Now, whilst this tour is a through and through reef trip, it offers more than what initially meets the eye. If snorkelling and the option to add a scuba dive isn’t enough to tantalise your tastebuds, then for those wanting a little something more this could be for you.
A friendly, experienced crew of marine loving ocean experts will guide you out to the reef, keeping you happy in the water and entertained on deck. Live music, buffet lunch and a platter of cheese, wine and crackers on your way home make for the best accompaniment to one seriously epic day.
Book this tour and you’ll board the 35-metre three tiered luxury super yacht (one of the newest boats in Cairns). Coming fully equipped with air-conditioned cabins, fresh water showers and on deck sun loungers you might forget that you got all that for well under 200 bucks.
How about a scenic glass bottom boat tour for those wanting to see the reef without having to get salty? Feeling like a little luxury? Go VIP with the Gold Package and/or book an additional flight in a helicopter over the Great Barrier Reef.
As you can see, there is something for everyone. This trip really is a true all-rounder. Epic bang for your buck and a guaranteed good time.
