Loved the glass bottom boat, as a poor sea swimmer it was the highlight of my trip to the GBR. Definitely recommend it.

Charline Harb

Great family day out and was a lovely way to discover the reef.



The Reef Magic staff was very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed our time at the Barrier Reef. The lunch could have been a bit better as the food was a bit salty.
