    Overall a very fun experience with many activities available to pick from. We didn’t book any of the snorkelling tours or scuba diving but it’s not necessary since you’ll be able to see the coral and fish up close by snorkelling off the pontoon yourself. The staff were amazing and friendly, however the pontoon could be expanded to accommodate all the passengers on board the cruise boat since it got a bit crowded when everyone was offloaded onto the pontoon. The buffet lunch was also decent, nothing amazing but somewhat fulfilling. The main highlight was definitely the snorkelling experience, it was very easy and fun to snorkel off the pontoon and you could see all the coral and fish up close, under the watch of lifeguards. Would definitely recommend booking with Sunlover Reef Cruises.

    Wow what an experience and a memory to last a lifetime. Was a bit ruff out on the water but all the crew were fantastic and looked after everyone who needed it. The activities once on the pontoon was incredible. Thank you Sun Lover Cruises and all the crew for making this one to remember. Highly recommend these guys

    Amazing experience and well organised tour. Make sure though you plan your activities as you feel 4 hours isn't enough if you don't activity like scuba diving especially if travelling with family. We had a great time. Food was decent and staff very friendly. Lifeguards went above and beyond to help my mum who couldn't swim. Only feedback I have is that the stingsuit do stink and if you can get your own it is advisable. But overall I think I must do I Cairns

    Me and my partner had a great day out on the reef. 4 hours was plenty of time to snorkel the whole area, and go on a semi-submarine ride, eat lunch and relax on the top deck. We were very lucky that the tour was not a full house, as I can imagine the swimming area would be a bit overcrowded if it was. At times there were less than 10 people in the water as there are a variety of activities to do, which was perfect. It’s a stunning part of the reef, very colourful and pristine. We saw thousands of brightly coloured fish, and a couple of turtles. Early June was a great time to go (before school holidays). All the staff were super lovely and attentive, it’s very accomodating for kids particularly. Overall we had a great day!

    Great company to deal with, would recommend you to purchase tablet ls prior for sea sickness if you need too however you can also purchase on the boat if you need too. Lunch is pretty basic but good … Staff are also friendly and helpful. Overall great experience
