Took my kids and grandchildren ages 6mths through to 32. They catered for everyone and we had a fantastic day
A great experience!
Second time for our family of 7 to the reef with Sunlover Cruises and will be back again.
Staff are amazing and food is great, first trip food was individual lunch packs this time it was buffet and was a great selection to choose from.
great booking and trip experience
Emily who sailed the glass bottom boat, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the reef. Made this experience special and memorable.
It was a great experience. Though the 2 hour ride to Moore Reef was very choppy and we all got sea sick but in the end it was all worth it!!
