ABC Retains #1 Australian Tourism Experience Title 2023

ABC Snorkel Charters in Port Douglas Retains Tripadvisor’s #1 Australian Tourism Experience Title in 2023 Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards

Kate Urquhart, General Manager, Experiences at Tripadvisor, said: “Closer to home, a 12 person Chartered Snorkelling Tour of the Great Barrier Reef from Port Douglas, has taken out the No. 1 Top Experience in Australia for the second year running, as well as No.2 spot in the South Pacific. Operated by Abc Snorkel Charters, the experience includes a full day out on the reef, exploring some of the more remote snorkelling spots. And, with one instructor for every six participants, promises truly personalised experience.”

ABC Snorkel Charters, a locally owned and operated Great Barrier Reef tour company, is delighted to announce its consecutive win as Tripadvisor’s #1 Australian tourism experience in the prestigious 2023 Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards. This marks their second consecutive year at the top.

ABC Snorkel Charters not only secured the top position in Australia but also achieved an impressive #2 ranking in the South Pacific region and #6 worldwide for Snorkelling & Watersports Experiences. This recognition places them among the top 1% of the eight million experiences listed on Tripadvisor worldwide.

Owner operator Jay Wink expressed gratitude and humility, emphasizing their continued commitment as an Eco-certified and Great Barrier Marine Park high-standard reef operator to exceeding customer expectations. By maintaining small tour groups of just 12 passengers, hand-picking a dedicated team, and visiting pristine low-use reefs, ABC Snorkel Charters ensures an intimate, educational, and sustainable experience for every guest, away from large crowds.

Their #1 position in Australia and top global ranking are a testament to their unwavering dedication and passion. Mr. Wink added, “We are deeply passionate about showcasing the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and grateful to our outstanding team for consistently delivering extraordinary experiences. Their commitment to raising awareness and protecting our oceans is inspiring and effective, as our guiding and interpretive talks occur in small groups of only six guests per one marine biologist.”

With a solid reputation as the leading tourism experience in Australia, ABC Snorkel Charters’ Eco-certified reef experiences have earned them global recognition. For more information, please visit their website or contact Jay Wink, owner of ABC Snorkel Charters on 07 4099 6243 or email
