Took the day trip to Hastings Reef and Michaelmas Cay with Sea Star. It was a perfect trip for a group with varying interests and abilities. I took the trip with my partner and my parents. My g/f likes to snorkel, my parents were first time snorkelers and I am a certified diver. The crew was excellent. They were a very young and fun crew, but were also extremely professional.
Ellen the dive master was wonderful. Very good guided dives and was just the right amount of cautious with you. All their equipment was top notch, and she helped to set everything up for you, which was a huge help for those with no experience setting up equipment on a moving boat.
The food for lunch was also very good. Chicken wings and salads with veggie-bake.
All in all, if you are looking for a nice day out on the reef... Sea Star is head and shoulders above the rest.More
