Wonderful snorkel adventure with experienced team

Very smooth day out on the water! Crew knew exactly what they were doing and very personable. We did snorkeling only and we saw everything we could have wanted to see. One of the perks of the experience was that they had a LOVELY professional underwater photographer who captured some amazing images of us. Very unique and will be special memories that we will treasure. Thanks again :)

Fantastic Experience

The wife & I had a great day! Nice trip out to the reef, food and drinks provided. Thank you for to James & Alex who pulled us along whilst snorkelling at both sites, both very knowledgeable and we are both glad we came along. A bit nervous for both of us to begin with as we hadn’t snorkelled in well over 10 years but very happy we did it, they are memories that will last a lifetime. The only downfall was that I didn’t hire an underwater camera but that’s on me. Next time we come back to cairns we will do the trip again, cheers Aqua Quest!
