Looking for an extraordinary day trip to the Great Barrier Reef? You’ve found it with options for both snorkellers and divers, chef prepared meals, innovative technology and courtesy hotel transfers! Set out from the Cairns Marina bright and early in the morning for a gentle cruise out to the Great Barrier Reef with up to five hours to snorkel and dive at one of the seven wonders of the world.

On this premium Great Barrier Reef tour, you’ll be lucky enough to visit two reef locations in one day. From the moment you step aboard, your every whim will be taken care of including a delicious breakfast and freshly brewed coffee to begin the day right. As you arrive, join a guided snorkelling session with underwater headsets (yes, you read that right!) so you can listen to commentary in English as you explore the reef.

The digital experience is also enhanced with reference guides and Citizen Science projects that you are invited to participate in, if you wish. Introductory and Certified Dives are available for those seeking a deeper reef tour. Up to three dives are possible if you're extra keen. And, then there’s the fresh local cuisine prepared by in house chefs with vegan options available. Don’t forget the swimming 'cossies' for this aquatic adventure.
