Frequently Asked Questions

How long do we spend at the reef?

You will have approximately 5 hours to explore the reefs which is up to 2 hours longer than similar Outer Reef Cruises. Choose to snorkel just off the boat, join a guided snorkel tour, enjoy lunch and still have time to relax on the deck with a cool drink! You have time to do as much or as little as you like without the rush. Most guests will have travelled a long way to visit the Great Barrier Reef and with so much to see and do it is not something you want to hurry.

Will I see a turtle? Will I see a shark? What will I see?

The Great Barrier Reef contains thousands of different species of marine life. We cannot guarantee what marine life you will see on your day of travel, however there will be many different species of fish, coral and molluscs. Giant green sea turtles are found around the Great Barrier Reef and are frequently sighted at our reef sites. Reef sharks are quite common and a wonderful sight to see.

What Reef sites do we visit and where are they?

Milln, Flynn & Thetford Reef are in Gunggandji Sea Country and are home to some of the best snorkelling and diving on the reef! You don’t want to miss getting in the water here.
Other magnificent Reef sites visited are in Yirrganydji Sea Country, these include Norman, Saxon & Hastings Reef.

Is the Great Barrier Reef damaged or bleached?

Both Flynn Reef and Milln Reef sites are highly regarded as some of the best quality coral reef locations in the region. Tropical cyclones and storms or higher than average summer temperatures can affect the extent of bleaching but are a natural part of the reef life cycle.

Should I be concerned about Jellyfish or Marine Stingers?

While certain species of Jellyfish can be found in tropical waters at any time of year, the majority are harmless to man. Official ‘Stinger season’ in Cairns is from November to May when water temperatures suit the few species of concern. While incidents involving serious stings are extremely rare, your onboard crew are trained to recognize sting types and apply appropriate first aid assistance if required. To greatly reduce your chances of an encounter with a jellyfish protective lycra suits are available for free and come in a range of sizes from XS to XXL.

How deep is the water?

The Outer Reef Wall is a renowned dive location by local dive enthusiasts and keen snorkellers and reaches depths of over 30m.
