Best trip you’ll take on the reef
Mark_T

Amazing is how I would describe our trip to the reef with the crew of passions of paradise. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable, they were happy to answer questions and have a chat. The lunch was delicious and there was heaps of food for everyone kudos to the chef. The sites we were taken to were beautiful, so many fish and colourful coral, I was hoping to see a turtle 🙁 but I did get to see sharks ✅. Even the music on board was awesome it made our day so chill and relaxed. We took Erin’s advice and grabbed some sea sick tablets even though none of us get sea sick, we were all good, some people didn’t take the advice 🤢. I couldn’t recommend this family business enough, you can see the staff love what they do and they’re really good at it, definitely 10/10 for this trip.

Amazing crew, amazing boat, amazing food!

The crew were all great which really elevated the experience on the day. It wasn't just about swimming in the reef, the crew made the 2 hour trip there and back exciting and engaging as well. The food was great, and they were really accommodating offering guided tours round the reef with crewmbers for anyone who isn't strong swimmer. They even had prescription goggles for those who wear glasses like myself, which made the experience even better! Would highly recommend this crew to anyone who wants to get out on the reef and have an amazing time!

You could not ask for any better for you reef snorkelling/diving adventure
Simon_I

The staff are all amazingly friendly and they genuinely care to ensure you have a great day out and get to really enjoy experiencing the reef for yourself. We could tell the crew were not just ‘working a job’ but rather living out their mission of sharing the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef with people. We have two young daughters and the crew went out of their way to ensure they got to experience the reef as well - the helped them into their wetsuit, fitted their goggles, fitted floaties around their waste and then pulled them both behind them on a rope and buoy over the reef so they could experience snorkelling and seeing the reef without getting too tired. The food was also fantastic. When you first set off, you are treated to tea/coffee and fresh fruit. Lunch is a delicious assortment of healthy cuisine - lamb or vegetable curry, rice with vegetables, salad, potato salad, pasta salad etc, and then afternoon tea is chocolate delights with tea/coffee again.

The friendliness of all crew members and the atmosphere created made for such a great day. The 2 reefs we visited were great and we were given ample amount of time to explore these

Snorkeling and crew at the cruise was great but need to improve the breakfast and lunch menu.
Tandin_Y

Everything was great, except the food. Who serves fresh fruits with tea/coffee? When we booked it was written muffin and sandwich but we got fruits. Moreover, in the evening there was shortage of cakes and we didn’t get it. Lunch wasn’t good as well. It wasn’t as expected, it would have been great if there had been at least 2 non veg curries.

The crew were great and they couldn't do enough for us. My wife is not a very good swimmer and they helped her in the water
