    Lovely beach to snorkel from
    Excellent buffet lunch
    Only drawback was crew were not as approachable or as friendly as on other trips. Nonetheless a great day.

    The perfect way to get out to the Reef!!! It was much less crowded where we were than where the fast boats all go -- allowed for better viewing and a more relaxing day!

    Fantastic snorkeling right off the beach, great glass-bottom boat tour and hiking. Fantastic lunch, too. Worth a second trip. We even saw a shark!

    Absolutely perfect day! I was definitely out of my comfort zone, but the folks on this tour made me feel at ease. Nice facilities on the boat and a great staff.

    A very pleasant day spent aboard a well appointed, beautiful boat. The glass bottomed boat tour was excellent - Troy was very knowledgeable and we say turtles and giant clams in addition to the corals. The Low Isles are just beautiful and it was a fantastic experience!

    Excellent. The Low Isles has the best coral garden I have seen anywhere in the world and you walk to it direct from the beach. A great ride out on the boat with the sails up.

    Great and very knowledgeable staff; friendly and helpful. The glass bottom viewing boat was rather disappointing because we were expecting it ot be thw one, or similar, as shown in the advert photos and was the reason we selected this specific tour. Dispite that, it was a nice day!

    Excellent tour!!!

    This was an excellent tour, much better than the Outer Reef tour that I had done a few days before.
    It helped that it was a beautiful day and that there weren't many of us on it.
    John, the marine biologist, was very helpful with his instruction .
    Snorkeling over the reef was absolutely amazing, I couldn't believe the beautiful live
    coral I saw as well as many angel and clown fish and others.
    The glass bottom boat and the island tour were great.
    This tour was the highlight of my visit in Australia.
