  1. Amazing staff

    The boat was impressively well-kept and operated smoothly. The staff, known for their exceptional expertise and fantastic service, truly enhanced the overall experience. A standout moment was undoubtedly the sheer joy and amazement of spotting turtles from the glass-bottom boat. What made our trip truly exceptional was the staff’s unwavering commitment to ensuring guests were more than satisfied, and they all went the extra mile to make our snorkelling experience unforgettable. They were always there, ensuring our safety while ensuring we had a blast. This meant a lot to us, as snorkelling had been a dream for ages. The lunch was a pleasant surprise, and the option to buy drinks and snacks on the platform was convenient. The dive platform also had practical amenities like changing rooms and wetsuit rentals. This experience went above and beyond, offering excellent value and leaving us with cherished memories. With its awe-inspiring location, exceptional staff, and impressive boat, it absolutely deserves a five-star review.

  2. 非常棒的體驗

    一大早從Bundaberg碼頭搭兩小時船到Lady Musgrave Island(8月途中可看到鯨魚,島附近可看到海龜),島上及周圍珊瑚群極美,沙灘可觸摸活珊瑚;可租借防寒衣及有近視度數浮淺蛙鏡,不會浮淺也有教練會拖著救生圈帶領;雖海底珊瑚群沒想像中美麗,仍是很棒的體驗。
