I could not speak highly enough of this trip. Right from the start the crew set the tone by being friendly,approachable and professional. I was really impressed by their emphasis on safety. As a weak swimmer the crew reassured me that this was not a problem as they have guided snorkel tours. The crew that brought me out snorkling were... More

The crew created a great atmosphere and made me feel very safe above and below the water. Can't say enough good things about my trip highly recommend and I will be going... More

POP made my Cairns trip. 100%. The staff, especially Nick, were AWESOME. Beyond helpful, friendly, funny, and you could tell that they all actually liked their jobs. Really nice to see. They had a marine biologist on board to talk about the different species we'd see during our dives which was interesting. Our lunch was really really wonderful, 5 salads,... More

My first Dive and I was nervous but knew I wanted to try it and what better place than Great Barrier Reef? The crew were total pros and Russell and Leon my instructors were very good and calming. Loved it so much and opted for the 2nd Dive so worth $45 to see one of the most amazing places I've... More

Right from the start of the day these guys were true ambassadors of the Reef and passed on the joy of living in North Queensland. The Crew were entertaining, caring, unobtrusive yet very professional. My 9 year old daughter was made welcome, encouraged and included in the days adventure. The Boat is truly amazing as was the buffet lunch (more... More

Great and very helpful staff. Nice diving with a very nice diving master and good snorkeling. We were diving with another 3 people only because they got bad weather the week before and they couldn't dive then but otherwise we would have been only two divers with the master. Thank you for a great day.

We really enjoyed our trip to the outer Reef with passions of paradise. The crew was awesome and the snorkelling was the best.

We really debated what Reef boat to pick and are so glad we picked Passions. Passions III is only 4 weeks old ad it is a beautiful boat. We loved that our trip would involve some sailing . Give yourself lots of time to get to the Cairns wharf - we were almost late and almost missed the boat. We... More

The boat was very nice and clean. Mainly less crowdy, so that everyone get attention. All their equipment looked good in condition. We did scuba diving and the trainers are more knowledgeable and explained us and pre trained us in a very professional way. The team itself was very energetic. Took us to 2 places for diving and stopped at... More
