Overview
More
Sunlover Reef Cruises is proudly Australian owned and operated. Since our beginnings in 1991, we have introduced over 1.3 million guests to the natural wonders of The Great Barrier Reef. Our eco-certified and award-winning tours take guests to explore our pristine Outer Barrier Reef location at Moore Reef. Our Moore Reef pontoon is home to the only water slide on The Great Barrier Reef. Moore Reef has an abundance of colourful coral, fish, turtles and everything on your reef bucket list! With four hours to explore this underwater wonderland, there’s plenty of time to take advantage of all our free inclusions, such as complimentary snorkelling equipment, guided glass bottom boat, semi-sub, fish feeding, underwater observatory and touch tank presentation. Included buffet lunch with prawns. If you're feeling adventurous, explore the depths of our coral gardens by doing an intro-dive or Seawalker helmet dive. Or soar high above the Great Barrier Reef on a scenic helicopter flight.
