Ocean Free + Ocean Freedom are two unique and personal Great Barrier reef Tours operating from Cairns and locally owned and operated by Perry Jones and Taryn Agius. Perry has been in the dive industry in Cairns and managing dive operations on 4 vessels since 1988 including Ocean Free since 1992 when he met Taryn. They both worked the boats since then and purchased Ocean Free ( a 16.5M schooner) in 1996 . Having many years of experience in the industry Ocean Free quickly became a well established and respected Great Barrier Reef Tour amongst local agents and the marine industry.
Perry and Taryn have a great love for the sea and reef and are passionate about ensuring their guests have a great reef experience.
They have now been operating reef tours locally for over 20 years and take great pride in their crew who are “hand-picked” for unsurpassed service, professionalism and a high respect for safety. Perry and Taryn view their crew as the operation’s greatest asset.
Perry and Taryn bought their second vessel Ocean Freedom in 2005 and after a year’s total refurbishment the luxury 21.5m cruiser was launched in mid 2006 and is already well established and receiving great reviews in the industry. Their commitment to ensuring a very personalized caring tour where guests are a “name” not a “number” is continually evident on both tours.
The company is also passionate about protecting the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and is an Advanced Eco Certified product.
