Sunlover Reef Cruises offered us a great deal for a day trip to Moore Reef, an amazing spot with plenty of organised activities on their pontoon and in the water. My 8-year-old loved the water slide and snorkelling! The company catered for our dietary requirements...More

Wow! What an amazing experience. In cairns this is the thing to do. Your cairns experience will not be complete without this tour. Reef is teaming with colourful life. Mesmerising! Don't have enough words to describe. This is must.

The trip out and back took way to long, but when you got there it was good. The food for lunch was not bad. Very busy though we had to line up for a while. All the rest was great.
