    I did the Great Barrier Reef Tour with Conpass Cruises two days ago. Weather forecast was not good, weather indeed was rainy and windy. Many people got seasick. But the crew was so awesome!!! They really took such good care of everyone. Even when a girl passed out they were really competent and stayed calm in the situation. Everyone felt so safe! The weather got better, they were so friendly, took their time for everyone. The food on board was perfect, too! They did really tasty salad and BBQ, there were fresh fruit, coffee, and later on even wine! The snorkeling at the two spots was unbelievable!!! One of the greatest experiences of my life! Even the sun came out, we saw so many beautiful fish! I just loved it! Everyone who travels Australia should see the Great Barrier Reef! And I totally recommend compass cruises!!!
