    My 11 year old daughter and I did this as a snorkelling adventure to see the Great Barrier Reef. The whole set up was professional but also fun. Our confirmation email gave instructions about best parking places, what to bring and also where to check in. We were welcomed on board by multiple staff who each obviously have detailed duties to perform throughout the day. Mike was great helping us get our fins, mask and stinger suit (all included). We chose to do an optional guided snorkel with Sammy, one of the marine biologists on board. My daughter and I are capable swimmers but she suggested we hold on to a ring and she pulled us around. So many beautiful sights and great explanations! It was well worth the $45 extra per person. We went solo at the second site - both dive sites were lovely, despite the rough water. LOTS of crew helping get people in and out of water, supervising in water and on boat, and helping when people are sea sick. We felt safe and supported at all times. Boat is mega powerful and was captained well. Lunch also great. Toilets surprisingly consistently clean whenever we needed to use them throughout the day. Crew give simple and clear explanations/briefings. Boat left at around 8.10 and back around 4.15. A day to remember!! Thank you!!

    My partner and I did the 4 day PADI Open Water diving course with Divers Den and it was the best experience ever. We had a great time in the pool, in a safe and friendly environment to learn all the skills. Lewis was a great teacher - very supportive and calm! Then we spent 2 days on Ocean Quest Liveaboard completing our open water dives on the Great Barrier Reef. Despite the conditions being less than ideal, we had a great time practicing diving under the supervision of Hannie. She was super enthusiastic and motivating, making sure we were safe and doing a good job! Best experience so far and can’t wait to come back for more time diving on the liveaboard!! Thank you very much Divers Den!!

    Fantastic trip, with a brilliant tour guide who was so knowledgable. Lots of extra interesting stops on the way home. An ice cream was delicious.

    We took an airconditioned coach from Cairns 15 minutes north to Smithfield Platform where we boarded the skyrail that took us above the rainforest with the end goal of Kuranda. On the way, we stopped at 2 platforms for viewing, a short park ranger guided tour and an interactive station. Once in Kuranda we shopped, and refreshed with an ice cold drink before viewing the Koala's. Then we boarded the 1900's-built train for a stunningly beautiful return to Smithfield Platform.

    We loved our trip with Ocean Freedom.
    Highly recommend, it is a fantastic day out, the crew were so friendly and informative. Special shout out to Rose who made our trip extra special. It was so well organised. The food is delicious. Skipper Mike took care of us all and made sure safety was no. 1 priority. Thanks so much to Ocean Freedom for such a wonderful day.

    I did the Chillagoe Caves and Outback tour and I literally had the best day of my life! The tour was well organized with delicious brekkie and lunch. The tour guide explained everything and was really enthusiastic and could answer every question. I personally loved seeing the outback and desert as well as the caves, feeding and petting wallabies, and seeing real kangaroos! It was definitely worth every dollar. I can highly recommend this tour!

    Despite the adverse conditions the crew worked very hard to enable a great trip and experience. The boat is great and the smaller more intimate size of the party allows a better experience. The crew also make sure every one is catered for including less advanced swimmers and snorkelers and people with medical conditions get closer supervision.

    Fantastic day and highly recommend. Our guide could not have done anymore for us. We were in a group of 16 in total and didn’t feel just a number. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch and learned so much en route to each of the locations

    The vessel is smaller than I thought but the staff is so kind and helpful. The trip is perfect if you travel with kids or weak swimmers as they had the guide with a float ring and robe for you to hold on. The 2 reefs locations are beautiful and I saw lots of colourful coral and fish. Highly recommend

    Amazing day on a sailing boat with an excellent crew that was both nice, chill and enormously attentive. We have visited marine parks in different parts of the world, but this was next level. Great care for those scuba diving or snorkeling for the first time. All the equipment was in top shape. The food was very fresh and tasted great. With three adults we were so happy to have chosen a smaller boat - it felt both intimate and like true luxury! Best suited for those without young children.

    Got on board the Reef Rocket at 1pm for a half day trip to Green Island where we spent some of our time on the glass bottom boat watching some amazing sea life and coral. Went for a swim and a stroll later before getting back on board the Reef Rocket for the crossing back to Cairns. Got back at 5pm, all went too fast.

    Your boat is magnificent. Your service was excellent. Saxon and Hastings reef were spectacular, I saw so many fish. Food was top class. Best value in Cairns.
