Enjoy a wonderful balance of Great Barrier Reef scenery and convenience with a tour from Cairns to an activity platform on the reef for several hours worth of fun in the sun and sea! On this Cairns to pontoon full-day trip departing at 9:30am, you'll have approximately four hours to explore the marine life and glorious coral of the Outer Great Barrier Reef from the Moore Reef pontoon without having to invest too much time or money that longer cruises require. Be amazed and inspired by the unsurpassed beauty and splendour of this underwater playground, then enjoy a tasty picnic lunch to refresh your senses. Heading out and back to the platform, you'll travel in luxury onboard a modern and spacious air-conditioned catamaran, which departs daily from the Reef Fleet Terminal in the centre of Cairns. With all snorkelling equipment and necessary inclusions required, you'll have everything you'll need for a satisfying and memorable day exploring Australia's greatest natural wonder.
Short tour, but full with new impressions and lots of fun
If you do not have lots of time, we can fully recommend this half-day tour, because it takes you to Green Island, surrounded by reef. You can see colourful fish in the shallow water near to the beaches. There is also a beach with lifeguard and a resort where you can get something to eat. The boat trip from Cairns to Green Island can be rougher if the weather conditions are not ideal, but the staff always keep an eye on you. Perfect trip, thank you!
Value for money, a great time of year to go, awesome prize, amazing experience!
Definitely value for money, we found Sunlover Reef Cruise to be well organised and really enjoyable. Experience Oz offers great discounts and were easy to book online. The catamaran was big and clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. The buffet lunch offered a variety for everyone, though you need to keep an eye on the time as once you arrive at the pontoon and jump in the water to view the fish and reef, the time goes very quickly. I would suggest trying to lunch early though we didn't miss out. Great spot at Moore Reef, with lots of fish around. The bottomless boat and submarine rides were an added bonus when you've had enough of swimming. The weather and water temperature were just perfect for this time of year. We also hired a GoPro 9 for $78 and took hundreds of really clear colourful photos that turned out so good - you also get to keep the SD card. We all had a blast and would definitely do it again 😁
Amazing first time on the Reef. Absolutely stunning views. I will be back.
The staff on the boat were all friendly and more than happy to help. Massive thanks to Evan for the first dive. It was so MAGICAL, I had to book a second dive right there and then. AMAZING Experience and I will be recommending Sunlover Cruises. I will be back!!!
