Sensational day at Milln Reef snorkeling. We left from Cairns, staff were friendly and helpful. My hubby and I have mild asthma, and our friend travelling with us has had by pass surgery, so we had our own tour guide in the water, with another couple. The gorgeous Ariel showed us all the good spots, and had 2 buoys, if we needed a rest, or a tow. Darcy gave us the pre snorkel talk, and I have not had my goggles fit so well, and not leak, after many years of snorkeling. Captain was full of info too, and runs a great crew. Highly recommend Passions.

Friendly and professional from start to finish. We would highly recommend this company to anyone. My wife and children went down with sea sickness on the way out and it didn’t matter which staff member it was, they all made themselves readily available for assistance even though they had a lot of preparation to do for the day ahead. The spot they chose to take us to for snorkeling was absolutely breath taking and it was just a matter of jumping in and going exploring. They kitted out the kids with floatation devices too. Lunch was magnificent, a collection of salads and a few hot meals to prepare you for the next location of snorkeling. We didn’t just have a good day, it’s the little things that make a company great, we noticed simon getting around and speaking with customers on the trip home, jake was very hands on with people coming in and out of the water and i can’t remember the all names but all staff did more than their job required. Even the skipper came down for a chat! Please support companies like this through the pandemic to make sure they are still around when it’s all over!

This was a fantastic experience. We chose this cruise because it was locally owned and operated, and a smaller boat ie: less people. Staff were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Doing the introductory dive is a must, we were not disappointed. Our sons even backed up for a second dive. The food was delicious, especially our afternoon treat of homemade cappuccino fudge. Would have liked to back up and do a second cruise but the weather wouldn't play along.
