Nice and funny in the barrier reef cruise with Evolution

The ride was a bit bumpy but the crew member helped my friend to recover from seasick and all went so good. We did 2 stops with plenty of time to snorkel. Food was good although there wasn't much variety of choices, but still the hole experience is 100% recommended.

Very friendly crew and with superb good food!!!!!!

Food is amazing, with steaks, fish, salads, prawn and various choices of seafood… Even just for the boat trip and food and worth the price. There are many water activities with extra price can chose from. I take the helicopter. Nice deal at $199 for 10min...

Very good! Cruise is very friendly !! The site is beautiful, though takes a while to reach.

Nice cruise! Beautiful reef. You can do snorkelling and can see a lot of turtles and sharks!! Amazing. The food is superb with BBQ steak, fish, and even a cup of wine at the back. Just side note, see if you can join the 1st dive so that you can have enough time for lunch :) Plenty of water activities to do.
