Your Great Barrier Reef day trip begins by boarding award-winning superyacht Evolution and being met by our professional and expert crew who will make sure you are comfortable and ready for an adventure-filled day. Relax onboard your 35-metre luxury superyacht for the day, as you cruise from Cairns to two exclusive outer Great Barrier Reef sites. Guests enjoy the longest amount of time on the reef in a day tour, with a total of five hours on the outer reef visiting stunning and diverse reefs such as Norman, Saxon and Hastings. These locations are chosen for their exceptional coral density and prolific marine life.

Upon arrival at your first reef location, either Saxon or Norman Reef, it is time to snorkel. Before you jump in, you will be given snorkel equipment, and foam noodles, life jackets, or wetsuits if you wish. 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.

During your time on the reef, you will enjoy a BBQ lunch prepared onboard with fresh fish, steak, a variety of salads, and prawns.

Your second snorkel will be at a different outer reef site, North Hastings Reef. Once you arrive at the new outer coral reef, jump into the crystal clear water to explore more of the vivid colours of the coral, marine life and tropical fish surrounding you.

On the return cruise back to Cairns, sit back and relax enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and a snack to celebrate the end of your day on the Great Barrier Reef.
