Absolutely brilliant day with the crew today. Every single person on the staff was kind, patient and happy to answer any and all questions. Had a good chat with the engineer Warren who was super friendly and Dusty absolutely nailed it as the semi-submerged tour guide. But yeah every single crew member were absolute legends! 100% recommend! Especially if you have younger kids.Chris
Great day out with Reef Magic. The crew were excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable about the reef. Highly recommended.Patricia
What a fantastic day! Managed to see sharks, turtles, a manta ray and plenty of fish and coral. Snorkel safari worth the extra. Marine biologist on board was very informative and lovely. Great crew. Food surprisingly good. Highly recommended!Ben
Great way to see the Great Barrier Reef in all its glory. Staff were very polite and helpful. The cruise ships were also very tidy and served some delicious food. There is eftpos and internet on the boats. Definitely a great day out with the family, no matter what the conditions. Tons of fun and will be back to experience the reef again soon.Rhys

Had an awesome day with these guys, it was a particularly rough day on the water and the crew went above and beyond to make us and our toddler comfortable. Super lovely, friendly and accommodating. The lunch was really tasty! Great experience.Maryam
