Cairns Great Barrier Reef Tours
If you're waffling between snorkelling and scuba diving (or aren't tempted by either sport), there's good news—you don't have to choose! Family-friendly Great Barrier Reef tours combine activities for swimmers and non-swimmers, divers and non-divers, young, old—absolutely anybody!
These all-encompassing Great Barrier Reef tours generally begin with a leisurely cruise to a magical destination on the reef. Board a sleek catamaran and sail away to a lush jungle island or reef activity platform. Some tours are completely vessel-based; others send you into the water with all the vibrant marine life!
There’s a Great Barrier Reef snorkelling tour lead by a marine biologist. And if you’re certified, go to even greater depths with a scuba tour (the alien-like lifeforms that call these waters home will blow your mind)!
Don’t feel like getting wet? Observe the underwater sights in a semi-submersible or glass-bottomed boat. There are even opportunities to see the reef from an air-bound angle on a parasailing adventure or a Great Barrier Reef helicopter flight!
