Excellent trip to the Great Barrier Reef on Reef Magic

We were very happy with the Reef Magic Trip and ease of booking. Would be more than happy to book through Experience Oz again in the future. We loved the glass bottom boat tour and informative commentary from the crew on the reef and indigenous aspects.

Excellent full day tour of Moore Reef. Very friendly and knowledgable staff.

Fabulous full day out in Reef Magic’s pontoon. Fabulous section of the reef for snorkelling. So many beautiful fish and corals. Many optional activities. Glass bottom boat, snorkelling, semi submersable boat and fish feeding included. Options for scuba diving and helicopter flights. Delicious hot and cold buffet lunch provided. Perfect day!

They made every penny worth it, will do it again anytime

It’s the best experience I had in my life, what a fantastic bunch of people, so helpful and welcoming. Safety was top of the priority so you see them in every corner. The experience itself was worth every penny, especially for someone like me who is non-swimmer and thought would not be able to snorkel. I still ended up going snorkeling for 2 hours. Submarines and glass boat is good one too especially if you don’t want to get in water, you will really miss anything. Food was amazing and had vegan options too.
