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.
