Explore one of the wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef, on this full day cruise to two spectacular Outer Great Barrier Reef locations, perfectly sheltered to experience incredible snorkelling and discover the deep blue ocean, then enjoy a scenic helicopter flight over Hastings Reef.
No visit to Cairns would be complete without a trip to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef. On this full day cruise, on board the award-winning vessel Evolution, you’ll make an early start for the fast journey to visit two of the reef’s best snorkelling spots, with a five-minute intro scuba dive included.
The friendly crew will supply you everything you need, from the all-important diving and snorkel equipment, plus lifejackets, wetsuits and foam noodles if you need them. They’ll also be on hand to give you in-depth information on safety, techniques and site orientation, so you can relax and focus on having an incredible time diving and snorkelling the Outer Great Barrier Reef. You’ll also enjoy a breathtaking 10-minute helicopter flight over Hastings Reef.
Scuba diving for the first time? The expert dive crew will give you all the information and gear you need, before guiding you through this incredible underwater world. Certified divers can team up with a friend or explore with the guides. There’ll also be time to snorkel for even more tropical fish and coral.
All that fun works up an appetite, so after the first reef you’ll pause for a delicious hot BBQ buffet lunch, including meat, seafood, salad and vegetarian options.
Your second stop of the day will be chosen with ocean conditions and weather in mind, to bring you the best opportunities to see as much as possible.
All that’s left is to sit back for the cruise back to Cairns. Find a spot out on the deck and take in the views or relax in the air-conditioned lounge areas to enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles.
