Aboard the Osprey V, you'll enjoy one of the fastest day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, cruising at over 30 knots. The Osprey holds a maximum of only 100 people, including 18 friendly, professional and attentive staff, and is equipped with state-of-the-art snorkel and dive equipment. This premium tour is one of the few non-pontoon tours available, and caters for your every need.

Take a guided snorkeling tour, or try a free scuba-diving lesson. Or if you prefer to see the marine life without getting wet, sit back and enjoy a tour of the underwater world in a glass bottom boat, with full commentary provided.

Your Australian barbecue lunch includes fresh fish, steak, sausages and a selection of pastas, salads and prawns. And as you head back to shore after a fulfilling day on the reef, you'll enjoy a cheese platter and selection of tropical fruit while musicians and entertainers make the trip back as fun and enjoyable as the rest of the day.

Why not complete your Great Barrier Reef experience with a 10-minute scenic helicopter flight - Spend 5-hours on the Osprey V exploring the Outer Great Barrier Reef, see the colorful underwater world with an introductory or certified dive, enjoy buffet lunch, free use of snorkel and dive gear plus receive an unforgettable 10-minute scenic helicopter flight over the stunning Great Barrier Reef.
