We had a great day on the reef with Seastar! They are a small group tour - only 36 on our boat- and at both snorkeling sites we were the only ones there while snorkeling which meant a really good chance to see the reef. They also took us on a 1/2 hour snorkel tour at both sites with lots of info about what we were seeing. The staff were great - friendly and with lots of knowledge about the reef and its inhabitants. My teenagers had a great time!

A huge thank you to Captain Jimmy & crew for a fabulous tour out to the reef. Very professional staff, great food and lots of fun. Even though we are novice at snorkelling Peter and I felt very safe and able to enjoy the beautiful GBR. Special thanks to Vlad for his patience & care. Highly recommend this tour group.

My family of 4, including my two kids aged 7 and 10 had an absolutely amazing time, and we will forever cherish these memories. It was also also the first time our kids snorkled. We would definitely recommend Seastar to our fiends and family without hesitation. Only downside was my wife getting sea sick, however she is very susceptible to seasickness, even after tacking tablets...and the staff were extremely accommodating in this situation.

Highlights Included:
- Friendly, helpful, humorous and energised crew
- Delicious and plentiful buffet lunch
- Educational
- Heaps of snorkle time
- Excellent gear (inc snorkels, wetsuits, sizes)
- Two great locations on the Great Barrier Reef
- Comfortable double decker boat, with plenty of room (we had a full boat of 36)
- Enjoyable scuba dive experience, very safe
- Amazing snorkle experience (we saw an abundance of marine life)
- Glass boat tour

Value: 10/10
Overall experience: 10/10

You will not be disappointed! We went out on the Saturday of the long weekend, and were worried how the cruise would go as the weather wasnt the best. But as soon as we got there we felt so welcomed! Nice boat, great super friendly staff, muffins and coffee when we arrived. Safety No.1 on their list! also everyone given a number for the day, marked off constantly to make sure everyone ok and back on board! We had some non swimmers, and the way the crew looked after them was outstanding! Once out on the reef the weather was a lot better We had James as our snorkelling guide and he was so knowledgable and such a nice guy! We saw giant clams, turtles and colourful reef. The wetsuits and equipment in perfect condition. The lunch was varied and very tasty! If we were to come again we would definitely choose Seastar! Thanks for a great day!

I went on this boat trip based on the reviews and they were not wrong. The crew was professional, kind, and helpful. I requested a vegan lunch and it was quite tasty. The areas the took us to snorkel were breathtaking. Wow!! It was like swimming in an aquarium! It was a memorable day with memories that will last a lifetime ❤️
