This was one of my least favorite trips that we took while in Cairns. It is too close to the mainland and not enough good snorkeling at that part of the reef. I went snorkeling twice after that tour on the outer part of the reef and saw much more!!
Cairns, Palm Cove and Northern Beaches, Australia
This was a fantastic day and one of our favorite tours we took while in Cairns. My only comment would be that there is NO time to shop in Kuranda because you only have a half hour to get off the train and walk through the town. The helicopter was fantastic...they took you out to the middle of the reef and landed by a snorkeling boat and we were treated as VIP's and were fed a fantastic lunch when we were finished snorkeling. The crew were so nice and helpful!!
