The staff were friendly, great dive master. Food was good for being out on the reef. I thought the driving was a bit aggressive and faster than necessary. They have a good system down to handle snorklers vs divers.

This was my third time diving with these guys and they are great. This time I was alone. A slightly smaller vessel than the big Quicksilver catamarans, but still large enough and not very crowded. They divided us nicely according to ability: course takers, beginners,...More

Everything you want your trip to the GBR to be, plus the crew were outstanding. Crew members were impressively knowledgable and were always looking to help you out - yet somehow kept the vibe chilled. Loved it all.

A very good trip out to three reefs. Safety was clearly paramount. Good briefing and the food was fabulous. Highly highly recommended.

Hi there, Planning a trip to the GBR at the end of this month. We are a family of 4 with different swimming/water confidence levels. We have a 4 yo and an 8yo. The 4 yo is very confident in the water but not able to swim on his own. Would he be ok to snorkel and is there anything for him to do in the boat if he decides he does not want to snorkel? Thanks.

We had roughly 30 on board. Plenty of room for all. Lunch was served and very good. This was a "Bucket list" trip and did not disappoint. Well worth the cost. I would do it again.

Do you also leave from Cairns?

Response from QSGA | Property representative |
Hi Janet, Poseidon only operates out of Port Douglas. If you want to leave out of Cairns we can recommend Silverswift. While it goes to a different part of the reef, it offers a similar experience.
