  • "No, they aren’t they cheapest, but it’s a small group with lots of staff, the boat was well equipped and you get taken to the outer reef which is much quieter and the coral more intact." See review
  • "The experience with a smaller group is priceless; we took three different trips to visit multiple reefs, and this one was BY FAR the best experience!" See review

Amazing experience

Everyone in the crew was so friendly, helpful and full of life. We were also aloud the freedom to go off in the snorkelling zones ourselves and still feel safe to do so having heaps of crew on the boat watching over us. This was the best experience. The group of people snorkelling was kept to a smaller amount which made it a lot more fun.

I am so glad I spent so much time researching who to visit GBR with. Seastar are without shadow of a doubt the best company. No, they aren’t they cheapest, but it’s a small group with lots of staff, the boat was well equipped and you get taken to the outer reef which is much quieter and the coral more intact. They take photos of you throughout the day which are available to you for free (which is incredible!) Lunch was delicious and varied options. Was such a great day and one I’ll never forget.

Hello Joanna, Thank you for your lovely review. We love sharing the GBR with our new visitors every day. It makes it easy to enjoy what we do have such a beautiful locations to work with. We hope it wasn't a once in a life time trip and you have the opportunity to visit again soon.

The trip out on the Reef with two places to snorkel was fantastic. The staff each had such a sweet considerate way of dealing with things. They also gave the opportunity to have perscription goggles which helped enhance the underwater experience even more.They went all out with the food with a nice variety of healthy options which was delightful. Stinger suits were provided for all . Photos were taken by one of them to assure all of us if our cameras didnt work that at least we would have their photos. Loved every bit of it. wanted to go out and do it again! Thank you Seastar. Keep up the good work.

Great Day Trip

This was our second reef tour of the week and by far the best. We had great weather and a super crew that was very helpful in us achieving a wonderful scuba outing. We saw turtles, rays, tons of fish and the most coral ever. The food was good and everything was to schedule. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended

Hi Steven, Thank you for posting a review. I think everyone wants to go to the reef and see turtles so it looks like we fulfilled that plus more. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your day and would love to have you travel with Seastar again if you ever get back to Cairns.

This was a magnificent trip! The staff was professional and so knowledgeable about the Reef! It’s obvious, it’s their passion! I snorkeled and dove and it was so awesome! Best trip ever! The boat was clean and the food was yummy! My almost 87 year old mom was well taken care of!

A wonderful experience from booking via VIATOR until drop off / farewell by dock by Seastar Team! Great reef locations, very professional team to make sure we were guided throughout the day in a superb environment! Excellent, a must to experience The beautiful Great Barrier Reef. The experience with a smaller group is priceless; we took three different trips to visit multiple reefs, and this one was BY FAR the best experience! Archie and Sebastian - above and beyond! Thanks to Seastar for a unique experience in Cairns/Australia!
