Amazing. The crew was very helpful, snorkeling was fantastic because the crew gave you the freedom of where you wanted to swim. Lunch was great also. Just don't forget to take sea sick tablets :P
Make your way to the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal to board your comfortable catamaran, where coffee, tea, fruit, and muffins are served. Enjoy views from the air-conditioned cabin or the sundeck as you cruise toward Upolu Cay, approaching the shallow reef in a glass-bottom boat. Spot some of Upolu Cay’s vibrant fish and coral on a dive or snorkel, then return to the catamaran for lunch.
The lunch menu varies, but typically includes dishes such as smoked salmon, chilled prawns, and meats served alongside fresh bread and salads. After lunch, cruise to the Wonder Wall, a dive and snorkel site on the outer edge of Upolu Reef that rises 46 feet (14 meters) from the ocean floor. Dive or try drift-snorkeling here, riding the current with a marine naturalist as you watch for corals, giant clams, turtles, and colorful fish.
After your dive or snorkel, begin the return cruise to Cairns, nibbling fruit, cheese, crackers, and cake along the way.

My husband and I ended up booking this trip after getting into a chat with owner Perry. He did not push us to book with him at all. We came to our own conclusion that this was a company we could put our faith in....More
