Sail Date: Jan 2017

This is the ONLY way to see the Barrier Reef. We headed first to Lizard island and had a gentle introduction to diving and snorkelling from the beach. We then proceeded over the next few days to a number of pristine reefs with no other boats even in sight to dive and snorkel and experience the reef in all its glory. The staff were well qualified and supervised all the activities so you always felt completely safe. At every site they put out 'rest' buoys so you could just take a breather any time. We had ice creams brought to us on the beach as well as wine and beer at the end of the activities, nothing was too much trouble.

Even though the boat was small and intimate the food was amazing, beautifully presented and cooked with a great range of options over the four dinners we had.

The staff were so cheerful it would have been difficult not to have a good time. We were able to pop onto the bridge when the door was open and see the navigation and charts. They were a brilliant and professional team.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe

None of the cabins were massive on this small intimate boat but it had absolutely everything you needed and great storage. The shower was fabulous and toiletries good quality.
