Just a few days before this cruise, my girlfriend and I took a cruise to the Franklands. On that cruise, I began to think.., "so this is the Great Barrier Reef? I don't know what all the fuss is about!" But we stuck with the snorkeling plan, and went on SeaStar the next time. Now I get it! Through Seastar, the reef was an entirely different place!
First, the boat was not overly crowded and the staff was very friendly. They did not nickle and dime us with hidden charges, and the food/tea was excellent. Second, they took us to reefs that were vibrant, alive and colorful. Third, they got us out there before the other boats arrived.
I loved swimming over the shallow sections of the reef, watching the teeming fish schools just inches below me. And just when I was thinking it could not get better, I swam over a nice break in the reef, which felt like flying off a cliff and over a fabulous gorge!
We fully recommend this trip! Great people, good food, amazing reefs!
