Really friendly and well informed staff made this trip a day well spent!
I heard fifty fifty on how good they were. Was happily surprised by how good. We ended up booking them again a few days later for my husbands 30th birthday. Food was great glad to know that at least one cruse boat is aware of over fishing of the reef area.(no seafood served) thank you. We were luckly to not have too many people on board. 1st trip was about 30 i think and the second trip was about 41-49. so not bad at all. I loved the lay out of the boat compared to most of the others I saw in the harbor. Crew were awesome and knowledgeable. thanks again for 2 great trips!
This was an incredible day out to the reef, the staff were amazing, the service, food, facilities and friendliness of everyone on board made this a memorable day. Outstanding value for money...
This was the best experience EVER!! Would recommend it to everyone. Staff were fantastic, the ship was beautiful and the food was delicious. Want to do this again!!!
Check-in at Crystalbrook Marina at 8.00am for an 8.45am departure.
