Overview

Spend six hours on the Great Barrier Reef at two different snorkel and dive sites on this luxury catamaran cruise from Cairns. Travel in style aboard a comfortable catamaran to a mooring off of Upolu Cay. Take a glass–bottom boat to Upolu Cay, then have time to snorkel or scuba dive. Refuel with a buffet lunch on board the catamaran before heading to your next destination, Upolu Reef, for more water time, including a guided snorkeling tour.
  • Cruise to the Great Barrier Reef by luxury catamaran from Cairns
  • Spend a full six hours on the Great Barrier Reef
  • Choose to snorkel or dive at 2 locations -- Upolu Cay and Upolu Reef
  • Learn about the reef on a glass-bottom boat coral-viewing tour
  • Take a snorkeling tour led by a marine naturalist
  • Delicious buffet lunch, snacks and beverages included
  • Top-quality snorkeling and diving gear included
  • Cruise is limited to a maximum of 75 passengers
Make your own way to the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal where you board your deluxe 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran.

Enjoy coffee, tea and light snacks prior to departure, then relax on the outdoor sundeck or air-conditioned interior as your vessel cruises to Upolu Cay. Receive a safety briefing from the expert crew to prepare for the day ahead.

Drop anchor off of Upolu Cay and take a glass-bottom boat from the catamaran to Upolu Cay, located on the Great Barrier Reef 19 miles (30 km) from Cairns. Hop in the sheltered turquoise water to snorkel or scuba dive among an astounding array of coral, colorful fish and other sea creatures.

Cruise from Upolu Cay to Upolu Reef while enjoying a delicious buffet lunch with dishes such as smoked salmon, chilled prawns, cold chicken and other meats, accompanied by salad and fresh bread.

Arrive at the outer edge of Upolu Reef at a site known as the Wonder Wall. From the ocean floor, the Wonder Wall extends 46 feet (14 meters) high, reaching to just below the water's surface. Both snorkelers and divers can explore and marvel at the variety of marine life, including hard and soft corals, reef fish, giant clams and turtles. With an expert guide, take an informative tour and drift snorkel around the site.

Cruise back to Cairns after a six hours on the Great Barrier Reef, snacking on a selection of tropical fruit, cheese, crackers and cakes.

This was a grand adventure! The crew was enthusiastic and friendly. They ensured everyone, from beginners to experts, had what they need to enjoy the snorkeling and diving. They were knowledgeable about the fish and the reef; showing people were to look and explaining the natural order of things. There was plenty of delicious food to be enjoyed throughout the day. Coffee, tea and water were available all day, other beverages were reasonably priced.There was not much to be scene on the glass bottom boat, but the guide provided lots of information and answered everyone's questions.

What an amazing day we spent with this crew!!! They were all so personable (especially Jen and Dave and the pilot) knowledgeable and just plain fun to be with. Loved the lunch, endless snacks and glass bottom boat. I also loved that they guided you when snorkelling. I would have missed a lot if they didn't have this service. Don't hesitate to go with them - worth every penny and more!! Love it!!!

The boat and crew were fantastic as was the meal and service. However, the time of year, cloudy, windy weather and tide did not cooperate. We should have researched the climate more or perhaps they should not schedule tours when the visibility is going to be so poor?

Nachdem es x Anbieter und Touren gibt war es gar nicht so leicht die Richtige Tour für uns zu finden. Wir entschieden uns für diesen Anbieter und diese Tour und wurden positiv überrascht. Wir waren ca. 50 Personen auf dem Boot, verlief sich jedoch/kein Platzmangel. Der Ausflug dauerte einen ganzen Tag, wir fuhren 2 Riffs an und hatten im ganzen ca. 6 Stunden Schnorchelzeit im Wasser. Auf dem Boot gab es Kaffee/Tee/Wasser kostenfrei, alle anderen Getränke kostenpflichtig, ein Mittagessen, Obst und Käse. Die Crew war sehr bemüht, auf dem Boot, sowie im Wasser. Es waren immer Lifeguards mit im Wasser, die einen Rettungsring bei sich hatten - sehr praktisch für Nichtschwimmer oder Personen die sich auf dem offenen Meer nicht so wohl fühlen. Wer sich diesen Anschloss bekam auch eine kleine Einführung in die Meeresbiologie. Kurzum: Top Veranstalter!
