We had an outstanding experience with the crew on Tuesday 2 July. Their attention to detail, wisdom and insights were exceptional. Sophie, the Marine biologist from Kenya was very enlightening and the whole team gave us a seamless experience all the way from the first email to the last goodbye. The food, the warm welcome and nothing is a problem attitude was next level. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone, whether an experienced diver or first time snorkeler, young or old, everyone was catered for. Thank you.

Had a great time with on the Lady Musgrave Experience. The staff were kind, great communicators even leading up to our experience, and had a good knowledge of the island and reef. We saw lots of turtles and fish around the reef. Everything was reasonably priced and the schedule for the day had a good flow to it. We never felt rushed or bored and it was flexible to what we wanted to do. Would definitely recommend.

Booked the Lady Musgrave Experience for my partner and I. We had to make some changes and they were accommodating. My partner chose to snorkel and I booked the outer reefs dives. The day before. The outer reefs dives were cancelled due to lack of sign up. They changed it to the lagoon dives instead. Considering I was the only diver that day and have a 1 to 1 pairing with a guide. It was totally enjoyable. Staff were all nice, young and energetic. Enjoyed the guided tours to the island and the glass boat captain educating us about the different type of corals. A very educational and happy experience all together.

Amazing experience, would definitely recommend anyone to do it!! We saw so many turtles during snorkeling and on the glass boat tour, the island tour was so great we learned so much and the staff is so friendly and nice ! My only deception was the food menu, a salad bar…. I was expecting fresh products from Australia or local food from there. I come from French Polynesia and we do have those similar excursions and we propose locals food.

Absolutely excellent experience. We chose to snorkel all day and it was amazing.. We did wish that we were allowed to explore a larger area, but do understand they need to keep an eye on guests in the water. We opted for the VIP seats and for us, it was well worth it. Lovely large seats with room to stretch out. Excellent snacks and coffee throughout the trip. We chose this company as they're not limited by tides AND the pontoon makes for an incredibly comfortable day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Fantastic experience, brought my American kids for their first reef experience. My mother was with us and had a broken wrist, the staff was incredibly attentive, knowledgeable and very safety conscious. Would definitely recommend everyone up to and including the staff at the Bundaberg sales office.
