A FAST, FUN EXCITING BOAT RIDE JUST 15 MIN TO THE LOW ISLES REEF! Then one and a half hours of spectacular snorkelling in shallow protected water, followed by the 15 minute boat ride back. All up, this is a 2 and a quarter hour reef trip that will give you half a day to do something else and you won't get sea sick!

This is the best way to see the Great Barrier Reef. You're out to the most stunning part of the truly alive, outer reef and back in a morning. The boat is great and the ride is exhilarating but not uncomfortable. Having done green island...More

Good people. Great boats. Small crowd, faster than the rest. Outer reef was Tongue reef. We were the only boat. 15 of us.

Extremely disappointed with this tour - our guide did not provide any education and the coral was mostly dead (grey and fuzzy). This also takes you to the "low isles" which is outside of the great barrier reef. Definitely recommend going with a full-day, authentic...More

We did the low isles with 5 children ranging in ages from 8-14. The benefit is the beach that you can swim right off - especially if she is nervous of the ocean. This is one of their offerings and I would throughly recommend... More

Sorry I only just saw your message. You can change into bathers in the toilets at the marina before you put your wetsuits on. Didn't really need snacks - quick boat trips each way and the rest of the time in the water. Maybe... More

Not sure but we travelled in April and it was amazing. Crystal clear waters, and the reef was very vibrant
