I was really looking forward to this trip, and ended up having an exhausting day. The big cat catamaran is one of the most touristy boats I’ve ever been on. Primarily asian tourists and families with infant/small kids on board. Whole boat smelled of rice...More

We boarded our boat at the marina in Cairns after checking in at the ticket office. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We chose seats outside at the back but not up the top, so we were sheltered from the sun. Before we left...More

The island was not really much of fun. The sail to and fro the island was great. The bottom glass boat was also decent to have akhand through some of the reef if not snorkeling.

What was supposed to be a highlight of our holiday was an absolute disaster. It was hailing and we had to walk a 5-10 minute walk along the jetty and island to get to the beach (which we weren’t told about before booking) The food...More
