I booked a holiday from Sydney to Cairns as a surprise 21st present for a friend. As a young traveller I booked through a website called BookMe and after reading fantastic reviews about this tour and a bargain of a price I booked without hesitation. A week before arriving, I received a phone call claiming we'd booked under children's tickets... More

This is slightly delayed but thank you 'Capitan' Doug and crew for the amazing reef trip. This tour featured a small group, a knowledgeable captain telling many stories, lots of food and treats, and a beautiful reef seemingly untouched by bleaching! This was the highlight of our Cairns trip and we will definitely go with the Falla again should we... More

Having arrived in Cairns in monsoon-like rain, we weren't sure the trip would be running. Captain Doug assured us that they would run and we had an excellent experience! We had a tiny bit of rain on the reef and the sun came out as we made our way back to the marina. Beyond the beauty of the reef itself,... More

I can't recommend this boat trip more highly. I've been on at least 50 snorkeling trips in various parts of the world, and the Falla tops them all. We had a really small group and received excellent service. Tons of yummy snacks, lunch, and wine and cheese. There were no other boats in sight so we had the goregous reefs... More

A great day's snorkelling on an authentic pearl lugger boat. The small party of only 12 guests meant that we had a very personalised tour. The crew were great and catered for the individual needs of the guests in a very attentive manner. Capitan Doug gave some interesting talks about the reef and the history of the boat. We visited...

Captain Doug is a very passionated and knowledgable guy who really respects the delicate nature of the reef. The Falla has a great story which Doug happily shares. Great snorkeling - and for those who chooses it, scuba diving is also a possibility. A great experience! I will definetely recommend this tour to everybody.

Great trip - if I have the chance to visit the area I will take the trip again. I cannot compare to the other ships as this was the one I took but very good and nice people on the ship
