What our clients say about Lady Musgrave Experience

Absolutely spectacular!

We had an absolute blast! The boat trip was great with really good facilities. Morning tea and lunch was good value. The snorkelling, glads bottom boat tour and island walk were all absolutely spectacular. We saw turtles, sharks, rays and loads of fish!

We will be going again! Hopefully annually!

Great trip with great staff!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our day on the reef getting to see it from the boat and while snorkeling!! The day was filled with activities and the tickets also included more than enough food!! The trip really made me think twice about the carbon footprint I have and how to help create a more sustainable environment. Also the staff really know there stuff and are super friendly, our favourite guide was Natalie!!

Amazing

Had the most amazing day and I was really surprised to enjoy the island it was so beautiful and its made up of purely sand and coral! You see amazing coral and marine life on the glass bottom boat too! Best part was of course the snorkeling, almost guaranteed to see turtles. We’ve been lucky enough to have seen 4! Also seen nemo among the coral it was all really amazing. Staff were the best workers I have ever seen always a smile on their face they love telling you all the facts about the feef and island. Always checking to see if every individual is okay. The food was really nice also. Brilliant experience and well worth the dollars :)

Amazing experience, great value.

Snorkeling the Great Barrier reef was a bucket list item, we were not disappointed.

The Lady Musgrave crew were very professional, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs.

Not only did we experience seeing the most amazingly beautiful eco system that is the Barrier reef, we also saw turtles, dolphins and the highlight was seeing Humpback whales at play only metres away from the boat.

This tour is such value for money, can highly recommend it.

Great experience

Me and my girlfriend had a great time with Lady Musgrave Experience. The crew is really nice and has a lot of knowledge about the island and the reef. Overall really great experience and can really recommend Lady Musgrave Experience.
