"The crew were friendly, professional and very welcoming and a pleasure to meet. The Skipper will tell you the history of the junk and be sure you ask. It is fascinating. It has been lovingly restored to full health and is a beautiful vessel. The trip out on the water is a beautiful. Sit out on the deck, enjoy a drink and just relax and enjoy. This experience alone made my trip to Port Douglas worth it."

"Rob the captain was fun, knowledgeable and very helpful with everything. The boat rolls a great deal in the rough waters so beware if you get seasick as our daughter did, as it takes over an hour to get to the reef. Great equipment and food. Taylor the snorkel instructor was helpful and knew a lot about the underwater life. Thank you for a memorable day."

"This is the best day cruise we have done. A totally unique and laid back approach to a reef experiance that makes you feel part of the crew, and not just ferried around like sheep. The boat was comfortable with many different viewing and seating points, with all the necessary amenities and gear you would need to use."
