54321 We took the Ocean Free sailboat to the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) near Green Island today. There were 14 clients on board a 50+ ft sailboat. The max number of clients is 25 – the small group size is a huge plus in our book). We had really excellent snorkeling on the reef including seeing two blacktip reef sharks several times, a sea turtle that lives in the dive/snorkel spot, and a group of 10+ Giant Trevally that stayed with the boat the entire time on the reef. We also saw thousands of other reef fish of an astounding variety and a rainbow of colors. Really cool. We spent almost all of our reef time in the water. The crew (Captain Scott, Jen, and Paulie) were professional, personable and absolutely excellent. They provided really concise safety instructions, great information on what we were seeing, and had great knowledge about the GBR and Cairns in general. The exposure suits that were provided were also a big plus (I burn just looking at the sun and they protect you from stingers). The meals, snacks, and drinks were also top notch. We are now huge fans! You cannot go wrong with Ocean Free!
