    What to Expect
    Customize your full-day Great Barrier Reef adventure to suit your style and preference, whether you’re an experienced diver or a novice. On the morning of your tour, make your way to Marlin Wharf in Cairns and climb aboard a luxurious 95-foot (29-meter) catamaran equipped with restrooms, fresh-water showers, and spacious sun decks. Head out into the Coral Sea and enjoy the aquatic landscape on the ride to the first of three dive sites, which may include Flynn Reef, Thetford, and Milln.

    At booking, choose how you’d like to explore the reef. Slip on a snorkeling mask and fins if you prefer to stay near the surface, or go deeper with a scuba dive. Beginning divers can take one of two introductory dives, and experienced divers can complete up to three certified dives throughout the day. 

    All equipment is provided, and guides are on hand to provide instruction and ensure your safety. Whatever you choose, expect to spend ample time in the water observing the reef’s famous marine life including coral formations, tropical fish, anemones, and sea turtles.

    In between dives, recharge with morning and afternoon tea breaks and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch midday. Purchase a drink from the full onboard bar if you like, and soak up the tropical sun on the return trip to Cairns, where your tour concludes in the afternoon.

    Note: Book early to secure your spot, and enjoy a flexible reservations policy that allows you to change the date of your tour at no additional charge once you arrive in Cairns.

    Hi Ade259, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! Sorry to hear that the weather didn't play completely fair and that the winds picked up for your trip out. Unfortunately, this can be common this time of the year; the wet season can be a little unpredictable when it comes to the weather.

    We set sail in the morning out to the reef. We had a light continetal breakfast on board, which was perfect for the 90 minute trip out to the reef. If you are not used to boats or there are choppy seas the day of your tour, take sea sickness pills, which are available on the
