Your trip begins when we pick you up from your accommodation. From there, we’ll make our way out to our first reef site, so you’ll get a feel for the surroundings and can soak up the incredible views. We discover a different reef every day, your captain considering weather conditions, seasonality and water clarity to choose the best spot each day. This ensures you have the best possible reef experience each day.
We’ll arrive at our first reef where you can jump straight in and start exploring the enchanting underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef! Unlimited snorkelling is included, or you can upgrade to a dive package. Certified divers can include up to five daytime dives and one night dive – a truly special way to see the reef. Never dived before? No worries! Upgrade to a beginner dive package for up to five daytime dives with no experience required.
In the evening, you can relax on deck or in the large dining saloon with a nice meal. All meals are freshly prepared by our onboard chef, who can cater to all dietary requirements (please mention when you book). Take advantage of the spacious communal areas, freshwater hot tub or chat to new friends over a drink at the fully licenced bar. At the end of the day, retire to your comfortable cabin with ocean views and en-suite. Our 35 metre catamaran is designed for the utmost stability and comfort at sea, so you can sleep soundly.
It’s an early start to day two for those who want to participate in the sunrise dive. We’ll take our first snorkel session before breakfast, where you can see the marine life as it starts to kick into life in the morning. After breakfast, we’ll head to our second reef site and then our third reef site before we finish with lunch.
In the afternoon we’ll make our way back to Cairns. This is where your two-day adventure on the Great Barrier Reef comes to an end.
