Hi Kate, Oh we are sorry to hear this! We most definitely go through protecting the reef in our safety briefing, especially not to touch or stand on the coral. We also have this displayed on our TV screens all day as a reminder.
Although our marine biologist tour is an additional cost it is only $25 per person for a marine biologist presentation and snorkelling guide around the reef.
In saying that, any of our crew are more than happy to have a chat about any questions you may have about the reef. We have 1 of 19 Master Reef Guides on board. Master Reef Guides are recognised as the world’s leading reef guides, interpreters and storytellers sharing the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. On your next trip out, please do not hesitate to reach out to our crew if you have any questions whatsoever! They would be more than happy to have a chat with you :)
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your helicopter experience, it truly is amazing! Thanks again Kate.
