Took two days out to the reef and did both Ocean Freedom (catamaran) and Ocean Free (sailboat). Great staff on both, However the sail boat was more personal with fewer passengers, while the catamaran went to a 'better' snorkeling location. Did the intro snorkel and the attendant made it so easy. Both tours provided a fine vegan meal (pre-made quinoa salad). The sail boat actually sailed for ~45mins back into harbor, which was quite enjoyable. Booked through Viator, no issues

Amazing overall experience. We took the ocean free green island and great barrier reef tour with skipper Mike and crew T and YaYa. The boat could hold a max of 25 people but had around 12 aboard. The smaller sailing boat felt like a more personalized experience with the crew and was much more enjoyable because of it. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable about reef and friendly throughout the day. Safety instructions were also made clear. The lunch and snacks served aboard were also very fresh. Snorkeling was a great experience and we saw turtles, rays, and more species of fish than I could count. Sailing causes the boat to tilt with the wind but there are plenty of places to hold onto for safety. While the inner part of green island was not the cleanest, it had a beach with soft sand to relax on and the crew gave everyone the option to stay on the island for either 45min or 1.5 hr. We opted for the shorter time length and snorkeled a second time. Highly recommended and a very memorable experience.

Absolutely AMAZING experience!!! The boat and crew weee just absolutely lovely, kind, and willing to assist whenever needed. The Great Barrier Reef is amazing to see on its own but the Crew’s boosting enthusiasm and energy made the entire experience great!! I would highly recommend this to ANYONE (not just tourists) who wants to visit the Great Barrier Reef and have a great time!!

I took the day trip "Ocean Freedom Cruise to Upolu Cay Reef & Outer Edge Upolu Reef" and I really enjoyed it!We left on time, received safety information, and had a light breakfast of coffee, tea, fruit and pastries. There was plenty of lunch and a fair bit of variety. A lot of pasta salads and seafood.I paid the additional fee to scuba dive. You can do so without your own scuba license, in which case you show the staff that you can perform some safety manouevers, and then tour the reef with them at your side. It was my first time scuba diving and I thought it was wonderful!Unfortunately, there was a passenger who had a medical issue on board. I was very impressed with the staff as they performed first aid. They had a lot of supplies and clearly knew how to use them.All in all, my impression was of a well-run business with competent staff and a beautiful reef.

This was an amazing experience! I signed up to do an intro scuba dive. After feeling a little sea-sick, I thought I was going to skip out on the dive and just snorkel. But thanks to the staff’s encouragement, I was able to do the dive later and even got to swim one on one with the instructor.I saw sharks, sea cucumbers, giant clams, and more! A special shoutout to Paul for being a figurative and literal lifeline the entire time. If he’s on board, you’re guaranteed to have a great time!

We would give 10 stars if we could. The day was amazing, and so well organised from booking online with phone support and easy checking in to great food on board, patient and helpful instructions and plenty of time to enjoy the reef. I did the intro dive and it was incredible! I felt so comfortable with Tia (?).. They even acknowledged our anniversary and made us feel very special!!Thanks for a great day!!There is ample parking nearby with a 10hr limit for about $2 per hour.

Great organisation, super friendly staf! It was our first time diving and we did two intro dives that took our breath away (figuratively ;) ). Great guidance by T, we were at ease right away. My parents snorkeled for the first time in their life (+-56j) and loved it as well! So much beautiful wild sealife in the reefs !

My wife and I went with Ocean Freedom last Saturday. The crew were all very friendly and attentive to the guests every need. They stressed safety and made everyone very comfortable, no matter what their swimming ability. For the non swimmers or apprehensive, they took people out with a life ring which was pulled by a guide who explained what they were seeing. Lunch was the best I’ve had on a snorkelling trip and there was lots of it, prawns, Loks, salads fruit, etc.. Head counts were done whenever snorkelling and diving was finished. Really great experience and would definitely go again with them!

Fantastic day out on the reef on Friday on Ocean Freedom. Family day for us with our daughter and her family up from Sydney.The weather that day wasn’t the best but Mike and his crew made it worth the trip. Really well looked after all day, diving, snorkeling and watching the giant trevally getting chased around by a friendly barracuda. Super day out for all.5 ⭐️’s
