    Totally amazing!

    What an amazing experience my hubby and I had! The crew were friendly and biculturally knowledgeable. I loved the fact that the crew had a genuine heart to protect the sea, but at the same time did their best to show us what this beautiful Poor Knights Island had to offer. I would totally recommend this experience to others!

    Great Trip

    This trip was fantastic and the guides were knowledgeable and so great. We both snorkeled and kayaked but everyone else on the boat was diving and I think to see the most amazing aspects of the Poor Knights diving, if you can, is the way to go. That said - something NOT to be missed!

    Nice day snorkling!

    We had a great time snorkling. Allot of information on the fish, vegitation and location. I would recommend this tour if you like snorkling and want to go sightseeing. Nice serviced boatride. We had luck we were on a smaller boat so more time to spend snorkling and talking about poor knights.
