Great cruise- perfect for kids! Not too long, not too short and plenty of turtles!

The crew was excellent and very knowledgeable and made looking after or getting the kids ready a breeze. The early start meant we were the only group around and the tide was coming in, bringing with it plenty of turtles as well. The reef was actually better than I expected from a frequently visited spot. Once the kids tired of snorkelling they could stay at the beach and play so mum and dad could enjoy some snorkelling time together! 5 star all around!
