    Thankyou to all the fantastic staff on Great Adventures, for an awesome day out to the Reef! Everyone was super friendly, helpful and worked together well, as a team! The boat was very clean, including the toilets. My daughter went on her first dive as a newly certified PADI diver. The Dive Master, Satoshi, was the consummate professional and ensured her safety at all times. The highlight for my daughter was diving with Wally, the Maori Wrasse. The photographer captured their interaction perfectly... in fact, the photographer took so many great photos, it took all our will power not to buy them all!!!

    "Good day"
    Good facilities Good boat Convenient Good photography Good staff Bit too crowded and commercialised The life guard was careful and friendly. Our kids have lots of fun and support. They have their own pontoon and platform for helicopters. We flew in by helicopter and got back on the boat. The boat was big and steady. Good to avoid seasickness.

    "Outer Reef Snorkeling Adventure"
    I recently did the Great Adventures outer reef pontoon trip. I love to snorkel and had a wonderful time on this trip. The pontoon on Norman's Reef was well situated and had everything you could need for the day. The day included access to an underwater observatory, a trip on the semi-submersible and a buffet lunch. There was plenty of fish and coral to see in the semi sub and when snorkelling. Awesome day.
