I had an absolute blast on the Passions of Paradise Reef Tour! The staff were friendly and informative, the food was delicious & the sights were incredible. I was a little nervous about diving for the first time but I can't recommend the Intro Dive with this company more! My instructor Nick Ryan made the whole experience fantastic and totally... More

After reviewing many of the available reef tours we opted for this one and are so glad that we did. The day was just great - even a bit of rain on the way back did nothing to spoil it. The boat itself was not too crowded - everybody could find somewhere to sit down. The crew were knowledgeable and... More

We got a good deal through Gilligans hostel and weren't disappointed!! The crew were really friendly. Especially Megsy behind the bar, Nick who did a marine presentation and Griffin who took us for a guided snorkel as we weren't confident in the water. Both reefs we visited were beautiful and michaelmas cay was incredible. We got the glass bottom boat... More

Well, we got off to a bad start with torrential rain drenching us before we boarded. The boat was very full so it wasn't fun to begin with. However, the helpfulness & attitude of the crew we soon got going. The crew were very thorough & informative with all information & made a genuine effort meet everyone. The reef (Michaelmas... More

Hi Geoff! We just wanted to thank you for your great feedback! It sounds like you got a taste of what we in Cairns call the rainy season; we're sorry the rain started your day on a down note, but we're glad our crew were able to make it up to you. We will pass along your kind words to... More

My sister and I booked this trip thanks to previous reviews on tripadvisor. Not the flashiest or the most expensive listed, but near the top of the list and considerably cheaper than others. We booked an introductory dive and enjoyed it so much that we both booked for the subsequent dive - really good value and much more dive time.... More

We were recommended this tour by the staff at our hostel, Traveller's Oasis, and I am so glad we took them up on their advice. I had an unforgettable experience on the Reef with Passions of Paradise. The staff is really what makes the tour, they are friendly, professional, and truly passionate about what they do. I had an incredible... More

The staff were very good and helpful. My 4 year old son who did snorkling for the 1st time really enjoyed and did the snorkling tour for a short time. The glass bottom tour even though finished was organised again just for us as my wife and son had missed out. The Lunch was yummm.. Overall very happy and had... More

My sister and I had an absolutely amazing time on this trip! We were travelling for nearly 3 months and this was honestly one of the, if not THE, best and most memorable days we had. The crew were fabulous, really really friendly and welcoming (knowledgeable and passionate too). In particular, Simon was extremely warm and funny and his efforts... More

Make sure you check it at the Harbor first before heading to the actual boat. We went to the boat first and had to go back to the main headquarters at the harbor. Not a big deal though. Once we were inside they did a great job of handling the large group we had on the boat. I just wish... More

We had a wonderful day out on the reef. The staff were friendly, patient and helpful. My daughter didn't think she would be able to manage the snorkelling but the staff got her in the water on a tour with other first timers and she never looked back. If you aren't going in the water, the glass bottom boat is... More
