With an outstanding enthusiasm about the reef, this experience is a must when visiting Cairns. I would recommend to do it just before going snorkeling/diving. Five stars is not enough. Keep the good work.

We just had a great evening here. I have learned so much about the reef that would otherwise have been difficult to find. I would definitely recommend doing this before any reef trip!

I had Abbey as our marine biologist and she just rocked it. Super recommendable. Do it when you are around.

Reef Teach was unforgettable. I was truly flabbergasted by the information that I was fortunate enough to take in during this time. During a break when we ate dinner, there were intellectual discussions between group members and myself about the diverse marine life in the...More

Hi Carolyn, the best thing to do is to give us an email (I can't post our email on the answers as Trip Advisor doesn't like hyperlinks, but check out our website) and we can see what we can organise. Thanks, Abby, Reef... More
