Overview
Go snorkeling or diving at the remarkable outer Great Barrier Reef during this full-day tour from Cairns. Explore two different pristine locations and choose from several options suited to your experience level. Enjoy unlimited snorkeling, or certified scuba divers can do guided dives while first-timers take an introductory dive. Either way, spot marine life such as fish, stingrays, turtles, and corals at this UNESCO World Heritage–listed natural wonder.
What to Expect

Make your way to Cairns Marlin Marina to board your luxury vessel for your full-day Great Barrier Reef tour. Set sail for a section of the outer Great Barrier Reef that is approximately 45 miles (70 kilometers) offshore. There, the coral reef is located in shallow waters that allow snorkelers to  easily see the abundance of marine life at one of Australia's—if not the world’s—most famous natural sites. 

Beginning snorkelers can learn the basics from the trip guides and use the provided snorkeling gear. If you are interested in scuba diving, choose one of the dive options—introductory dive or a guided trip for experienced divers.

Your tour, which includes an onboard buffet lunch, is an excellent option for people who want a Great Barrier Reef tour with options for all members of their group.

The dive company I went with, would not allow any dives, exploratory or otherwise, within 24 hours of flying. The rules are there for a reason.

There were around 45 on our trip. It's a big boat, plenty of room for everyone. There were 3 groups- snorkeling, certified divers and non certified divers. Certified diver can dive alone or with a guide, extra charge.
