  • Q. When do you return?

    We return at around 5 pm. We always try to do some genuine sailing on the way home (no motors), and so times can vary either way by 10 or 15 minutes – but generally it is 5 pm.

    Q. Are there many sharks?

    You may be lucky enough to see a little white or black tip reef shark pass you by as small reef sharks are common. However, they are very shy.

We had a great time!

Tim and Jacob helped my son feel comfortable enough snorkeling to enjoy going out, and Fabian took great care of my wife and daughter on their dive. Totally worth it! The entire crew worked together to keep everyone safe while enjoying themselves. If we're ever down this way again, we'll be booking with them again.

Passions tour was the perfect experience for my first time visiting The Great Barrier Reef!!

I have never been diving before and the intro dive allowed me to see plenty of ocean life. The staff was super friendly, funny, and happy to be there! I will definitely be recommending this trip to friends and family looking for a trip out to see the Great Barrier Reef.

Very luxury boat. Many people got seasick but the crew cared about everybody. We went snorkeling on two different spots and had enough time for sun bathing on the boat after. All together a great
