Jump aboard this beauty of a vessel and sit back and relax as your crew sail out to the reef. On your way out there your guide will give a reef interpretation talk where you and the rest of the passengers will have an opportunity to learn about the magnificent Great Barrier Reef.
Not long after, you will arrive at your first unique snorkelling location on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Grab a snorkel and stringer suit (included) and jump into the crystal clear waters of the coral sea. If you are new to snorkelling you will be given a basic snorkel tuition and you have the option to jump in the water and follow your guide or just freestyle it with your mates.
The Great Barrier Reef is home to stunning wildlife such as turtles, tropical fish, hard & soft coral + much much more. Take time to explore the magnificent world under the surface before jumping back on board for a beautiful fresh lunch prepared by your onboard chef. Magnificent!
Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to bask in the sunshine with the rest of your travel mates. If you prefer to get some shade then why not head below deck and chill out in the air conditioned lounge area!
After lunch your captain will take you to your next two snorkelling locations where you will once again have the option to explore a totally different reef site. Here you may wish to partake in a scuba dive experience – Let us know if you wish to pre-book this or simply ask your crew on board and they will look after you (Subject to availability). Don’t forget your camera!
As the sun sets you will head back to shore after an unreal day exploring one of earth’s most incredible wonders. We’d recommend you head back to your accommodation to freshen up before heading out and exploring some of the amazing food that cairns has to offer.
