I chose Seastar for my solo snorkel trip in Cairns because of the amazing reviews on Tripadvisor, and it did not disappoint!!! The team was incredible...so knowledgeable, helpful, funny, and energetic! Since it was my first time snorkelling, I didn't know what to expect, but the team made it so fun and comfortable. The boat was very clean and comfortable, with areas to relax out on in the sun. The two locations were great-a bit different from each other, so I felt like I saw a good amount! We also had a reef talk to learn about the reef after lunch, which was very helpful. Again, the staff is very knowledgeable about the reef and all of the creatures that live within it. The tour guides also took us out for the first 20 min or so at each spot to show us the main attractions (turtles, clown fish, giant clams, etc).
The lunch was surprising delicious! After a morning swimming around, the food completely hit the spot and surpassed my expectations of what I thought the lunch would entail.
Finally, what makes Seastar unique is the number of people on-board. They only take about 35 people, which is the perfect size! I got to know a good number of people without bumping into them that much on the reef. I honestly couldn't imagine going out with more people.
Overall, this was one of the best days I've ever had...all thanks to Seastar! Thank you thank you thank you! I'll definitely be back!
