Maria Silva, 13 Jun 24
Absolutely brilliant! Friendly pilots, helpful staff and beautiful food. The highlight for us was the glass bottom boat tour and snorkeling. I can honestly say this is the best site that I have snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef. It was an amazing day, and I can't wait to come back. Loved it!!!!!!!
