Experience one of the great natural wonders of the world on this Great Barrier Reef cruise from Cairns. Enjoy 5 hours on the Outer Great Barrier Reef visiting two premium coral reef locations in one day with Indigenous sea rangers. Unlike other Great Barrier Reef cruises, this is the only Cairns' reef tour that includes a cultural experience with Dreamtime stories and traditional dance and didgeridoo performances while out on the reef.

After an Indigenous welcome aboard, passengers will have ample time to snorkel Moore Reef and Milln Reef for an incredible encounter with colourful marine life and coral reef gardens on the Outer Barrier Reef. This Great Barrier Reef cruise includes all your snorkel equipment and wet suit hire, a complimentary morning tea, afternoon tea and buffet lunch plus some fascinating talks by marine biologists.

Great Barrier Reef cruises are the best way to experience multiple coral reef sites in one day. This cruise departs Cairns daily from the Reef Fleet Terminal at 8 am and returns at 4.30 pm and is sure to be a highlight of your stay in Far North Queensland.
