Amazing experience ! These guys are actively saving the reef so definitely they deserve every penny . We had few marine biologists on the boat that explained very well the importance of this fragile ecosystem and their efforts in preserving the reef for future generations. 5 stars experience, 5 stars crew. Great job guys!

What an incredible day! I cannot recommend Wavelength Reef Cruises enough. From the moment I stepped on board, I knew I was in good hands. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Having everything included in the day for a first time snorkeller was amazing and the crew had so much knowledge to share with us all. The boat ride out to the reef was so much and fun then once we got into the water, it was like we had entered another world. Pure magic. And visiting 3 different sections of Opal Reef was special. Being able to swim amongst all the beautiful coral and marine life was next level. We were all looked after so well with everything from gear to snacks to hot drinks to lunch and even complimentary photos from the day! Another drawcard is their dedication to marine conservation and awareness and replanting of coral. Their care and commitment to the reef and oceans is another great reason to support them. It's not just a business. I was also very happy they had a vegan option for lunch for me as well. 5 isn't a high enough rating. 10/10 and I can't wait to come back.

We could not have asked for a better experience. They only had 30 people on the boat, which meant individual attention and space to explore the three different reef stops. If you want a once in a lifetime experience, they are your choice! The crew answered every question and went out of their way to make our day. We would happily book with them again. They also took pictures and transferred them to everyone free. As an added bonus, they are locally owned family business and all were marine biologists.
