"I booked this with my wife for our honeymoon and I would highly recommend it. We booked the gold class lounge which was extra but included personal service and additional comforts. It was a great experience! Everyone was friendly and it was the highlight of the honeymoon. We did two introductory scuba tours and again, I cannot say enough one of the highlights of my life and was well run from the second we got on the boat to when we got off."

"Just want to say a huge thank you to everyone for today. We booked the Gold Class Experience and couldn't be happier with how the day went. From the moment that we were picked up by Aaron from our hotel in the luxury car, to then be greeted by Eddie once we arrived at the dock, and then once on-board, looked after by Emily for the day. Everyone in the crew were amazing and couldn't have looked after us better. The room was awesome, lunch was delicious and the Reefs were simply breathtaking. A magnificent way to spend our last day in Cairns. Thank you again so much for making our day so memorable, and we can't wait to come back and do it again soon."
