Go snorkeling or diving at the outer Great Barrier Reef during this full-day tour from Cairns. Explore two different pristine locations and choose from several options suited to your level of experience. Enjoy unlimited snorkeling, or certified divers can do guided dives, while first-timers can take an introductory dive. Look for marine life such as fish, stingrays, turtles, and corals at this UNESCO World Heritage-listed natural wonder.
What to Expect
Make your own way to Cairns Marina to board your luxury vessel for your full-day tour. 

Head to a section of the outer Great Barrier Reef that is approximately 45 miles (70 kilometers) offshore. There, the coral reef is located in shallow waters that allow snorkelers to see easily the abundance of marine life at one of Australia's most famous natural sites.

Beginning snorkelers can learn the basics from the guides and use the provided snorkeling gear, including a wetsuit or stinger suit. If you are interested in scuba diving, choose one of the dive options depending on your level of experience.

Your tour includes a buffet lunch on board the boat. This tour is an excellent option for people who want to a Great Barrier Reef tour with options for all members of their party.
