Excellent day, cruise out to the Barrier Reef, guided walk on the Island. Glass bottom boat and 50 minute scuba. Food, drinks and great staff. Will live long in the memory, highly recommended.

Wow what a day we had on this excursion to Lady Musgrave. The Boats crew were brilliant and very helpful. Captain Bret was so friendly with all the passengers and we felt very safe in his capable hands.
We upgraded to VIP and it was well worth it. Lady Musgrave Island and the reef around it is awesome. You get a glass bottom boat trip over the reef as well as a guided tour around this tiny island. The sea life and wild life on the island was amazing.
