You cover two of the top attractions of Far North Queensland on this tour — the Great Barrier Reef and Kuranda. A very active day that includes a train ride, cable car ride, helicopter flight, cruise, snorkeling and diving!
Next up, go sightseeing on the sea. Board your helicopter for a spectacular approximately 25-minute flight to the Outer Great Barrier Reef, landing gently at the heli-pontoon at Hastings Reef. From there, hop on board a speedboat where lunch is served, followed by swimming and snorkeling. If you prefer to stay dry, learn about the delicate coral reef ecosystem during a narrated semi-submersible boat tour (payable direct, time permitting). Scuba diving is available for experienced divers (additional cost).
As you sail back to Cairns on the luxury vessel, relax and enjoy live entertainment provided by the guides. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off at the end of a long fun-filled day.
it was a busy and long day but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Hastings Reef was incredible and the Helicopter out was stunning. I will say that this is a great trip if you only have a day but if you have a little longer I would do Kuranda as a seperate day trip. You don't really have the time to explore with only around 30mins before you have to leave for the sky rail.
Australia is wondrous Cairns is especially green and lush my first helicopter a memorable experience flying over the Great Barrier Reef was on my bucket list this definitely exceeds expectations all I cAn say is book your flight I don't want to spoil it awesome experience with an exceptional captain. Living large!
Awesome tour, got to see Cairns in a day! Loved it
The helicopter tour of the reef was incredible---great way to see the massiveness of the reef and capture on video! Also, enjoyed the cruise back with sub to see marine life. Definitely fulfilled a couple of bucket lists
every thing advertised and more
,would recommend to folks who wants an exceptional adventure,,,,
This one is worth every penny.
This was an incredible way to see the are in the one day we had to see everything. It was well done - all people involved were terrific. It was truly amazing and we weren't tired, but very relaxed. There was nothing bad about this tour. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
This was an excellent tour. The pickups were all coordinated and on time, we went from one event to the other with no problems. This was very well organized and executed. When you book something on-line and don't talk with anyone it can be a bit intimidating when in another country to know if things will happen on time.
The best part was the helicopter ride to the reef and snorkelling on the reef. Good lunch on the boat. Kuranda Scenic railway and sky rail was a great view of the area. I would have liked to have visited Kuranda but that would have made the day too long since I chose such a tour with some much in it.
What a great way to fill a day starting with our hotel pick up and delivery to the train our driver was great very helpful making sure we had everything we needed or wanted the staff on the train where great offering to take photos of everyone adding a personal touch to the trip the day was so well planned and ran so smoothly we where extreamly impressed with all staff and the helicopter ride was amazing the semi sub is a must for everyone to see the reef we where well catered and had an amazing holiday ..
