    Selected Compass Cruises because they were by far the best price with the most inclusions. Crew were all amazing, funny, kind, hospitable and knowledgeable about all things snorkelling and diving. What we saw when snorkelling was unbelievable - the colours of the coral and the fish was something really spectacular. Food was plentiful and delicious. We were so well looked after. Thank you for providing the highlight of my trip to FNQ.

    We went to the outer reef on 25th May Wow, what a great experience we had, staff were excellent in every aspect to make everyone’s day to be awesome, the snorkeling was out off this world, so amazing & even borrowing a glass bottom boat from another company so the group could see the beauty off the reef that couldn’t snorkel. The lunch was well prepared, with yummy salads & even wine, cheese & bickys on the way back & even a group photo at the end of the day. Thank you Compass Cruises for a wonderful experience. Great day

    Incredible experience. The crew was super kind, funny, and helpful, and the food was delicious! It was also so nice to have coffee, tea, and water always on hand. The snorkeling was super cool, BUT I highly recommend paying the extra money to scuba dive! So fascinating and worth the money!!

    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!!!
