Great Barrier Reef Snorkelling Tour w/ Passions Of Paradise
From $240pp

No trip to Cairns would be complete without a trip to the reef.

This day trip on the Great Barrier Reef with Passions of Paradise is all about the marine life experience. Onboard, you’ll find a captain, snorkel instructors, dive guides, and a marine naturalist. So, from start to finish, you can expect to be well taken care of. You might even learn a thing or two. In the water, you’ll have access to high quality snorkel equipment and if you’ve never snorkelled before, or aren’t so comfortable in the water, you’ll be well looked after by the crew. If you’d like, they can include floatation devices and expert snorkel tuition free of charge. Just remember to keep your eyes peeled for the cast and crew of Finding Nemo.

Onboard, you’ll get morning tea, a tropical buffet lunch PLUS wine, cheese, and crackers on the way home. It tops off the day nicely, and for a few seconds, you’ll forget you’re even on the water. If you’re chasing more of an adventure and to really get amongst the marine life, you may wish to pre-book an introductory or certified dive otherwise, subject to availability, you’ll have the option to upgrade your trip onboard.

If you already know you want to do some diving, no worries. There’s an option for you too, no matter what your skill level. Take in all the natural beauty of the reef at their two unique locations, chosen out of 27 great sites, to suit the conditions, and learn heaps about the underwater world from their onboard marine naturalist. After kicking it on a catamaran with the Passions of Paradise crew, you’ll return back to Cairns at the end of the day.
