Dive or snorkel the Great Barrier Reef on a full-day cruise aboard a catamaran with outdoor decks and climate-controlled cabins. Ride a glass-bottom boat to dive or snorkel Upolu Cay, enjoy a gourmet buffet lunch, then dive or drift-snorkel the Wonder Wall, a spectacular plateau home to diverse coral and marine life. Breakfast, lunch, and equipment are provided for this unforgettable all-inclusive day of exploring the Great Barrier Reef.
What to Expect

Make your way to the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal to board your comfortable catamaran, where coffee, tea, fruit, and muffins are served. Enjoy views from the air-conditioned cabin or the sundeck as you cruise toward Upolu Cay, approaching the shallow reef in a glass-bottom boat. Spot some of Upolu Cay’s vibrant fish and coral on a dive or snorkel, then return to the catamaran for lunch. 

The lunch menu varies, but typically includes dishes such as smoked salmon, chilled prawns, and meats served alongside fresh bread and salads. After lunch, cruise to the Wonder Wall, a dive and snorkel site on the outer edge of Upolu Reef that rises 46 feet (14 meters) from the ocean floor. Dive or try drift-snorkeling here, riding the current with a marine naturalist as you watch for corals, giant clams, turtles, and colorful fish.

After your dive or snorkel, begin the return cruise to Cairns, nibbling fruit, cheese, crackers, and cake along the way.

It was good

The tour itself was good, got to see turtles, sharks and many fishes but some of the staff are rude and blunt, especially one lady who was behind the bar. Apart from that it was good

The check in for this cruise was very quick and easy, and even though there was approximately 70+ people on the boat, it didn't feel crowded onboard. Safety briefings were very concise and professional, with separate ones given to guests who were doing scuba. My...More

The wet suits provide some buoyancy making it easy to almost float. They also provide guides that pull a life saver that several people can hold on to. That's a good option if you're not a good swimmer

They provide all the gear. It was an additional $50! to scuba dive. All scuba and snorkel gear was on the boat. Clean, fitted. They do a great job. Highly recommend.
