    "Absolute Brilliant Tour"
    Went with Passions after reading the reviews and was certainly not disappointed. The staff are lovely and took time to go around everyone to chat and learn names. The two stops we went to were excellent no complaints at all! Those who went diving got a full debrief whereas the snorkellers were given the chance of solo or with a member of staff as a snorkel guide. The staff were even kind enough to go deeper under to take close up pictures of turtles for those who werent as confident. Very safe, always double checking everyone was back on board before moving on. Also the option of a glass bottom boat tour which was good for those not confident/unable to go in the water - the staff were excellent in looking after my mum on this tour and on the boat whilst everyone else went exploring. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.

    "Bucket list trip to the GBR"
    Loved this snorkeling trip. Long cruise to the snorkel location went by quickly with beautiful views, even flying fish skipping around the bow. Fitted with gear on the way so as soon as we arrived at the reef we could hop in and start swimming. In incredible profusion of beautiful sea creatures and coral. Loved it. Food and amenities excellent too. Highly recommend.

    "Amazing Great Barrier Reef Tour!"
    Outstanding! The snorkeling was amazing! I went in Jessie's group at the first location. It was a rough day due to the storm however Jessie was still able to show us lots of animals and coral and was extremely informative telling us all about each thing we saw. My husband went diving and had a great time as well with his group. Lunch is scratch made and was delicious! I have lots of food allergies so they had the chef talk with me when we arrived. He then prepared a separate meal for me taking into account all of the random ingredients I'm unable to eat. He prepared a separate chicken and rice dish along with three other salads just for me! Way beyond anything I had ever expected! The second location included the glass bottom boat ride which was super cool to see everything while learning about what we saw and history of the Reef. We also got some beach time on the island and the snorkeling was unbelievable. My husband was able to get some great pictures with our GoPro. On the way back, Nick and Kieran gave an optional discussion about the Reef, it's current situation and more information about what we had seen. Inga was super fun to talk with and did a fabulous job! We opted for the motion sickness pills at the beginning which was a good choice give the storm and rough water on the way out. The way back was sunny and warm so we sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. I highly recommend Passions of Paradise!
