We took the half day tour (11-4) to Hastings Reef. The boat was fast and got us to the reef in less than an hour. We then had three hours to snorkel and take a short ride on a glass bottom boat. There were many positives to this tour:
- The views at the reef were amazing!
- Everyone working on the boat was super knowledgeable and really cared about people having a good experience
- The equipment was all top notch quality and they seemed to have sizes for everyone
- The boat was fast and bumpy at times. We received warning and had seat belts. My husband tends to get sea sick and had no problems on the boat.
- The glass bottom boat trip was fun and informative.
- They take photos in the water and on the boat. The crew posts them to Facebook every day. You can then tag yourself. It was great to see photos after the event with no extra charge. If I would have understood that I would have posed in the water!
- Price was super reasonable

They have complimentary coffee, tea and cookies on the boat. We brought lunch with us and had time to eat on board.

I'd highly recommend this organization for a half-day reef tour! It was one of the highlights of our trip to Australia!

The boat was fast and got to the destination in less than an hour. The boat accommodated around 30 people that consisted of about 10 scuba divers and the rest snorkelers. The snorkelers broke off into 2 separate guided tours for about 45 minutes. Had an hour of free time to snorkel after the guided tour, if you wished. The coral and fish were beautiful. Staff was friendly and technically proficient.

Amazing day with Skeddadle,our 13 yo daughter gets severe travel sickness & to be able to go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef without her getting sick was wonderful. The crew are lovely & nothing is too much trouble. Would highly recommend Skeddadle ❤️

Dear Corey,
The jet boat is the ideal boat for people who tend to get seasick. We are super happy to hear your daughter felt alright and all of you had a good time.
Thank you again for travelling with us,
