Day one begins when we’ll pick you up from your accommodation in Cairns and take you out onto the Great Barrier Reef. We’ll arrive at our first reef site where you can jump in and start exploring the enchanting underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll get up close and personal with the reef’s native marine life and enjoy the scenery from a different perspective. 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.
Unlimited snorkelling is included, or you can go for the full experience by upgrading to a dive package. Certified divers can include up to five daytime dives and one night dive for a truly unique way to see the reef. For travellers who have never dived before, we offer beginner dive packages. These include up to 5 daytime dives with no experience necessary.
As the sun sets, relax with a drink in hand at our fully licenced bar. Enjoy a freshly prepared meal in our large dining saloon. Our onboard chef is happy to cater to all dietary requirements (please mention any when you book). Then you will have time to relax in the large communal areas or back at your own 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 at 5.30am on day two for those who want to try the dawn dive, where we’ll jump right into our first diving session of the trip before breakfast. We’ll then make our way to the second reef site for some more snorkelling fun. We’ll spend another day snorkelling, diving, relaxing and enjoying our amazing surroundings before another delicious meal and relaxing evening.
It’s another 5.30am start on the final day, where we’ll take you out for your last morning snorkel session before breakfast. We’ll take in a few more awesome reef sites before we head back to Cairns in the afternoon.
