Great Barrier Reef Premium Snorkelling Tour Itinerary

This day-long adventure gives you the chance to try your hand at snorkelling, diving, or simply swimming with the colourful array of fish, ancient turtles, and mesmerising coral reefs. You’ll get to discover two of the Great Barrier Reef’s lesser-known outer reef locations, giving you a unique insight into the natural history of the area.

We kick things off from Cairns, where you’ll board our luxury catamaran and get yourself comfortable for the sail to our first outer reef spot. On the way, you can tuck into a morning cup of tea and take pictures of the surrounding scenery until your heart is content.

Once we reach our first location, we’ll brief you on how best to explore the underwater world. You’ll then be given the option to snorkel with the marine life, dive, swim, or simply relax onboard the boat if you’d rather admire the scenery from above.

For lunch, we’ll provide you with a delicious tropical buffet packed full of cold and hot dishes and locally sourced fruit before we head on to our second outer reef location.

Again, you’ll have the chance to dip below the water’s surface, whether that’s by snorkelling, diving, or swimming. Alternatively, you can kick back and relax on board the boat with a refreshing drink in your hand.

You can enjoy afternoon tea as we make our way back to Cairns at the end of the day.
