Great tour reef not so great
, Sep 2018
The captain and the ride were great. She took good care of us and we certainly enjoyed the day on the boat. However the reef off of Captain Cooks monument was pretty much worn out probably between the number of people and the surf action it was pretty much dead and not really colorful. The best part of the trip was the boatride and the Captains information on points of interest. The boat was at our beck and call and we could get back whenever we wanted, she watched for our return and had drinks ready for us.
