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. There’ll also be time to snorkel for even more tropical fish and coral.
All those water activities and fun works up an appetite, so after the first reef you’ll pause for a delicious hot BBQ buffet lunch prepared onboard, including fresh fish, prawns, steak, vegetarian options and a variety of salads.
In the afternoon, you will visit the second reef of the day. It’s time to hit the skies and enjoy a breathtaking 10-minute helicopter flight over Hastings Reef. This is an unforgettable experience, making this tour a best seller! If there is time remaining, you can hop back in the water for another snorkel before you sit back and relax 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.
