Just got in from a great day with the team at Passions of Paradise. The vessel Passion III was perfect for the trip to two spots on the reef. This team is locally owned with a genuine interest in the biodiversity of the reef. Everything was well planned and delivered with a sense of fun. The snorkelling gear was top class and we were looked after all the time. There are bigger and fancier operations at Cairns, but if you want a smaller more focussed trip to the reef, this is the one to select.

Passions of Paradise provided the perfect service for a great day out snorkelling and diving on the Great Barrier Reef. The crew were super friendly and fun and made sure everything ran very smoothly. We loved that we got to visit 2 spots on the reef to snorkel. The food was awesome and the set up was great! Having been on a few different GBR snorkelling cruises, I would rate Passions of Paradise to my friends and family above all!

Absolutely amazing experience snorkelling on the great barrier reef!
Erin was so helpful because I wasn't feeling confident in the water but she helped and gave me a fantastic tour pointing out coral, fish species and giant purple clams!
Special mention as well to the chef as the catering was excellent.
We highly recommend this tour group and crew if you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience.

Excellent crew, great equipment, super tasty lunch, comfortable boat. Smaller passenger numbers offer you a more personal experience. We tried 3 different reef tours and this was by far the best, a real standout.

The reef was amazing but the staff made this day perfect. They were fun, attentive, and informative, and ensured that everyone had a great day.

A special thanks to Jake who dedicated his time building rapport and assisting my daughter, who has sensory challenges related to ASD, to feel comfortable enough to dip her toes in the water, and with much patience eventually enjoyed a dip with the lovely reef guide Kirsten. This meant a great deal to our family that we all had a chance to enjoy the water.The guides also helped my son seek out particular fish of interest, and this made his day!

The equipment was clean and easy to use, and the staff were very helpful with fitting equipment to make sure everyone was ready to go.

Lunch was delicious, and it was nice to enjoy a drink on the way back while enjoying some music on deck.

Such a great day, memories we will cherish forever! A special thanks to the photographer who took photos of guests in the water, definitely worth the money to have the keepsakes :)
