Experience one of the most beautiful wonders of the world with a visit to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, on this full day cruise to two different snorkelling locations. Your day starts bright and early to get you out to your first protected snorkelling location, so you can relax, snorkel and enjoy the wondrous underwater scenery of this incredible coral reef.

Before you jump in, you will be given snorkel equipment, plus foam noodles, life jackets or wetsuits as required. You will also receive in-depth briefings on safety procedures, site orientation and tuition on snorkelling techniques, to make sure you have the safest, most enjoyable snorkelling experience of a lifetime.

Snorkel guides are available all day long to guide you through the natural maze of beautiful coral and colourful fish, and show you the most incredible world under water, or take your time watching the exotic fish swim in and out of the beautiful unique coral creations.

After your first location, stop for a hot BBQ buffet lunch, including seafood, sausages, salad and vegetarian options.

Your second snorkel will be at a new location selected based on the weather and ocean conditions. Once you arrive at the new outer coral reef, jump in to the crystal clear water to explore more of the vivid colours of the coral and tropical fish surrounding you, and explore this otherworldly location.

Your day comes to a close as you board the boat in the afternoon, ready to cruise back to Cairns.
