Full description
Experience the best water activities in the Great Barrier Reef on this all-encompassing boat tour. Departing from Cairns Marlin Marina in the morning, enjoy complimentary tea and coffee as you watch the cityscape of Cairns fade into the distance as you make your way to the state of the art activity pontoon at Moore Reef on a 2-hour journey.

Upon arrival at the pontoon, enjoy your introductory scuba dive, specially-designed for first-timers. With a maximum of 4 divers per guide, you are guaranteed to have an incredible and safe experience. Everything required to make your day on the reef an unforgettable experience is provided and there are great options for both swimmers and non-swimmers alike. Make use of the onboard snorkeling equipment and wetsuits to explore the reef at your own pace.

You can also participate in glass bottom boat and semi-submersible boat tours throughout the day. Travel along a scenic route away from the snorkel area with marine experts providing commentary. Later, watch the underwater action in the underwater observatory where you can watch a daily fish feeding presentation. After a delicious buffet lunch, sit back and relax on the spacious sun deck or have a go on the theme park-style waterslide before heading back to Cairns in the evening.
