passenger to crew ratio. Our dives were 2 people with the guide. The crew was fun and attentive. Overall a great... More

We are so happy that we chose this experience instead of the big island trip that several passengers on our cruise had done. We only had 9 people ( they take 20 max) and so much personal attention from the crew of 3. There is plenty of sun or shade on the trip out to the reef and they gave... More

Had a fantastic day out with Paul and his gang. Went for two scuba dives where we saw the beautiful Reef, a turtle, sharks, sting rays and all kinds of fish. Paul took his time to explain all diving procedures slowly and clearly which was great. There was more than enough food and the fruit finished off the day nicely.... More

There are so many snorkelling reef tour companies out at Cairns and it can be really hard to choose which one is best. I can't recommend these guys enough! Such a great crew who have a fantastic sense of humour, knowledge of the Reef, and help to anyone who needs it. Only a max of about 20 guests at a... More

I usually check reviews to decide our next adventure and I am so glad I did with this one. Although the water was a bit choppy, the crew were fabulous and they made the day trip great. If you want individual attention, this is the trip for you. Owner/captain and the two staff on board were very kind and helped... More

This was a good value and fun day to experience the Reef. We had a fun and well qualified crew. The boat was in great shape. Lunch, wine, fruit and cheese and crackers were all done nicely and really hit the spot during the day out. Both spots provided a wonderful snorkel experience but the second stop had enough current... More

We did a snorkel trip with Reef Daytripper and had an exceptional day at a really reasonable price, especially compared to the large companies. We were part of a group of 14 (max group size is 20 with them) of mixed nationalities and they took time to ensure everyone understood the safety briefs and was comfortable before getting in the...
