5 Plus Star Day On The Reef!! I have been to the Great Barrier Reef on two previous occasions. Those experiences don’t even come close to today’s experience with ABC Snorkel Charters! The small intimate group setting which enabled us to visit parts of the reef not accessible to large groups was well worth any additional cost!! The crew were extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Having a marine biologist onboard to lead the group and share his knowledge resulted in today being one of life’s experiences that I will always remember and cherish. I unreservedly recommend ABC Snorkel Charters to anyone visiting the Great Barrier Reef!! You will not be disappointed!!”

Going to the Great Barrier Reef? MUST BOOK THIS TOUR! If you have any inclination to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, you should absolutely book your trip with ABC Snorkel Charters. It is a family business, with a dedicated, knowledgeable crew who obviously love their jobs as much as they love the Reef. The boat has a maximum capacity of 12 passengers. Due to the size of the boat, ABC is able to take their passengers to areas of the Reef bigger boats (some with a capacity of 450 people!!) simply cannot go. One of our dive guides (Sam!) is a marine biologist who swam with us narrating the activity on the Reef much like a sportscaster would call a game. It was an amazing, personal and interactive day. The cost is more expensive than other charters, but the experience was priceless. If you are going to snorkel the Reef, book your tour with ABC Snorkel Charters.”

A Perfect Day! Sam, Jen and Casey were awesome hosts. Sam and Jen’s passion and excitement for the reef and it’s sea life was contagious. Easily the best reef tour we have been on. Having Sam as our private marine biologist, guiding and educating our family during the snorkel was amazing – he fixed masks, took footage and his enthusiasm felt as though he was seeing the reef for the first time. Thanks team ABC Snorkel Charters for a unique experience.”
